The Harley Quinn movie, ate it at the box office this weekend

What happened? Harley Quinn is one of DC's most-recognized brands from one of their most-recognized franchises. Why did this movie fail? From CNN, "The film — which goes by the tongue-twisting title "Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn" — nabbed a disappointing $33.2 million opening at the North American box office this weekend. That number was enough to give the film the No. 1 spot, but was less than expectations. The film was projected to make around$45 million with some industry analysts predicting the comic book film to make even more.

It's a tad bit surprising that "Birds of Prey" didn't take off. The film has a solid 81% on Rotten Tomatoes and stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Quinn, who may not be as big of a name as DC's other superhero standouts like Batman or Wonder Woman, isa comic book icon that boasts a loyal fan base." They also added the R-rating may have been a factor, but who knows for sure? Check out more here
