HARLEY QUINN: BIRDS OF PREY "Honest Trailer" Pokes Fun At The Lack Of Team-Up Action
Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey didn't really give much screentime to, well, the Birds of Prey, and this newly released "Honest Trailer" for the DC Comics adaptation doesn't hold back in pointing that out...
Originally titled Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), Warner Bros.' latest DC Comics adaptation has come under fire from fans for not spending enough time to focusing on that team. In fact, the spotlight being on Harley Quinn in a movie that was billed as a "girl gang" team-up has been blamed by many for why it underperformed financially.
That's just one of the points the "Honest Trailers" team focus on in this tongue in cheek look at the newly named Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey, and they make a lot of very valid observations!
The R-Rating also proves to be an issue for them, as does the absence of Jared Leto's Joker believe it or not. In fairness, though, the film definitely would have benefited from him making a physical appearance here rather than just being a stand-in and someone Harley talked about.
On the plus side, Ewan McGregor's Ronan Sionis/Black Mask receives a fair bit of praise!
Love it or hate it, Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey certainly got fans talking, and there's still a lot of excitement surrounding her return in James Gunn's The Suicide Squad next year.
