Joker may have been one of the hottest movies of 2019, but we know of at least one person who isn’t a fan: Harley Quinn. The Clown Prince of Crime’s former flame has moved on from her supervillain ex-boyfriend to strike out on her own in the upcoming Birds of Prey, and she’s bringing a few friends along with her in the film’s new trailer.
The new Birds of Prey trailer gives us a much more detailed look at the upcoming superhero movie than the previous teaser and trailer, with introductions to the titular team of female antiheroes as well as some good looks at villain Black Mask, played here by an extremely hammy Ewan McGregor. The trailer includes loads of action, with Harley blasting a number of people with her colorful glitter gun. There’s also a (mostly) comedy-focused narration from Harley throughout the trailer, and Margot Robbie is clearly having a blast with her ridiculous old-timey accent. Overall, the tone of the film looks extremely fun, and will likely appeal to anyone who likes Harley Quinn — especially Robbie’s portrayal of her — but despised Suicide Squad.
Oh, and the trailer also features an extremely realistic-looking hyena (if it’s CGI then it’s damn good CGI) that’s named after “hunky” Bruce Wayne. Check it out below.
You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? ‘Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)’ is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary, and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.
Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) hits theaters on Feb. 7.
