Birds of Prey Teaser Reveals Harley Quinn’s new Friends

Get a sneak peek at Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie)’s newest friends in this Birds of Prey teaser, which is short but sweet. The new teaser follows this photo that Robbie dropped, showing off her trademark heart tattoo and red lip as everyone’s favorite antihero. Does the photo hint at a more restrained Quinn—at least in terms of her eye shadow? It’s one theory, but we’re guessing by the time Birds of Prey drops, she’ll back to her old, wild ways. This new 19-second video gives us another glimpse of the former psychologist-turned-lovable-psychopath, as well as some very quick glances at her new friends and likely enemies.

Who is CheekySneakyPeeky, the person/entity who dropped this teaser? Our guess is that Cheeky is a part of Birds of Prey‘s proper media campaign—the teaser is polished and the video is clean, not like something ripped and dropped without studio input. It also gives us a feel for the design of the film, which will take its inspiration from Harley Quinn’s colorful costumes and makeup and her overall approach to life. The teaser gives a few of Harley’s new friends a moment or two to pop onscreen while revealing next to nothing about the film itself. It ends with our heroine laughing, dancing, and enjoying a cocktail.

Cathy Yan directs Birds of Prey from a script by rising star Christina Hodson (Bumblebee). Robbie has been the driving force behind the film, and she’s joined by a stellar cast that includes her fellow superheroines Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya. The men include Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz and Ewan McGregor as Black Mask.

Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is currently filming and opens February 7, 2020.
