Pictures has made a decision to try something new post-release.
The film's original mouthful of a title, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), may have been great at generating headlines when it was first announced, but it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.
Regarding whether or not the film will lose money, various reports are offering the film needs to bring in as much as $300 million to break even or at least $250 million.
Back in 2013 saw Warner Bros. take a similar approach with the Tom Cruise Edge of Tomorrow movie, which was originally titled after the novel it adapted, All You Need Is Kill, but WB changed it citing negative chatter about the word "Kill" in the title. Not really. It's a Harley Quinn movie through and through with the Birds of Prey (Jurnee Smollet-Bell's Black Canary, Mary Elizabeth Winstead's Huntress, and Rosie Perez's Renee Montoya) as a supporting cast.
Overall, Birds of Prey is an enjoyable comic book movie that features a great cast of characters and decent action.
This is because she befriends a young thief girl named Cassandra Cain who has stolen a very important diamond.
Directed by Yan (Dead Pigs) from a script by Christina Hodson (Bumblebee), the film is based on characters from DC. Robbie also produced, alongside Bryan Unkeless and Sue Kroll. The film's executive producers are Walter Hamada, Galen Vaisman, Geoff Johns, Hans Ritter and David Ayer.
Birds of Prey, which cost $80 million before accounting for global marketing and distribution fees, could rebound over coming weeks since there's not much direct competition.
