Margot Robbie made her debut as Harley Quinn in David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad,” one of the worst reviewed comic book movies of the last decade. Despite the critical bashing, most people agreed that Robbie’s spontaneous energy as Harley was the only saving grace of the film. Fortunately, that energy is front and center in the latest trailer for Robbie’s Harley Quinn spinoff movie “Birds of Prey.” The movie marks the studio directing debut of Cathy Yan, who last helmed the small independent drama “Dead Pigs.” Robbie stars opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary.

“Birds of Prey” follows Harley trying to put her life together after breaking up with the Joker (played by Jared Leto in “Suicide Squad”). With a bounty on her head, Harley teams up with the aforementioned comic book characters in order to stay alive and protect a young girl named Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) from the villainous Black Mask (Ewan McGregor). Chris Messina also stars as the henchman Mr. Zsasz.

Warner Bros. is currently having enormous success with “Joker,” the Todd Phillips-directed comic book drama that has earned over $1 billion worldwide and won Joaquin Phoenix the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama. “Joker” is the most profitable comic book film ever released and is expected to pick up Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor, and more. Will the studio have similar success with “Birds of Prey”? One thing is for sure: “Birds of Prey” is the anti-“Joker.”

I did see ‘Joker,’ yeah,” Robbie recently told Variety when asked about the film. “[Phoenix] did a phenomenal job. Our world in ‘Birds of Prey’ is very different — the aesthetic, the tone. Very, very different. Ours is certainly a heightened reality. There’s a clear distinction between real life and what you’re experiencing on the screen. I feel like the ‘Joker’ film was much more grounded. Ours is different.

Warner Bros. is opening “Birds of Prey” in theaters nationwide February 7.

Margot Robbie has excelled at playing real people on screen.

In 2019, she played Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” and the year before, she took on Queen Elizabeth I in “Mary Queen of Scots.” In a career-making performance — for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award and an Oscar — Robbie portrayed disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in 2017’s “I, Tonya.”

Tackling the role of Kayla Pospisil — an ambitious young Fox News producer who falls prey to Roger Ailes (John Lithgow) — in “Bombshell” presented a much different challenge. Unlike Charlize Theron’s Megyn Kelly and Nicole Kidman’s Gretchen Carlson, Robbie’s character is fictional, a composite created by screenwriter Charles Randolph to illustrate Ailes’ late-stage sexual harassment and abuse — just before his Shakespearean downfall in the summer of 2016.

I didn’t understand her to begin with,” Robbie says. “But my process is to do a ton of research, consider every single option, know every single situation, scenario, thought and motivation inside and out, so I can step onto set and then let it all go.

She set about figuring Kayla out, using a methodology “Bombshell” director Jay Roach calls “a nerdy desire to get it all down.” She watched the Fox News shows Kayla would have liked, and created a fake Twitter account so she could observe the performative opinionating of “young millennial conservative girls.” (Robbie wouldn’t specify whom she followed, but picture the Tomi Lahrens of the world.)

And she perfected Kayla’s speaking voice, twisting her Australian drawl into a perky Floridian lilt. Roach urged Robbie to watch footage of Katherine Harris, Florida’s former secretary of state, who became famous during the aftermath of the Bush v. Gore presidential election of 2000 and was played by Laura Dern in Roach’s 2008 HBO movie “Recount.” Harris grew up privileged and evangelical in Florida, as did Kayla. “I just love the sounds of her vowels — they’re incredible,” Robbie says. But Harris wasn’t her sole touchpoint: “Every day, I’d do the monologue from ‘Legally Blonde,’” she says, citing Reese Witherspoon’s Elle Woods as the type of character who is “incredibly smart” but “underestimated because of their looks.”

Robbie’s hard work in “Bombshell,” which was released by Lionsgate, has paid off. She will compete in the supporting actress category this week at the Golden Globes, as well as for outstanding performance by a female actor in a supporting role at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 19. She is a front-runner for an Oscar nomination.

The awards recognition capped off a year in which Robbie created a stir with her affectionate portrayal of Tate in “Once Upon a Time” and filmed “Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn,” a spinoff from the 2016 film “Suicide Squad” that she conceived more than four years ago. The movie, which Robbie stars in and produced, hits theaters on Feb. 7. She is currently shooting James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad,” a sequel to the original film, in Atlanta. It’s slated for release Aug. 6, 2021.
