Margot Robbie is one of the busiest people in Hollywood, but it goes without saying that she is also one of the most beautiful people in show business (and the world at large). In this image posted to a fan account on Instagram (which has the handle @margotupdates), Margot Robbie seems to be caught in the throes of ecstasy, with one hand flung up over her head and the other in front of her wide-open red dress. It is a striking image, but isn’t everything that the Harley Quinn actress gets involved with?

This particular Instagram image is a still from the upcoming film Babylon, in which Margot Robbie will star as a young woman named Nellie LaRoy making her way in the early days of Hollywood. The trailer for Babylon focuses on Margot Robbie and Diego Calva, a young Mexican-American attempting to break into the film industry during an (even more) extremely racially segregated era. As one can see from the trailer, it looks like things are going to be a pretty wild ride for everyone in the film. 

Which is a whole lot of people; in addition to Margot Robbie and Diego Calva, Babylon stars Brad Pitt, Jean Smart, Lukas Haas, and many, many more, playing a mix of real-life 1930s film industry figures and fictional characters. Spider-Man himself, Tobey Maguire, plays a fictional film director named James McKay, while Max Minghella plays Irving Thalberg, an enormously influential early film producer who died in 1936. Don’t Worry Darling director Olivia Wilde will also appear in the film.

Interestingly, Babylon is not the only movie this year in which Margot Robbie will play a troubled, artistically-inclined young woman in the 1930s. The other, the David O. Russell film Amsterdam, co-stars Christian Bale, John David Washington, and a similarly enormous cast of characters playing both fictional and real characters. The film was highly anticipated and almost immediately bombed in theaters, being savaged by critics and expected to be an enormous financial loss for 20th Century Studios.


However, it will take more than a single very hyped, very disappointing darkly comedic mystery film to shake Margot Robbie from the A-list of Hollywood these days. In addition to Babylon (which is directed by the Academy Award-winning filmmaker Damian Chazelle), Margot Robbie will soon be starring in the upcoming Barbie film, which takes the iconic American doll and attempts to build a narrative around it, Ryan Gosling, and Will Ferrell. 

Additionally, Margot Robbie will also be starring in the upcoming science fiction film AsteroidCity. She will be joining yet another huge ensemble cast for the Wes Anderson movie, which will include Maya Hawke, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Matt Dillion, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Hanks, but not Bill Murray, who contracted Covid-19 before he could film scenes for it. There seems to be an interesting trend in Hollywood for massive ensemble films these days, but we shall see if Margot Robbie’s imminent dose of increased power at DC Studios cuts down on her ability to star in them.
