Margot Robbie Reminds Everyone She’s The Baddest Chick On The Planet In The Insane ‘Birds Of Prey’ Trailer
In case you had forgotten, Margot Robbie is likely the baddest bitch in Hollywood and this first trailer for Birds Of Prey serves as the perfect reminder of that fact, as they’ve built an entire film franchise — Suicide Squad, Birds Of Prey, and 2021’s The Suicide Squad — around her stardom.
While 2016’s Suicide Squad was an unmitigated disaster, it did launch Warner Bros’ highly bankable portrayal of Harley Quinn, which is a character Robbie will play twice in the next two years: first in Birds Of Prey then in 2021’s The Suicide Squad.
And seriously, who else in Hollywood could shoulder a franchise like this all on their own? There are few, if any, actresses with that sort of cache — except for Margot Robbie.
After all, who wouldn’t want to watch Robbie get dressed up in sexy costumes and clown makeup and raise all sorts hell for two hours (which is essentially what most girlfriends do anyway despite being only about 1/807th as hot as Margot)? Warner Bros. is banking on the fact that every Bro loves her and every woman wants to be her — and it’s working.
Luckily for everyone who loves comics and movies, it appears that Jared Leto’s abysmal portrayal of the Clown Prince of Crime will not be making a movie-ruining appearance in Birds Of Prey — which is yet another wise decision by Warner Bros., who has quietly put together a solid string of films in the last couple of years.
Helmed by relatively unknown director Cathy Yan, Birds Of Prey stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, and Ewan McGregor as Black Mask.
Robbie will then reprise her role as Harley Quinn in James Gunn’s (Guardians of the Galaxy) Suicide Squad reboot, which is set to be released in 2021.
Birds Of Prey will hit theaters in the United States on Friday, February 7, 2020.
