Ready for a double feature? Countless cinephiles are set for back-to-back viewings of the most anticipated releases of 2023: Barbie and Oppenheimer.

On one (hot pink) hand, you’ve got the easy breezy beautiful Barbie, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as the iconic Barbie and Ken. On the other: Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, a dark biopic in which Cillian Murphy depicts the life and legacy of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb.

The internet has been wilding out since these flicks were both scheduled for a July 21 release, blessing us with the phenomenon that is Barbenheimer. Get psyched for a day at the movies with these unhinged and delightful Tweets, Toks, and more.

We’re starting off strong with this Roytok that’s wildly applicable to our weekend plans.

You see us in a cloud of pink? Mind ya business.

Come on, Barbie, let’s go contemplate the hubris of mankind.

We have to admit this LaLa Land mashup is lowkey gorgeous.
