Complete Mayhem: No Cuts, ‘Birds of Prey’ Screens with R-16 Rating

Warner Bros.' much-anticipated DC film is coming to local cinemas without cuts from MTRCB!

Warner Bros.’ eagerly anticipated DC adventure “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, has been rated R-16 Without Cuts by the Movie and Television Review & Classification Board (MTRCB).

In its official report, the MTRCB committee that reviewed “Birds of Prey” wrote that “The film contains graphic but non-gratuitous depiction of horror, frightening scenes and gore, graphic but non-gratuitous depiction of violence and gore, language, non-gratuitous depiction of drugs or their use,  that may not be suitable for children below sixteen (16) years of age.”

Fans welcomed the Board’s decision as this will allow the film’s exhibition in its original and uncut version, similar to what happened with last October’s “Joker” which was shown without cuts and even ran away with the record of Biggest Grossing R-Rated Film in the Philippines, US and the entire world.

You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, 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 Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her.  Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down. 

Margot Robbie  returns as Harley Quinn, alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress; Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary; Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya; Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz; and Ewan McGregor  as Roman Sionis.  Newcomer Ella Jay Basco also stars as Cassandra “Cass” Cain in her feature film debut.

Directed by Cathy Yan (“Dead Pigs”) from a script by Christina Hodson (“Bumblebee”), the film is based on characters from DC.

In Philippine cinemas Thursday, February 6, “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” is distributed in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures.  Connect with #BirdsOfPrey and tag @wbphils and @warnerbros_ph
