Trailer - 'Birds of Prey'
Stripped of the shackles that are Suicide Squad and the Joker, Margot Robbie’s Harely Quinn is back in Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey. The first trailer for the film can be viewed below:
I’m not going to lie, this looks like a good time…but so did Suicide Squad when that trailer came out and implemented Bohemian Rhapsody in a very fun way. Now, I’m one of the few that didn’t hate Suicide Squad, but did recognize that the editing on that film was an absolute hack-job. That said, I’m sure Warner Bros. has learned from their mistakes and this should be at least a more coherent film.
What do I love about this trailer? Margot Robbie. She is eating up every scene and completely embodies Harley Quinn. This trailer further hits home just how perfectly cast she is in this role. I’m still not sold on the action as there’s really not much on display, but with John Wick director, Chad Stahelski coming in to focus on making the action better, I’m sure it will be just fine.
Overall, I’m cautiously optimistic. This looks like an entertaining film and while I can’t say I’m hyped to see it, I can at least say that I have more confidence in it delivering.
Birds of Prey hits theaters on February 20, 2020.
