After almost four years since 2016, the trailer for her spinoff ‘Birds of Prey’ Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn finally released its trailer, October 2.
Robbie also serves as the producer of Birds of Prey. This DC film casted the best actors and actresses to join Robbie in the movie, namely: Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Helena Bertinelli / Huntress), Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Black Canary), Rosie Perez (Renee Montoya), Chris Messina (Victor Zsasz), Ella Jay Basco (Cassandra Cain), Ali Wong, and Ewan McGregor (Roman Sionis/Black Mask).
“You can expect something really fun and a bit wild and totally unique. Every day we were there, we were doing something that just felt really weird and funny and unlike anything else I’ve seen before in this genre. It was incredibly exciting to get to do that. We really got to work. We just played, and we had fun,” Winstead a.k.a Huntress revealed.
The director of the film, Cathy Yan, is the 3rd female filmmaker to join the DC and the first Asian woman to direct a movie from the DC Comic Universe.
“I could not put the script down, it had so much dark humor to it which a lot of my work does, and there are themes of female empowerment which are so strong and relatable. So I went in with, not with confidence, but at least a sense that I belonged in the room, that somehow magically in terms of timing and luck that this opportunity was open to me and I was definitely going to make the best of it.” Yan said during a panel appearance last year.
Birds of Prey is scheduled to be released on the big screens in the United States on February 7, 2020, by Warner Bros. Pictures.
