Date: 11th February 2020
Warner Bros. has officially changed the Birds of Prey title in response to the box office woes. The official title of the movie is a bit on the long side with Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020).
The new title, which has already started to spread to movie theater websites like AMC and Regal, is Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey. The movie was only able to bring in $33.2 million domestically over the weekend, which is far below what was originally estimated.
Birds of Prey was never expected to be a box office explosion, but it has been getting good reviews from critics and fans. The R-rating might not be helping matters and it may find Warner Bros. and other studios trying to replicate the Joker success to think twice. It has been rumored that Sony is going after an R-rating for Venom 2, but that could all change in the next few weeks as all eyes are on Birds of Prey.
