Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) recently underwent reshoots, which apparently improved audiences' reaction to the film.
According to Variety, the positive reactions the reshoots are getting is leaving Warner Bros. confident that the film will be well received by critics and fans alike. This is good news for the studio, considering Harley Quinn's last outing, Suicide Squad, was panned by both groups upon its release.
The film is described as a "humorous, spirited, girl gang adventure." While it won't be as dark or violent as Joker, the film will still take a more mature tone than other DC films such as Aquaman and Shazam.
Warner Bros. is on a bit of hot streak with their DC properties. There last three releases -- Aquaman, Shazam and Joker -- were financial and critical success. Aquaman and Joker each grossed over $1 billion, and the latter is expected to win big this coming award season.
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) stars Margot Robbie, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez, Ewan McGregor, Steven Williams, Derek Wilson, Dana Lee, Francois Chau, Charlene Amoia, Chris Messina and Matthew Willig. The film is scheduled for release on Feb. 7, 2020.
