  • Warner Bros. released a new trailer and new posters for the "Barbie" movie on Tuesday.
  • Fans of the forthcoming film are using the posters as memes of celebrities and characters.

Social media users are giving their favorite celebrities plastic fantastic makeovers as characters in the new "Barbie" movie.

The film's latest trailer and posters, released by Warner Bros. on Tuesday, became instant meme fodder for fans of the upcoming flick. Some used the comedy's tagline, "She's everything. He's just Ken," to share their takes on famous women they think are out of their partner's league.

Others used the poster's template to expand on the movie's already star-studded cast. The images feature characters from the movie, like Issa Rae as President Barbie or Nicola Coughlan as Diplomat Barbie, in front of a sparkling backdrop and a slogan about their doll.

A website called the Barbie Selfie Generator allows users to upload their own photos, write a custom tagline, and adjust the color of the backdrop. Anyone can now turn their favorite pop-culture moments, like Gwyneth Paltrow at her recent skiing trial, into a "Barbie" billboard.

Everyone from The Today Show to the LSU women's basketball team is getting in on the action, sharing posters of legendary weather presenter Al Roker and star forward Angel Reese.

"This Barbie is a National Champion," the team wrote on the poster about Reese, who recently led the Tigers to their first national title.

Country singer and actress Reba McEntire got posterized with lyrics from the theme song of her 2000s sitcom "Reba" as her slogan.

Fictional characters like Shiv and Kendall Roy from "Succession" and robot M3GAN also got the "Barbie" treatment. Some viral posters also include characters that aren't even human, like Godzilla and Payakan from "Avatar: The Way of Water."

"Wow, Greta Gerwig really has EVERY phone number in Hollywood doesn't she," one Twitter user joked about the "Barbie" director.

"Barbie," which stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, is set to release in theaters on July 21.
