Harley Narrates Her Emancipation in New Birds of Prey Trailer

Look, there’s a lot I love about this trailer and some things I don’t think I will. Whatever the case, one thing seems really, really clear. Birds of Prey is going to be one hell of a good time to watch.

And to be clear, there’s a lot of really fun things about this trailer. Harley’s cocaine power up alone makes me want to watch this movie. We finally see Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask wearing a black mask. Black Canary does a Canary scream. I absolutely love the line Harley has about revenge. It’s easy to forget that she was a psychologist before all this.

Overall, though, this movie looks fun for the same reason it has always looked fun. It’s Margot Robbie absolutely nailing the Harley Quinn character and having a blast doing so alongside a great cast of women as the actual birds in the Birds of Prey. The action looks freaking terrific and the effects match them. You can tell John Wick director Chad Stahelski was involved in the action scenes just by how crisp and good they look.

There’s a part of me that is highly worried and expecting to be disappointed by this version of Cassandra Cain. If we actually get a scene of Harley blowing the Joker up, as suggested in this trailer, I can easily forgive it. And come on, Harley has a hyena!

Birds of Prey looks to have embraced the absurd and I’m happy, because the movie looks like an absolute blast. Here’s hoping it proves as entertaining as I think when it hits theaters in February.
