Marketing for the upcoming Birds of Prey has been rampant in several regions as the film nears its worldwide release. Warner Bros. has also released a new batch of hi-res stills from the film featuring Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and several others.
The images offer a teasing look at some of Harley Quinn’s attires from the film. Adding to that, there are also stills of Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and more. You can check it out below.
The R-rated DC film recently premiered in Mexico and reactions so far have mostly been positive. Many have applauded the film’s violence, comedy and have compared it to the likes of a Quentin Tarantino movie. That compliment wouldn’t come as a surprise since the director had earlier hinted that film has borrowed elements from Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Akira Kurosawa’s classic Rashomon.
“Yeah, I mean, there’s a lot of influences on the film. I mean, the way that I sort of talked about the structure of the film is a bit like Pulp Fiction meets Rashomon. So it’s an unconventional structure. For me, there’s a lot of my favorite filmmakers that have influences on this film, so like Tarantino, obviously. The Professional for sure, especially the relationship between Harley and Cass. We actually have a few like, oh I guess I would say like odes to certain films in the movie. Watch out for that. And then also just – we also, visually, I think very much influenced by A Clockwork Orange as well.”
The main cast of Birds of Prey was also in Mexico promoting the DC movie. From the looks of it, the film could easily meet its box office predictions of opening to $50 million on the first weekend.
Birds of Prey reportedly had a production budget of $75 million, making it the least expensive project under the DCEU so far. Unlike other big blockbusters like Aquaman, the studio’s expectations on the R-rated film’s earning would be relatively lesser. The female-centric movie wouldn’t have to make $1 billion to be considered a massive success.
Directed by Cathy Yan, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) hits theaters on February 7.
