‘Birds of Prey’ Producer Sue Kroll on Me Too, Reshoots, and Sequel Possibilities [Interview]

Producer Sue Kroll has been with Birds of Prey from the very beginning. Since it was just an idea in star Margot Robbie‘s head while she was originating her breakout character Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Since director Cathy Yan came to Kroll and fellow producer Bryan Unkeless with a vision of a wild, bombastic, and unabashedly fun girl gang movie. “There was something very raw about it, very visceral,” Kroll said of the sizzle reel that Yan showed to her and Unkeless. That visceral tone was...

The box-office expectations for 'Birds of Prey' were too high and the movie could still be a win for DC and Warner Bros.

"Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)" opened below studio and analyst expectations over the weekend with $33 million. But the movie has made $81 million globally and had a production budget of $84.5 million. "Birds of Prey" is rated R and stars a cast of unknown characters (besides Harley Quinn), so expectations should better reflect that. The movie if a spinoff of "Suicide Squad," which has a "rotten" 59% Rotten Tomatoes audience score and could have also held...

‘Birds of Prey’ Gets a New Title in Theaters After Underperforming at the Box Office

Birds of Prey may have topped the box office last weekend, but it opened far lower than box office analysts predicted. Even the expectations from Warner Bros. Pictures were nearly $13 million higher than what the movie actually earned. And it sounds like the studio may have figured out what part of the problem is: the title. After being marketed as simply Birds of Prey, and occasionally by the comically longer title Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), the new t...

‘Birds of Prey’ Director Cathy Yan on Crafting Old-School Action With the ‘John Wick’ Team [Interview]

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a movie bursting with personality. It’s poppy and gritty, slapstick-y and visceral, and most striking of all, it doesn’t confine itself to as many boxes or rules as most comic book movies do. It’s a rare comic book movie with an actual sense of freedom and spontaneity. Behind the boisterous vision is filmmaker Cathy Yan. Before Yan was writing and directing films, she was already sharpening her skills as a storyteller. A gr...

Why ‘Birds of Prey’ Whiffed at the Box Office

After the commercial successes of “Wonder Woman,” “Aquaman” and “Joker,” Warner Bros. had been on a hot streak with its DC Universe. Its latest comic-book offering, “Birds of Prey,” seemed to have all the ingredients necessary to continue that trend in the studio’s attempt to fashion an alternative to Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. But despite […]

‘Birds of Prey’ Writer Christina Hodson on Writing Harley Quinn and How ‘Trainspotting’ Influences Her Writing [Interview]

DC has been a good home to screenwriter Christina Hodson. After writing Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), DC and Warner Bros. hired Hodson to adapt two other comic book properties, including Batgirl. Based on the glowing reception to Birds of Prey, the studio now has another strong voice behind their comic book movies. They haven’t always this much sense of authorship and crystal clear vision. Birds of Prey is a comic book movie that doesn’t overstay its welc...

The Cast of Birds of Prey on the Balance of Bringing Their Comic Counterparts to Life

Birds of Prey’s colorful aesthetic is ripped right out of the world of comics, but the tack the movie takes with its comic book characters treads a fine line between respecting decades worth of stories and, in some cases, bringing new takes to the table. It was an opportunity that, for its stars, meant a chance to…Read more...

‘Birds of Prey’ Video Review – A Fresh, Action-Packed Take on a Classic DC Character

Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) has style to spare. The new film features a quirky and colorful Gotham, a memorable cast of characters, and some pretty impressive hand-to-hand combat. All of it is tied together by Margot Robbie, who commits to this version of Harley Quinn with a zaniness and intensity that is irresistible. Even in moments when the movie doesn’t quite work, you can still feel the love and care that was put into bringing these char...

'Birds of Prey' disappoints at the box office, bringing in only $33.2 million its opening weekend

Warner Bros.' "Birds of Prey" won the domestic box office, but with a soft $33.2 million. The studio projected a $45 million opening (about half of its production budget), while industry projections were around $50 million to $55 million. It's a disappointing opening for the DC Comics movie, which has a fresh Rotten Tomatoes score of 81%. Its R rating may have kept away teen girls who love the movie's lead, Harley Quinn.
