Not to exaggerate, but the single most awaited day for movie buffs around the world so far this year is the 21st of July. The two MUCH-AWAITED POLAR OPPOSITE films, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer will hit the theatres on the same day, and we, the cinephiles, haven’t been able to keep calm ever since this realisation struck us.

It’s not that we weren’t already looking forward to these two films, but let’s say our excitement heightened when we saw the compelling trailers. What’s funny is that while team Barbie is all out with their marketing, team Oppenheimer is doing close to nothing (in comparison) to promote the film. Guess they already know Christopher Nolan’s and Cillian Murphy’s partnership is enough to get people excited for the film’s release.

On the social media front, it’s Barbie vs Oppenheimer, even though most of us will be tuning in to watch both films. The situation has escalated to the point that people are struggling to decide which movie to watch first and have resolved on seeing them both on the same day. Hell! Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig have shared pictures with Oppenheimer tickets.

This major dilemma has also resulted in an epic meme fest on Twitter. People have the funniest reactions to the upcoming release day clash between Barbie and Oppenheimer.
