The larger than life characters associated with any fiction story always leave a permanent impression of the viewer’s mind which lasts forever. Be it the Batman series, the Superman series or the latest Joker stories, superheroes and fiction characters always influence and sometimes even dominate the psychology the humans. We always aspire to be like them or at least see them in action. Therefore, fiction stories and fiction films are undoubtedly the one most popular variant in the world today. The world of cinema has already witnessed the huge success of several such movies and characters. The Bird Of Prey is surely going to be another addition to this list of success stories. Here is all that you would need to know about the most awaited film of the coming year, The Birds of Prey.
Developing scripts from comic series and books is a common practice in Hollywood. The tinsel town has produced several milestone movies from books, novels, and comic books already registering iconic success stories in the box office. Popular stories generally pay off well, and Birds of Prey seem to be no exception to the trend. Though is not a comic series as popular as The Bat Family or the Justice League, with a certain amount of introduction, one can catch up with the spirit of the story easily. The movie is due to hit the box office early next year and therefore, you have enough time to get acquainted with the plot and the characters that shape up the whole story. If you are a movie buff and have been waiting for this action-packed movie to hit the floors, do a little homework, and you will be all in.
The Official Name
Not all the movies have their release names identical to the production names or the initial names. The finalization of the title of the movie is itself a mammoth task. Since the name casts the initial charisma on the target audience; the same has to be kept meticulously not wasting even a single point of interest. So it has been for the Birds of Prey as well. Initially, the production team decided to name it as The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn. Yes, a little too descriptive indeed. Also, it can be said to be a mouthful one.
Moreover, the essence of the fiction stories lies in a little mystery surrounding it which goes missing when such an elaborate title is used. Hence the precise one, Birds of Prey. It perfectly renders the mystery involved and the appeal required for catching the attention of the audience.
The release date of any movie is the next most decisive part of the entire production process. The right placement of the release dates often holds the key to the success of the movie at the box offices. A movie released on a misjudged or an ill-judged date can result in performing at a lower level than expected or than its potential. Therefore, choosing the right date for release for any movie is critical.
Moreover, the release date of a movie should be set in such a way that it does not have to compete with another of its genre. Two movies released at the same time meant for a similar audience often lose business owing to shared watching. Especially when it comes to a movie like Birds of Prey that accounts for substantial production cost and is expected to run well in the box office, dates are critical. The production house and the marketing team together have decided to let the movie set foot on the American screens on 7th February 2020. Since Doctor Sleep is meant to be released in the month of January 2020, the marketing team of Birds of Prey suggested the release dates be in February to minimize the competition.
Birds of Prey Rating
The American Film Rating system entitles every movie with a rating that is suitable according to its content. The standard rating that most of the movies manage to get hold to is PG 13. This standard signifies that children under 13 should watch the movies under strict parental vigilance. Similarly, the rating-R means that the children under the age of 17 would need their parents to be there while watching the movie as some of the content shown may be inappropriate for the tender age. As for most of the DCEU movies that have been released under the first variety, Birds of Prey will set a new path for DCEU as it is about to come out with the R-rating. Logan and Fox’s Deadpool are the other two comic book movies that had an R Rating and did well in the box office. Once, Birds of Prey get released, it is expected to join the same trend.
The shooting location of any movie is a critical part as far as the overall appeal on the onscreen content is concerned. The Birds of Prey got shot in Los Angeles, California. The shooting started in the month of January 2019. Atlanta, Georgia, and Savannah are some other places where the shooting was expected to be held but owing to the tax credit issues the production unit decided to keep the schedules restricted with LA. The graphic support has efficiently managed to set the backgrounds distinctly for the entire picture as and when required.
As far as the casting is concerned, Birds of Prey can be considered as a star-studded one. Margot Robbie, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez, Ella Jay Basco, Chris Messina, Ewan McGregor, and Ali Wong are some of the primary casts of the movie. Directed by Cathy Yan, the screenplay has been written by Christina Hodson for this movie.
