The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to the closure of movie theater chains around the world, forcing the hands of studios to release their movies digitally much earlier than normal. In some cases, this means movies that were still in the middle of their theater runs are now available to watch at home. The latest to get this treatment is Birds of Prey: : And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn.
As DC and Warner Bros.' follow-up to Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey once again follows the chaotic Harley Quinn, but now she's teamed up with Huntress, Canary and Renee Montoya for a new tale. From the synopsis:
You ever hear the one about the cop, the blonde, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds Of Prey And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When one of Gotham's most sinister villains, Roman Sionis, and his sadistic right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city's wicked underbelly is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Canary and Renee Montoya's paths collide and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.
Birds of Prey only just hit theaters in February, so its release in digital stores is super early by normal standards. You can pick the movie up now at Microsoft, Amazon, and iTunes for $20 in 4K, HD, and standard definition. Note that the movie isn't available everywhere globally, however.
Birds of Prey picks things up with Harley Quinn after the events of Suicide Squad, seeing her team up Huntress, Canary, and Renee Montoya to take on a new threat.
