Its good, first one of these DCEU movies that I really enjoyed even though here and there you can see things poured in and scenes starting out of the blue. I do think the legs on this one will be good.

Compared to the trailers the movie is still in VERY dark settings (not sure why), the trailer made it look much more brighter somehow. Maybe it was my screening only. When someone watches it do let me know how they felt on the brightness compared to the scenes in the trailer.

PS around here don't seem great but I'm not concerned. Been impressed more than once with girl power and the superhero set.

This will do over/under 70m OW. Buzz seems much better than Shazam, it has to do significantly better than that to not be a disappointment.

The DCEU is on a great run.
Wonder Woman, Shazam, Joker, maybe Harley Quinn.
Is there a Kevin Feige equivalent behind it all?

Walter Hamada, if I've heard correctly.

There's just no way. Would love to be wrong though. I'll be happy with over 50.

Warner Bros seem to have dropped the ball big time with this. Horrible marketing and meh ticket sales. I am seeing 4.5m previews and high 30's to low 40's OW. That would be horrible considering it has very good reviews and Harley was seen in Suicide Squad(may be meh WOM of that movie did this in as well).

:(

I'll take 40m opening at this point lol

If the opening is soft I can't see it dropping hard next weekend but who knows. WoM won't be bad so hopefully it goes up. I can't believe this is opening to less than Shazam in a dead market.

I think the bad taste of Suicide Squad might have a hand in this movie doing subdued numbers. From trailers it looks like Harley is starting a new female suicide squad.

I don't know if general audiences know that this is a SUICIDE SQUAD spin-off...

I think the lackluster response (in international markets so far) has more to do with the fact (with the exception of JOKER of course) that the last DC movies like WONDER WOMAN, AQUAMAN and SHAZAM looked like a fun time at the movies. BIRDS OF PREY looks more like over-the-top bubblegum... (and now that I think of it, is there any scene in the trailer in broad daylight?).

If there's a What-Went-Wrong thread this would be my answer....

Yeah my theater was fairly empty last night. Not expecting a standout preview number. The film will need to be leggy (ie 3x multiplier) to get to 150m+ probably.

A thing I pointed out on BOT is that DC is going to now inherently struggle with "lesser" character movies. Because there is no connected universe, there isn't some obligation for fans to see these movies. Also, targeting the film at teen audiences, and making the film R probably didn't help, but plenty of films get over that. Maybe female audiences under 18 make up a small portion of that potential audience, as it seems like parents are more ok with letting their younger boys be exposed to adult subjects rather than their girls.

Is Harley a lesser character though? She’s probably the third most popular character in the Batverse which makes her more known than many of the heroes.

Post Re: Birds of Prey (&theFantabulousEmancipationofOneHarleyQui
its looking worse than yesterday. I wonder how low this can go. It could miss 30m if its frontloaded and early signs are not great.

WB basically dumped this movie with horrible marketing. Plus released this in south east asia at the height of corona virus scare. How stupid can they be.

I hope this kills any future Harley stand alone movies. They should rather use her in a Batman movie.

Less than Dark Phoenix makes absolutely no sense. Idk if it was the mismanagement of the movie overall (first trailer in October, late review embargo despite good initial reactions) but man.

Holy shit if this actually misses $30M OW. I never would have expected that, but that just goes to show you how much Warner Bros botched the marketing for this movie on top of the idiotic decision for them to hide the reviews.

WB is mostly to blame here, though the R-rating didn't help. Next weekend is guaranteed to be solid for the BO, so perhaps there's an element of people holding onto some funds.
