MTRCB To Review Vietnam-banned ‘Barbie’ Movie

THE Vietnam-banned movie "Barbie" starring Oscar-nominees Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken, will be reviewed for rating and classification today, July 4. 

Movie and Television Review and Classification Board chairperson Lala Sotto made the statement when the MTRCB was asked if the Philippines will also ban the movie for showing a map which featured China's nine-dash-line in the South China Sea.

According to the latest statement regarding the movie... 

"We confirm that the Board has reviewed the film “Barbie” today, 04 July 2023. At this time, the assigned Committee on First Review is deliberating on the request of Warner Brothers F.E. Inc. for a Permit to Exhibit. 

"Once available, a copy of the Permit to Exhibit or the Committee’s decision will be uploaded to the Agency’s official website: mtrcb.gov.ph." 

“Barbie” is set to open in Philippine cinemas on July 19 and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Discovery company.
