Things are blowing up in the DC Universe at the moment, not only do we have the impending release of Joker, but now the first official trailer for Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) has arrived, and the crazy is going to be dialled up to 11 here.
Watch the wild new trailer for Birds of Prey below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Since the events of Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn has left the Joker. 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.
Picking up after the events of Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey follows Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) as she sets out to establish her own empire in Gotham City and this in turn leads her to a run in with brutal mob boss Black Mask (Ewan McGregor). Teaming up with vigilantes Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Harley becomes the guardian angel to a young girl named Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) and things are about to blow up really quickly from here.
In relation to its visual scope, Birds Of Prey is simply gorgeous to look at and its neon colour pallette and high contrast photography pulls you into the fantasy world of Gotham City that exists in the shadows. Director Cathy Yan really amped up the action as well, and there’s plenty of wicked stunt pieces that will thoroughly thrill longtime DC fans.
Added to the setting and action is a really cool ‘girl gang’ movie, and with it’s pulp fiction, punk rock stylings, and hard R sensibilities you can be sure that Birds of Prey is going to be a real riot.
Birds of Prey has long been star Margot Robbie’s passion project, and damn does she impress here. This is a seriously inventive and well thought out project and I’m really excited to see an R-rated edge brought to the DC Universe, especially with a project that looks this exciting.
Get ready to lose your mind and go totally loco, when Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) arrives in cinemas on February 6, 2020.
