The clash of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and Greta Gerwig’s Barbie has been dubbed ‘Barbenheimer,’ and it is one of the biggest moments of pop culture in recent times. A theatre in Chhattisgarh recently showed Barbie subtitles when fans went to see Cillian Murphy’s Oppenheimer. When a user took to social media to share the pics, the Internet quickly started joking about the situation.
Other notable actors in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer include Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, and Emily Blunt. In terms of Gerwig’s Barbie, the film stars Margot Robbie in the lead, as well as Ryan Gosling and Marvel’s Simu Liu in supporting roles.
Returning to the blunder, a user took to social media to share how a theatre in Chhattisgarh, India accidentally showed Barbie subtitles while Oppenheimer was playing on the screen. The Internet wasted no time in joking about the error, claiming that ‘Barbenheimer’ was real. Many people on social media claimed that it could only happen in India, while others shared how Indians took ‘Barbenheimer’ to new heights.
Oppenheimer, directed by Christopher Nolan, is about the “father of the atomic bomb,” J. Oppenheimer, whereas Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig, is about the famous doll’s tryst with humans.
