When people pegged on to the fact Barbie and Oppenheimer were set to go head to head in theaters this past summer, social media were quick to coin the term, "Barbenheimer." Going to see both movies became something of a cultural event, not least because they were so completely different.  

We thought that was the end of it ("Saw Patrol" didn't take off in quite the same way when PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie and Saw X faced off last month) but The Hollywood Reporter (via reveals that a B-Movie Barbenheimer project is officially on the way. 

Charles Band, a B-movie icon who has been producing low-budget horror comedies for decades, isn't shy in admitting this crossover - which boasts the tagline "D-Cup, A-Bomb" - is a shameless cash grab. 

"It’s 100 percent true," he acknowledges. "But it’s also an opportunity to have fun with the bizarre coupling of these two movies and the combination of Barbie’s vibe and the darkness of Oppenheimer. You mix that together and you have such an opportunity for dark humor."

Band's credits include direct-to-DVD movies like Puppet Master, Ghoulies, Trancers, Demonic Toys, and Evil Bong, and the filmmaker is already working on merchandise - including dolls - for a project he's convinced will be among the biggest of his storied career. 

"Let’s just say she’ll definitely have her arms around a big atomic bomb," he teased, adding that the "silly" movie is also his way to bring some levity into the world. "[It] seems like every other feature is dark and depressing, and it’s like, God, we need a little humor going into 2024."

So, what is Barbenheimer about? 

According to the trade, it "follows Dr. Bambi J Barbenheimer, a brilliant scientist doll living in Dolltopia, a world of endless summers and beach parties, and her boyfriend Twink Dollman. So far, so Greta Gerwig’s neon-colored billion-dollar megahit."

"Turning Nolan’s distinctly less pink dial up a notch, our Dr. Barbenheimer, incensed by the brutal treatment the dolls receive at the hands of human children, ventures into the real world where she experiences humanity at its worst and, naturally, decides to build a giant nuclear bomb to take it all out."

The synopsis adds, "They got great looks and a super attitude! Oh, and now they’ve got the bomb."

With a budget of less than $1 million and a script by Band and Adam Felber, along with songs penned by Ninja Sex Party's Brian Wecht, we're expecting Barbenheimer to bypass theaters and go straight to DVD. However, it's bound to generate more interest than much of Band's past work, especially if the Hollywood trades are breaking the news about its development (that sort of coverage did wonders for Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey).

Take a closer look at the first teaser image for the movie below.

This right here is exactly why people high on cocaine need to be put in charge of story ideas again!

@WarMonkey - my guy, just made the best case for legalizing cocaine.

"Band's credits include direct-to-DVD movies like Puppet Master, Ghoulies, Trancers, Demonic Toys, and Evil Bong"

DVDs weren't commercially available when those first four movies came out. Nitpicking aside, Band is absolutely an icon of trash cinema. There's a chance I'll see this before I see Barbie OR Oppenheimer.

@ClintThaHamster - that's dumb af if you haven't seen either

@bobevanz - I can't imagine that a nuanced understanding of either Barbie or Oppenheimer will be required to enjoy "Barbenheimer, from the director of Dollman vs. Demonic Toys.

I like the tag line better as "A-Bombs and D-Cups!"
marvel72 - 11/6/2023, 7:27 AM
D-Cups got my attention.
WhatIfRickJames - 11/6/2023, 7:36 AM
Would watch 100%

Please shoot in IMAX and have the print be 10 pounds heavier than Oppenheimer just to [frick] with Nolan

Watching Mission Impossible:Dead Reckoning later today on 4K Blu-ray.

Should be entertaining, I love the previous 4.

@marvel72 - I just recently watched it myself, it was truly enjoyable!
WEAPONXOXOXO - 11/6/2023, 8:07 AM
@marvel72 - The main plot was a little disappointing but still very entertaining. Enjoy.
marvel72 - 11/6/2023, 8:16 AM
@Kadara - That's good to hear,can't wait.
marvel72 - 11/6/2023, 8:17 AM
@WEAPONXOXOXO - Yeah I heard but the stunts and actions look great.
bobevanz - 11/6/2023, 9:18 AM
@marvel72 - stunts and actions can only take you do far
marvel72 - 11/6/2023, 9:19 AM
@bobevanz - I agree, however it's still probably better written than most of the comic book movies released this year.
KaptainKhaos - 11/6/2023, 9:16 AM

thedrudo - 11/6/2023, 9:16 AM
