The first trailer for “Birds of Prey,” the superhero and villain team-up film starring Margot Robbie, who reprises her role of Harley Quinn from “Suicide Squad,” has arrived.
With the full title “Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn,” director Cathy Yan’s film is a colorful, playful and outrageous take on the superhero genre. And while Quinn usually plays the bad girl, “Birds of Prey” sees her split from the Joker and teams up with a trio of other female superheroes as they fight to save a young girl from an evil crime lord.
“Do you know what a harlequin is? A harlequin’s role is to serve. It’s nothing without a master. No one gives two sh— who we are without that,” Robbie says in the trailer over a shot at a bar. That’s all about to change as she proves she doesn’t need to be in the service of Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask or anyone. “I’m the one they should be scared of. Not you, not Mr. J. Because I’m Harley Frickin’ Quinn!”
“Birds of Prey” boasts an impressive cast that also includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, as well as Ali Wong and Ella Jay Basco.
The first look for the film was a brief teaser of the heroes dancing in something of a rave setting, even teasing a possible Batman cameo.
Christina Hodson wrote the “Birds of Prey” spinoff for Warner Bros. and DC Films based on the “Birds of Prey” comics by Chuck Dixon, Jordan B. Gorfinkel and Greg Land.
“Birds of Prey” is produced by Kroll & Co Entertainment’s Sue Kroll and Clubhouse Pictures’ Bryan Unkeless, as well as Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment.
“Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn” opens in theaters on Feb. 7.
