Greta Gerwig Is the First Solo Female Director to Make $1 Billion at the Global Box Office with “Barbie”
Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)
“Barbie” has officially surpassed $1 billion at the global box office. And with that, Greta Gerwig is now the FIRST solo female director to join the billion-dollar club.
The record for the highest-grossing film solely directed by a woman was previously held by Patty Jenkins with “Wonder Woman” at $821.8 million.
It’s worth mentioning there ARE two women in the billion-dollar club, but they are co-directors. They’re Jennifer Lee for “Frozen” ($1.3 billion) and “Frozen 2” ($1.45 billion) and Anna Boden for “Captain Marvel” ($1.1 billion).
In related Greta news, she just celebrated her 40th birthday on Friday . . . so, Ryan Gosling sent her a FLASH MOB of Kens and Barbies to crash her Pilates class and dance for her. (Check out the flash mob here.)
