Birds of Prey: Birds of a Feather (9 minutes):

Actress Margot Robbie indicates that Harley Quinn never left her, but was always with her. In this way, it was easy for him to play her again, since the actress loves to spend her time and energy trying to understand the DC Comics antiheroine.

Screenwriter Christina Hodson says she met Margot Robbie in the summer of 2015, and they hit it off immediately. The actress confessed that she wanted to make an adult film centered on Harley Quinn and her friends. Regarding the screenwriter, the leading actress ensures that she managed to capture the essence of the DC character, as well as capture the tone and spirit of the characters perfectly.

After showing us images of how much fun they had during filming, director Cathy Yan confesses that she did not think she could make this movie, because she only had one feature film behind her. But when he read the script, he asserts that "it was love at first sight."

Margot Robbie comments that there were more women in front of and behind the cameras than in any of her other films. In relation to the action, the filmmaker states that it is fun, but also real, where each woman has a different style, and she wanted to maintain that. And he also loved working with Jonathan Eusebio, stunt coordinator, doing an incredible job with the guys from 87eleven; and showing the different fighting styles of the protagonists and how hard the actresses trained to achieve it.

Birds of Prey: 90% of negative reviews are from men

Romanesque (5 minutes):

Screenwriter Christina Hodson explains that Roman Sionis is a very funny character, so she had a great time collecting everything that was about him in the comics and giving them a fresh approach. They define him as an unconventional villain, who suffers, who wants to be loved, an absolute narcissist and a rich kid who has never lacked for anything. For his part, Ewan McGregor says that his character has been thrown out of his wealthy family and is tormented for that reason. For the director, the actor is perfect for bringing charm and humor to the role, but also vulnerability. To this, Margot Robbie adds that he is an excellent villain, the Scottish actor making risky and unexpected decisions to outline his character.

A Love, Skate Relationship (5 minutes):

Margot Robbie explains that in the New 52 comic there's a roller derby fight, and she loves that comic, so she kept saying there had to be a roller derby in the movie. And in that scene, all the skaters except the actress are skating professionals. Thus, the actress tells how she prepared for the scene, underestimating it because she had already skated in Yo. Tonya; but he had to train and learn a lot of tricks to shoot the sequence.

Grime and Crime (11 minutes):

In this video they delve into the production design of the film, showing us the different settings that appear in Birds of Prey and that represent the city of Gotham; being in charge of K.K. Barret, who they say has managed to add a great dimension to the story with his talent, being very imaginative, collaborative and creative. For the film, they decided to show a different face to the usual Gotham in movies starring Batman. As it was, they had more colorful and surreal settings; but they also created bright, irreverent and dirty places, with exaggerated pop aesthetics. They especially show us how they designed the abandoned fair.

Sanity is Sooo Last Season (8 minutes):

Costume designer Erin Benach explains that they wanted a different superhero, someone people could relate to. The director explains that Erin Benach's work has been executed from the female gaze, creating clothes that women would wear in real life on a daily basis. The cast adds that the clothing they have made is cane and brings something new to the genre. They also wanted to explore Harley Quinn more, with multiple dresses and outfits, totally original, fun and that in many it is clear that she has created them herself, with her own very particular style. While with The Huntress they were looking for something that would be useful and comfortable for their tactical skills. On the other hand, for Canario Negro they decided to bring a vintage touch, while with Black Mask they sought to focus their ego on their clothes, with striking costumes and with their initials engraved on each garment they saw.

Wild Nerds (6 minutes):

Cathy Yan's cue for visual effects was to get as close to reality as possible. Having no superpowers, her goal was to focus on Harley Quinn's unique and quirky personality when designing the special effects. And one of the biggest challenges was shooting the scenes in which the hyena appears. For the recording, they used a German shepherd, who was later transformed into the hyena Bruce using CGI.

This is how they did the hyena in the movie Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey

It also tells how they prepared and shot the explosion at the beginning of the film, and how they added special and digital effects; as well as the recreation of the Black Canary scream and its evolution throughout the pre-production, production and post-production phase, by the digital effects studio WETA.

Gag Reel (2 minutes):

Dances, poses, antics, little noises, grimaces, falls, improvisations, props that fail, words that choke, swears and laughter, lots of laughter, are part of the film's reel of outtakes.

Finally, we hope you enjoy buying Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn), now available to take home on Blu-ray (basic edition, steelbook and Ultra HD) and DVD; as well as in rent and digital sale. And so you can see it as many times as you want, both in its original version and dubbed into Spanish.
