Seems we didn't have a thread for this movie, so I decided to make one.
Here are some behind-the-scenes images.
More set photos with Harley, Cass and Doc, a character played by Dana Lee.
When you have a tiny child assassin and you use her for help carrying your shopping.
Well ex child assassin. And when you think about it, it's actually smart. If you're trying to integrate Cass into society, shopping is one way to do it.
I'm just excited we might get to see Harley's Hyenas this movie.
A new set video shows Harley in a stunt with an explosion.
A series of tie-in comics are being published.

So very torn. Enjoyed Margot Robbie's portrayal of HQ, although the Suicide Squad film achieved what no other film ever has by making me realise I was already bored 10 minutes into the exposition laden "here's the dossiers" scene.
But Rosie Perez? Please tell me her character is mute. Please?
No, she's playing Renee Montoya. Which is...strange. Montoya is usually in her thirties, while Perez is in her fifties.

Birds of Prey Budget Reportedly $75 Million, Lowest Of Any DCEU Movie
Not sure if that's good or bad.
Given this is a street level team, a smaller budget sounds reasonable.
Generally speaking, directors often fight for lower budgets in franchise films because it gives them more creative control. Bigger budgets don't necessarily translate to "bigger" movies or notable Special Effect Failures or Bottle Episodes due to No Budget, bigger budgets are often the result of prolonged filming because of extra takes, elaborate reshoots to fix a tentpole film, hiring the most expensive actors possible (whose salary goes up the longer the movie is filming) and all tied in to studio demands rather than being a barometer for quality. The John Wick films are all comparatively low budget movies, but confident direction and streamlined production makes them look and feel much bigger. See also the Deadpool films and Shazam.
I think comic book movies need this kind of mindset as it fosters more creativity and lowers expectations, if a 75 million dollar Birds of Prey opens with 45 million that would be seen as a positive, versus a 150 million dollar movie needing double that amount.
In an interview with Vogue, Margot Robbie has stated that Harley will be less sexualized.
John Wick's director will help with the action scenes.

Doesn't look too bad, though we mostly see Harley.
HD version of the trailer. Although the color correction is off.
I wonder if TSS will explain how she "got over clowns"…
Mind over mayhem...
EDIT: New poster for the movie just popped online.

Cassie Cain is gonna be quirky comedy relief isn't she? :(
I'm really not feeling the overall tone and vibe of the movie. It doesn't help that Harley is the ONLY character that has been established, yeah there are a few other women but we've literally seen nothing of them individually besides some generic poses. Suicide Squad at least felt like an ensemble, and Harley is not even considered a regular Birds of Prey character.
