If you thought the first Birds of Prey trailer was fun, wait until ya getta loada this. Warner Bros. has released its final trailer for its upcoming Harley Quinn-powered vehicle, and all signs point to a foul-mouthed, fourth-wall-breaking freakfest on par with the Deadpool movies.
Once again, Harley’s (Margot Robbie) doing the narrating. Things kick off when our irreverent Clown Princess of Crime shoots up a police station, only to pull a *Record Scratch*, *Freeze Frame*, Yep-that’s-me-I-bet-you’re-wondering-how-I-got-here routine. Rewinding, she gives us a little history lesson on her break-up with the Joker: a nice little montage involving acrobatics out of a speeding truck, explosions, and tearful mouthfuls of Easy Cheese. But now that she’s fully emancipated herself from Mistah J, she’s learned that a lot of people want her dead—namely, Black Mask (Ewan McGregor).
Turns out, he’s after multiple others: Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), who betrayed him; Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who killed his BFF; Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), who’s building a case against him; and Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), who robbed him. Assembling a team to avoid “dying very unpleasant deaths,” the titular Birds of Prey embark on a psychedelic journey through the criminal underworld involving accidental coke binges, roller derby, more explosions, hyena baths, carnival-set chase scenes, Marilyn Monroe fantasies, and plenty of ultraviolence.
Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn arrives in theaters February 7, 2020.
