Harley Quinn struggles to get over the Joker in new trailer for Birds of Prey

Harley Quinn struggles to get over the Joker in new trailer for Birds of Prey

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new trailer for Birds of Prey - and boy, is it an upgrade from every other trailer we’ve gotten for this movie. 

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) - yes, that is the movie’s actual full name - will feature the DC Comics superhero team of the same name, with a couple of adjustments. Instead of having the team be composed of Batgirl, Huntress and Black Canary, Batgirl’s been swapped out for Harley Quinn - turning the team of do-gooder superheroes into a team of aggressive vigilantes. 

The movie starts out with Harley (Margot Robbie) breaking up with her not-so-forever love, the Joker. A couple canisters of cheez whiz later, she finds herself in trouble with another supervillain who wants her dead - Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor), AKA the crime lord Black Mask. 

She then teams up with four other women Black Mask wants dead - the Gotham City police detective Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and troublemaker Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco). 

I’ve got to say, it’s nice to see DC diving deep into the weirder comicbook stuff - like Harley having hyenas that actually laugh. Having Cassandra Cain just be some runaway is a little annoying… but you can read my thoughts on that here.

Birds of Prey will arrive in cinemas on February 7, 2020.
