"Isn't this fun?! It's just like a sleepover!" Warner Bros has finally unveiled the first full trailer for Birds of Prey, the Harley Quinn movie arriving in theaters next February. They quietly dropped a teaser in theaters a few months ago, but it never debuted online. Now we have an exciting official trailer to watch and yes this looks badass. The full-on title is Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn, starring Margot Robbie as the iconic DC Comics villain, reprising her role from Suicide Squad (it's sort of a sequel but without Joker or Batman). She joins superheroes Black Canary, Huntress, & Renee Montoya to save a young girl from an evil crime lord. The full cast includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Ella Jay Basco, Rosie Perez, Chris Messina, Ewan McGregor, Charlene Amoia, Talon Reid, with Ali Wong. So far so good! Lots of slick action, lots of colors, lots of goofy jokes.
Here's the first full-length trailer (+ fun posters) for Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey, direct from WB's YouTube:

Harley Quinn has split with the Joker following the events of Suicide Squad. Batman has disappeared, leaving Gotham City unprotected from crime. When a young girl named Cassandra Cain comes across a diamond belonging to crime lord who goes by the name of Black Mask, Harley joins forces with Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya to protect her. Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn is directed by Chinese-American filmmaker Cathy Yan, her second film following Dead Pigs previously, and a number of short films. The screenplay is written by Christina Hodson; based on the "Birds of Prey" comics created by Chuck Dixon, Jordan B. Gorfinkel, Greg Land. Warner Bros will release Yan's Birds of Prey in theaters everywhere starting February 7th, 2020 early next year. First impression?
I... don't... know... does it not look the same way of "jagged" as Suicide Squad did?

Agree, maybe that's the point though? Still looks insanely fun.

I love Margot Robbie, to be honest this movie would not exist without her and this time she goes all in on her character and give her even more meaning. Trailer gives a vibe that it will be something unique and quite special.

Girls just wanna have fun? And they're going to make us watch it for all the colors and them being nice looking? They just might do that ...

Looks good for such an inexperienced director. I might watch it sometime. And Winstead is always a plus.

Terrible trailer. And why does Robbie sound like Vanellope von Schweetz?

Because no one can compare to Arleen Sorkin (voiced Harley in Batman The Animated series where the character originated). It's like someone trying to sound like Mark Hamil (Joker in Batman TAS) or Heath Ledger. Robbie does a great job though, too bad this is a one-note film for such a great character.

A a side note, Arlene was on the soap "Days of Our Lives" back in the eighties playing a eccentric character "Calliope" opposite another eccentric character played by John de Lancie ("Q" on Star Trek). Trivial, I know...

i'll see it when it comes to tv. it really doesn't interest me as much as i first thought it would.

Could be fun, looks promising. Plus it's got a good cast. I doubt I'll hit the theater for it, but I'll check it out on streaming or redbox. Also, did anyone else recoil a bit at that knee shot? Damn.

Looks like a swing and a miss. Although Robbie is perfect as Harley Quinn, the story and such just looks like a carry over from SUICIDE SQUAD. A real shame.

If this earns a PG-13 rating, it'll make it's money back. It's everything the kids want these days. Am I going to see it? Yes. In the theater? NO. But it's worth a look at some point.

Well, I love Robbie and have since I first saw her work in Wolf of Wall Street. But not in this. Not in this kind of stuff. It's just so silly to me. Not my cup of tea so I'll take a hard pass.

I'm watchin'. Can't be as bad as Justice League or Batman vs. Superman feat. Wonder Woman **ralph**

Margo owns the role of Quinn, but the rest isn't really doing anything. Hopefully will look better in the next trailer

Looks fun in parts at least. The Robbie parts, that is.
