Having been through countless developments over the last decade – including a hideous-sounding Amy Schumer iteration – the live-action feature film adaptation of Mattel’s 60-year-old property has finally been brought to life.
Written and directed by indie legend Greta Gerwig and headed up by Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, the movie’s plot has long been shrouded in secret, with only a few leaked set pics cluing us into the film’s knowingly garish aesthetic. Today we learn more courtesy of its first teaser trailer – and while the story still remains a mystery, the surprising, delightfully humorous riff on Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey at its core tells us that, tonally, we should simply expect the unexpected.
