May 25 (UPI) -- Warner Bros. Pictures is giving a glimpse of the Barbie movie.

The studio shared a new trailer for the film Thursday featuring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.


Barbie is inspired by the Mattel fashion doll line. The film is written by Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach and directed by Gerwig.

The trailer shows Barbie (Robbie) and Ken (Gosling) leave Barbie Land for the real world, where Barbie faces off with Will Ferrell's character, who wants to put her back in the box.

"To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you're a Ken," an official description reads.

The cast also includes America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, Rhea Perlman, Emma Kackey, Simu Liu, Ncuti Gatwa, Scott Evans, Dua Lipa and Helen Mirren.


Barbie opens in theaters July 21.

In addition to the trailer, the Barbie movie unveiled the lineup for its official soundtrack Thursday.

Barbie the Album will feature Dua Lipa, Karol G, Lizzo, Ava Max, Charli XCX, Dominic Fike, Fifty Fifty, Gayle, Haim, Ice Spice, Kali, Khalid, Nicki Minaj, Pink Pantheress, Tame Impala and The Kid Laroi.

The album will also include Gosling, with "more Barbies & Kens to be announced" soon.

Mark Ronson serves as executive music producer.

Barbie the Album will be released July 21, the same day Barbie opens in theaters.

The soundtrack will be available in multiple formats, including an embossed vinyl limited edition and a hot pink cassette tape, and is available to pre-order now.

Lipa will release a first single from the album, "Dance the Night," on Friday.

Warner Bros. previously released a teaser trailer and posters for the Barbie movie in April.
