What you need to know
- Birds of Prey is now available to buy from the Microsoft Store and other digital storefronts.
- The movie is available much earlier than expected because theaters are closed during the coronavirus pandemic.
- You can pick up Birds of Prey now in 4K for $20 at the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).
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:
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 (opens in new tab), Amazon (opens in new tab), and iTunes (opens in new tab) for $20 in 4K, HD, and standard definition. Note that the movie isn't available everywhere globally, however.

Fun movie. I wouldn't buy it, but it's worth a watch.
Yeah, I definitely laughed hard at a few scenes (particularly the ending). It's worth it mostly to see how Margot Robbie just dominates that character.
