Well folks, we made it through the crazy year that was 2020. Everything is different, but thankfully we still had movies to give us a few distractions and some much-needed laughs at time. But even that was different, we spent less time in a dark theater with a crowd of folks, replacing that experience with our TVs and sound systems at home with numerous streaming services to offer up movies to entertain us. I think I usually average around 70 new movies a year, but sadly this year it was only 42, and that includes even older movies I saw for the first time. And the back catalog of stuff on the various streaming services, I missed out on a bunch of movies too.
And as you can see from the title, we are doing things a little different as well. I had my list down to 11 movies and even after about a week of trying to narrow it down, I couldn’t, so you are getting 10 (+1) this year.
“I’m the one they should be scared of! Not you. Not Mister J. Because I am Harley freaking’ Quinn.”
Warner Bros. has just released the first trailer for Cathy Yan“˜s Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) – yes, that’s the actual title.
The film will see the return of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, who has to join forces with the other dames of Gotham City to protect Cassandra Cain, a young girl, who comes across a diamond belonging to crime lord Black Mask. Check out the full trailer below.
It wasn’t that long ago when the DC Films was paling in comparison to its rival, Marvel Studios. But it has shown a lot of improvement thanks in part to films like Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Shazam.
They hope to continue that trend with Cathy Yan‘s Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) – yes, that’s the actual title of the film starring Margot Robbie. And now Warner Bros. has given us our very first look at the film’s newest poster, which will show how colorfully “fantaboulous” it will be. Check out the poster below.
Production has just wrapped for Birds Of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) – yes, that’s the actual title of the film starring Margot Robbie, who is reprising her DC Expanded Universe role as Harley Quinn. In the upcoming film, Harley Quinn finds herself teaming up with a band of DC female heroes to fight Black Mask (Ewan McGregor). Though details are still limited, this will be the first time that there has been an all-female superhero ensemble from a major studio. Check out the photo from the set here below.
Things for Warner Bros.’ DCEU are looking a lot brighter. Following the successes of films like Wonder Woman and Aquaman, the studio is looking to release more character-driven films rather than episodic pieces that lead up to a larger ensemble effort. It’s an approach they likely should have taken right from the start instead of trying to mimic Marvel’s highly successfully cinematic universe. As such, WB will continue forward with these standalone efforts.
Warner Bros. chief executive Kevin Tsujihara confirmed that this will be the studios’ approach to DCEU films for the foreseeable future. More on the report here below.
