Barbie hits a passerby in front of Ken’s horrified eyes, Will Ferrell chases them on rollerblades, the couple flees in cowboy outfits…
This month of June 2022 will have been marked by the daily posting of photos from the filming of Barbieof Greta Gerwig. After posting two official portraits of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling in Barbie and Ken’s costumes, we discovered that the director chose outfits to match her heroine to direct his actors on the set. Then Margot turned several roller scenes with his partner. Neon outfits that “match”, matching visors, yellow elbow and knee protectors, the two actors did not go unnoticed on the beach of Venice Beach, California! the “skate king” will ferrell either: in a black suit and pink tie, he chased them for a scene, also perched on rollerblades. This remains to be confirmed, but in this film he would play the boss of a company manufacturing toys, who would be directly inspired by Mattel. He would go in this film in search of the duo escaped from the marvelous universe of Barbieland for the real world.
Other clichés then appeared: still on the beach, Barbie defended herself from a passerby who put a hand on her buttocks. We then see the actress giving him a fake punch from all angles, while Gosling screams at the top of his lungs. An exaggerated cry that was caught on the spot by fans, on video, and which should bring back good memories to fans of The Nice GuysShane Black’s film in which he had a blast in a comic role:

Everything we know about Barbie, the film by Greta Gerwig with Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling
During the filming of this same scene, a blond, muscular and tanned man exactly like Gosling was also photographed with them. The actor’s understudy? Or another Ken? It is rumored that the film will feature several versions of Barbie and Kenincluding Issa Rae (Insecure) and Hari Nef (Assassination Nation) for the heroine and Simu Liu (Shang Chi) and Ncuti Gatwa (Sex Education) to play her boyfriend.
Finally, a handful of images from another sequence show the duo in cowboy outfits, again in pink and black, running at high speed making horrified faces. They are obviously trying to escape someone or something off-screen. Is it still the character of Will Ferrell who pursues them? We’ll check it out at the cinema from July 19, 2023…
Margot Robbie promises a Barbie movie “totally different” from what we can imagine
