A name change for a title … too confusing
Everything was ready to make box. Harley Quinn is a tremendously known character from DC universe, the advances of the tape had created a lot of expectation and the specialized critics valued Birds of prey (and the fabulous emancipation of Harley Quinn) in a very positive way. However, the reception at the box office has been very different than expected.
In its first weekend in movie theaters (that is, the past days 7, 8 and 9 February), the film has managed to raise only 33 million dollars In U.S.A. At first it may seem like a huge amount, but surely your perspective changes when we tell you that the estimates for its debut were around 55 million dollars.
What went wrong? That’s what Warner has been wondering these days. And it seems they have found the problem (or so they think): your title. The long name of Birds of prey (and the fabulous emancipation of Harley Quinn) -in English Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)– It does not help precisely that the general public stays with the important thing and it is the fact that the movie is about Harley Quinn, so the producer has not wanted to wait any longer and has quickly decided to change it for this next weekend.
Thus, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) it happens in this way to be officially called Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey and so it is already selling in the US. Undoubtedly, the new baptism throws a much more direct, concise and above all message that better explains to the viewer what the movie is about, focusing attention on the name of the main character.
Not only that: in The verge They point out that this will make it easier for the user to even search for the movie when they want to buy tickets to the cinema on a website. Everything in the end is much simpler.
As well indicated in Superhero Blog, it seems that in UK at the moment no record has been moved. Neither Cinesa nor Yelmo or Unión Cine Ciudad have still changed the title of the film although it would not surprise us that it will soon also be called Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey. We will see without it get up the flight.
Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey, the big bet of DC
After seeing her as a real madwoman in The suicide squad, Harley Quinn acquires his own leading role in this new film. In it we will see what his life is like after separating from Joker and we will know the curious group that forms with other heroines (Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya) to save a girl (Cassandra Cain) from the hands of the villain Black Mask – to which Ewan McGregor himself gives life.
A movie full of action, very entertaining moments and with a very choral cast, in which Margot Robbie She is the undisputed queen of the screen, with a paper that comes as a ring to her finger.
The film premiered this weekend in much of the world and has arrived with very high expectations – hence its last minute change; Here there is little room for failure.
Have you seen her yet? What do you think?
