Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey film hitting theaters and to celebrate the occasion, Ella Jay Basco, who played Cassandra Cain in the film, uploaded some never before seen promo images of her and the rest of the girls as their characters. You can view the new images in the gallery.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed that the ‘Scott Pilgrim VS the World‘ cast reunited remotely back in May to do a live-read of the film to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release. In addition, the read-through was to benefit Water for People, a global nonprofit that helps people bring clean water and sanitation solutions to their communities for generations to come. They joined the Mosaic Challenge to benefit the Leadership Council COVID-19 Fund.
Cast members who participated were Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ellen Wong, Mark Webber, Alison Pill, Satya Bhabha, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Mae Whitman, Brandon Routh, and Jason Schwartzman. They were joined by director/writer Edgar Wright, co-writer Michael Bacall and creator of the graphic novels, Bryan Lee O’Malley. EW hasn’t announced when they’ll release the script read-through with the cast, but most likely it’ll be released some time in August since the film originally came out on August 13, 2010.
And in case you missed it, it was previously announced by Edgar Wright that the film will be back in theaters.
In other news, it was also announced that Mary and the cast of Birds of Prey were nominated for a Hollywood Critics Choice Awards. In total, the film has six nominations and they are as follows:
–Best Picture –Best Actress (Margot Robbie) – Supporting Actress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) – Supporting Actor (Ewan McGregor) –Adapted Screenplay –Best Director (Cathy Yan).
The winners of the HCA Midseason Awards will be revealed on July 3, 2020.
Update: Mary did not win.
I have added over 300+ screen caps of Mary as Helena Bertinelli/Huntress in Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn film. I will try adding more caps of the extras throughout the next couple of days. You can view all the pics in the gallery.
I have added a couple of new (but a few days old) candids of Mary in New York before the COVID-19 pandemic halted everything, and some new/old candids of her recently in Los Angeles with Ewan. You can view them all in the gallery or by clicking one of the thumbnail sets below:

Warner Bros. has released a new video featuring the cast of Birds of Prey, director Cathy Yan and screenwriter Christina Hodson.

There are two brand new photo shoots I have added into the gallery that Mary did to promote her new film Birds of Prey. The first one is from Entertainment Weekly’s Around the Table, where a film cast get together and discuss their movie over a meal. You can see that photo by clicking the thumbnail below and viewing the entire video interview below:
Secondly, Mary has a new photo shoot with WhoWhatWear. Some of the photos are below and some highlights from the interview. Be sure to click the link above to read it in full:
Do you remember when you got the call to come in for this project? What was your initial reaction?
It piqued my interest because it was so female-led. Margot Robbie, the fact that she was starring in it, because I really respect her as an actress, but also the fact that she was producing, I thought was really interesting. I went and watched Cathy Yan’s first film, which I loved, so I really wanted to meet her and talk to her about it. I was really curious about Birds of Prey from the get-go, more so than I think other films in this genre, because I think I thought, Oh, you sort of know what to expect, whereas this was something new to me. I was excited to meet all these women who are strong and interesting and unique.
What was your fitness regimen preparing for this role?
You know, thankfully they didn’t put us on any particular fitness regimen other than training for the roles, which was what do you need to know in order to play this character? What do you need to be able to do? Sometimes I was on my own, sometimes I was with the other girls, but we just had a big warehouse and trained with the stunt team for several months, did a lot of jujitsu, various kinds of martial arts, a lot of drills that would sort of slowly build into choreography over time, so it was really fun. I really loved it. I love working with stunt people because I find them to be just incredible people and so supportive and sweet, and their work ethic is incredible, and obviously their talent is unimaginable. I always find it really inspiring just to be around stunt people. I feel really lucky to get the opportunity to do that.
Below are some newer Birds of Prey interviews Mary and the rest of the cast did as part of their press junket to promote the film. Enjoy!
