Since tipping onto the cinema in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 The Wolf of Wallstreet, Margot Robbie has actually taken Hollywood by tornado. Though an outright ko, the starlet has actually never ever chosen the pigeon-holding “hot blonde” duties Hollywood was also fast to use her after her Wallstreet launching. Instead the I, Tonya celebrity has actually been a practical taking starlet that has actually meticulously constructed her profession. Robbie is not terrified to take the reins. From writing a personalized letter to Quentin Tarantino requesting a duty to beginning LuckyChap Entertainment with 3 of her closest close friends, the starlet understands what she desires. And according to supervisor Greta Gerwig, supervisor of the Robbie- generated upcoming Barbie film, Robbie is ‘magic.’ The director can even pinpoint the moment on set when this revelation occurred to her. 

In a recent Vanity Fair profile of Margot Robbie, Gerwig recounts a moment on the set of Barbie when she wanted to shoot the actress in slow motion while the rest of the cast performed at regular speed. The director says the Suicide Squad actress did some quick calculations and, within moments, nailed precisely what she was looking for from the star. Gerwig said:

Once, I wanted to capture Margot in slow motion but have everything else move fast, so I went up to her and said, ‘Could you move at 48 frames per second, even though we’ re capturing in 24 structures per 2nd and also everybody else will be relocating at normal rate?’ She did some computation behind her eyes and after that fucking did it. She actually relocated at a greater framework price. I do not understand what group that enters into apart from magic.


With that kind of “magic” in her tool kit, it’s no surprise Margot Robbie is not just a two-time Academy Award candidate however additionally a globally megastar. Performing at variable framework prices will certainly take place the ever-expanding checklist of excellent points the Australian- birthed starlet can do.

We do not understand every little thing concerning the upcoming Barbie film, however what we do know is that the film was just about dead after celebrities like Anne Hathaway and also comedian Amy Schumer left earlier versions of the project. But many thanks to Robbie’s rate of interest in the product and also her need to do a subversive take on the blonde bombshell covered in plastic,the project was officially back on We understand the Harley Quinn starlet and also Ryan Gosling (who was brilliantly cast as Ken) will certainly do a fantastic task bringing the cherished 63-year-old Mattel personalities to life. And also if the film isn’t great (however with Gerwig at the helm, that’s extremely not likely), we will certainly constantly have that amusing and alsointernet-breaking first look at Gosling as Ken

After greater than a years in limbo, The Barbie film will ultimately rollerblade its method onto the cinema, many thanks mostly to Margo Robbie’s stewardship, in July of 2023. And it is just one of the upcoming 2023 new movie releases I’m most thrilled for. We’ll need to wait a little bit longer to see the magic the Birds of Prey celebrity gave the duty, however while we wait, why not have a look at all the 2022 new movie releases that are slated to find out in the meanwhile?
