New to Theatres This Weekend: Birds of Prey, The Lodge, Come to Daddy


The first major comic book movie of 2020 arrives in theatres this weekend as Margot Robbie returns as Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey. Expectations are somewhat modest, falling in the $50 million range but the movie has the potential to be much bigger given the current lack of competition and the $133 million debut of Suicide Squad back in 2016. On the other hand, this movie is rated R and it doesn’t have Will Smith or Jared Leto in it. In select theatres, we also have The Lodge, the latest horror film from the directors of Goodnight Mommy, and Ant Timpson’s horror-comedy Come to Daddy starring Elijah Wood (which is also on VOD) plus the Chinese CG-animated film Legend of Deification.
