Total Film Magazine Scans

Earlier this week, I mentioned that the Birds of Prey cast was going to be interviewed for the upcoming film in Total Film Magazine and now thanks to Best Of Jurnee, I have added those scans into the gallery.

 

Margot’s take on Harley’s thoughts towards Mary’s character Huntress:

She thinks Huntress is an absolute badass, because anybody who can kill that effectively and be such a mess in the head with all that childhood trauma–that’s thrilling to Harley, so she loves Huntress.

Mary on working with Margot:

She’s incredibly smart and savvy. She has a real understanding of the whole picture. It’s not like, ‘this is the Harley show, and what’s going on with Harley.’ She’s thinking about every character, and every story beat, and if it’s working or not.

Mary on her Huntress costume:

I felt so cool. I felt totally empowered and feminine. But also, I was able to move. I was able to carry weapons. I was able to do other things that the Huntress could actually be doing. And so that felt great. There was never a moment where I was like, ‘I can’t do this stunt because my pants are too tight.

‘Birds of Prey’ Cast Cover Total Film Magazine

Total Film Magazine’s upcoming issue features the cast of Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on their latest cover and you can view the HQ images in the gallery! Check back this Friday for the full interview with the cast (including Mary!!) and more photos!

Speaking to the magazine, Margot Robbie (who plays Harley Quinn), explains how BoP doesn’t tie in to 2016’s Suicide Squad:

“It’s very much like the comic books where you pick up in a totally different place, and it doesn’t directly link to what happened before,” Robbie tells our sister publication Total Film magazine . “But at the same time it’s not such a leap that you’re like, ‘Oh, what’s going on?!'”

Director Cathy Yan adds that Birds of Prey is “definitely a standalone movie” with fleeting connections to Suicide Squad, such as Harley having the same mallet. “It was really fun to create our own movie, and to not feel like it had to be a sequel or a continuation of Suicide Squad,” she says.

As for if Birds will have a  connection to the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel set for 2021, Margot said this:

“Tonally, David Ayer’s world looks different to [Birds’] world, which will look different to James’s world,” she says. “So, no, there’s not a direct connection. But like the comics, it doesn’t cancel out one or the other.”

Margot also said she really enjoyed working with her female co-stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez, Ella Jay Basco and [director] Cathy Yan:

We bonded in a different way. I think that there was an immediate understanding between the women. We could all recognise that, ‘This is sick. We’re the chicks, and we get to do this shit. This is awesome.’”

That ready-made connection may be crucial to the movie’s success, and it’s one Robbie said was already present early on: “We didn’t really need to work at finding a bond, because we kind of all clicked to begin with. And we also did chemistry reads beforehand. So we all bounced off each other quickly and easily.”

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) hits theaters on February 7, 2020.

Latest ‘Birds of Prey’ Trailer and News

A couple of news items have been released ever since Mary along with the Birds of Prey cast hit CCXP in Brazil last week. First up (and most importantly), yesterday at last night’s video game awards, a TV spot was shown for the upcoming film that hits theaters on February 7 and you can watch that clip below:

Also, Margot Robbie spoke with Collider on how the film came to be while on the set of 2016’s Suicide Squad:

“Harley does so much better when she has people to play with.’ I kept thinking that in real life I had such a girl gang, like my group of girlfriends, and I just want Harley to have a girl gang. It really started with Huntress. I just loved Huntress, and with my initial pitch on the story, I said I wanted to keep it quite contained, get no bigger, and no world-ending stakes. Like the stakes were as big as perhaps mafia level or gang level. That’s when I started reading a lot of Huntress comics, obviously coming from a mafia family, and found her story. Plus, I always gravitate… well, not always, but I do often gravitate towards a revenge story because it is so straight forward, but you are so clearly motivated.”

In other news, Birds of Prey is IMDB’s top choice for the most anticipated film of 2020 according to The Wrap.

New ‘Birds of Prey’ Banners; BoP Spin-offs Possible

Apologies for the lack of updates everyone! Been busy, but I’ll try to update the site more often. First of all, Mary is currently in Japan filming her new action film KATE for Netflix. Aside from wrapping up in early December, I have no new info on the project…for the time being. Now onto the good stuff!

WB has recently released two new banners promoting Birds of Prey and they have been uploaded to the gallery. Remember, next month, Mary along with the rest of the cast will be attending CCXP in Brazil so a new trailer is likely to drop then so stay tuned!

In related news, Variety is reporting that should the upcoming Batman film with Robert Pattinson prove to be successful, key cast members from Birds of Prey and The Batman have contract options to appear in sequels and standalone films. Additionally, DC’s Joker had an ‘R’ rating and in the case of “Birds of Prey,” the film won’t be in the pitch-black, grim vein of “Joker.” Insiders describe the film has a more humorous, spirited, girl gang adventure, albeit not one for younger children. A series of recent reshoots dramatically improved test screening results and the studio is confident “Birds of Prey” will be a hit when it opens in February.
