The CinemaScore grade of Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey has been revealed.
Audiences seem to be reacting decently to Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey, which opened this weekend to positive reviews. With a CinemaScore of B+, Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey is on par with Suicide Squad and Justice League. The only film in the DCEU to get a lower CinemaScore than B+ is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which received a B by audiences back in 2016. The films with the highest CinemaScore in the DC Extended Universe are Shazam! and Wonder Woman, which both hold an A.
Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey is by far the DCEU’s most unique film, which is perhaps why audiences were a bit apprehensive to embrace it this weekend. The DCEU’s first R-Rated film, Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey was also the first female-driven team project set within the superhero franchise. Focusing on the ever-popular Harley Quinn played by Margot Robbie, the film embraced the wacky and chaotic nature of the character.
The CinemaScore tool has been an industry staple as it analyzes how those on opening night enjoy a film when it is at the peak of its popularity. With a CinemaScore of B+, Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey has been received well by critics for being a different take on the DCEU. Fans, on the other hand, have been a bit mixed on the film, but they’ve praised the phenomenal action sequences and Margot Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn. Even if Birds of Prey doesn’t end up being the success that Margot Robbie and Warner Bros. want, they’ll always be able to bank on next year’s The Suicide Squad, which sees Margot Robbie returning to the role of Harley Quinn.

Here is the official synopsis for Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey:
“You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.”
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script penned by Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Ewan McGregor as Black Mask, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Ali Wong, Robert Catrini, and Michael Masini have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
Birds of Prey is now playing in theaters.
