‘Barbie’ No Longer Box Office Doll as ‘Blue Beetle’ Dethrones Her

“Barbie” is no longer the box office doll now that “Blue Beetle” quickly crawled its way to the top.

The DC Comics flick took home $10 million on its opening night Friday, according to IMDB’s Box Office Mojo.

The Post called the superhero movie — which stars Xolo Maridueña of “Cobra Kai” fame — “refreshingly spry.”

The Ángel Manuel Soto-directed film is on track to rake in $25 to $27 million in North America this weekend alone, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It has already made history by being the first live-action superhero film centered around a Latino protagonist.

It managed to beat out “Barbie,” who reigned at the box office for the four Fridays since its opening on July 21. It landed in second place with $6.2 million in sales.

The fantasy comedy will be available to stream at home on Sept. 5 and eager fans can pre-order it on Amazon.

The comedy “Strays,” which also premiered on Friday, came in third with $3.43 million.

The film features talking pooches voiced by Will Ferrell and Jamie Foxx.

USA Today said it was “definitely a treat, especially for dog lovers who will howl with laughter and also cry at its empathetic understanding.”

Oppenheimer,” which was in second place last week, slipped to the No. 4 spot, earning just over $3 million.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” took fifth, with $2.3 million in sales.
