‘Birds Of Prey’ Director Cathy Yan Praises Film’s Early Digital Release As New Trailer Drops

Audiences, for whatever reason, missed out on Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey when it opened earlier this year. That’s fine. Whatever. You’re why we can’t have nice things. However, a chance to rectify this egregious oversight arrives on March 24th with the film’s early release on digital. Warner Bros. made the move in light of the coronavirus pandemic that has closed theaters nationwide, and now a new trailer hypes Harley Quinn’s fantabulous emancipation.

A big cheerleader for this move before it ever happened was director Cathy Yan. With Warner Bros.’ decision, she was first to thank the fans and to encourage people to give the Suicide Squad spinoff a shot.  I would wholeheartedly agree. Birds of Prey is a must-watch deserving of finding a new audience in the home release market.
