Heads will roll! The first teaser trailer for ‘Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)’ has surfaced online, although it was not officially released by Warner Brothers. The source of the clip appears to be somewhere in Ukraine, based on the language. Even Margot Robbie’s one line of dialogue (the only dialogue in the trailer) is dubbed. It’s very short and cut very quickly, but fans can at least get a glimpse of the “girl gang”– including Mary Elizabeth Winstead as The Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary– in action. The clip is appropriately set to the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Heads Will Roll.” (Heads may indeed roll if Warner Brothers discovers who leaked this video!)
Check it out:
The cast of ‘Birds of Prey’ also includes Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Ewan McGregor as Roman Sionis/Black Mask, and Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz. Cathy Yan directed, with a script by Christina Hodson.

The film continues the exploits of Harley Quinn, following the events of 2016’s ‘Suicide Squad’. At the end of that film, Harley ran off with her “puddin'” The Joker (Jared Leto), but it seems as though things weren’t so “happily ever after,” as ‘Birds of Prey’ reportedly chronicles her exploits after her leaving him behind. McGregor’s Black Mask is expected to be the movie’s main antagonist, and he is reportedly after something that comes into the possession of young Cassandra Cain (Basco). Harley finds herself working with Black Canary, Huntress, and Montoya to protect the girl against the sadistic crime boss.
Warner Brothers was so taken with Robbie’s performance in ‘Suicide Squad’ that it began developing a number of potential sequels for her, and this one made it out of the gate first. But she is also expected to return in ‘The Suicide Squad’ which will be directed by James Gunn and may begin filming later this year or early next.
‘Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is set to open on February 7, 2020.
