Zack Snyder Says More People ‘Probably’ Watched Rebel Moon Than Saw Barbie in a Theater

Zack Snyder says Rebel Moon was “probably” seen by more people compared to those who saw Barbie in a theater.

Per Variety, Snyder appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience to discuss his recent Netflix movies. While Snyder has a long history of making movies with Warner Bros., his last two movies — Army of the Dead and Rebel Moon — were both Netflix releases.

“You think about Netflix, for instance, where you push a button,” Snyder said. “Rebel Moon, right? Say right now it’s almost at 90 million views, right? 80 or 90 million accounts turned it on, give or take. They assume two viewers per screening, right? That’s the kind of math. So you think if that movie was in the theater as a distribution model, that’s like 160,000,000 people supposedly watching based on that math. 160,000,000 people at $10 a ticket would be…what is that math? I don’t know. 160,000,000 times ten. That’s 1.6 billion. So more people probably saw Rebel Moon than saw Barbie in the theater, right?”

How many people saw Barbie in the theater?

Released in United States theaters in July 2023, Barbie made $1.446 billion at the global box office. According to Snyder’s math of $10 a ticket, that would mean somewhere around 144,600,000 (give or take) paid to see Barbie in theaters.

Snyder continued, “That’s how crazy Netflix is. That’s the distribution model that they’ve set up. I was at this thing the other day, and we were talking about Rebel Moon 2. And they were like, ‘Well, talk about Rebel Moon, the first one.’ I’m like, ‘No, go f****ing watch it. I know you have it at your house.’ It’s not like a theater situation. You could turn it on your phone right now and watch it right here if you wanted. That’s how crazy it is. This model, this machine they’ve built, is really something else. It’s really crazy if you think about it.”

Rebel Moon — Part One: A Child of Fire is currently streaming on Netflix, while Rebel Moon — Part Two: The Scargiver releases on April 19, 2024.

Barbie, meanwhile, is currently streaming on Max.
