Despite pretty amazing reviews and great ensemble cast, the Harley Quinn movie Birds of Prey has been struggling at the box office, but Twitter users are having none of that. They started a viral hashtag in support of this empowering movie.
#ReasonsToSupportBoP started trending on Twitter after a user by the name @Mikey_Talks posted a viral list of reasons to go see this movie. The fact that this project has a diverse female ensemble, both in front and behind the camera, was one of his main reasons to recommend it to other people.
Other Twitter users pointed out a long list of other reasons, including the film’s incredible cinematography, amazing action sequences, the chemistry between the leads, and the fact that Margot Robbie worked really hard to give us a Harley Quinn movie that does justice to this character.
Birds of Prey premiered on February 7th, to overwhelmingly positive reviews, but many experts described it as a box office failure since it marked the lowest opening for a DC film in a decade.
Despite the fact it isn’t the huge commercial success that the studio expected, this film already earned back its budget and received better reviews than the majority of previously released DC films.
