Despite having wrapped filming not too long ago, Warner Bros. has apparently already begun test screening an early cut of Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) which features Margot Robbie reprising her Suicide Squad role.
According to BirthMoviesDeath news editor Scott Wampler, one person who was able to see an early cut raved about the film which features Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey coming together to take on Gotham crime lord Black Mask (Ewan McGregor). The film follows the female superhero team teaming up to protect Cassandra Cain after she comes across a diamond which belongs to Black Mask.
Spoke with someone who says they caught an early test screening of Cathy Yan's BIRDS OF PREY. They *raved* about it. Movie sounds bonkers in the best way possible. Very intriguing.
