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.
