Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)'s trailer got a Once Upon a Time in Hollywood makeover, and the result was better than the original. Margot Robbie also starred in the latter film, which was an ode to 1960s Hollywood directed by Quentin Tarantino and also starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. Since its debut this past Summer, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has been at the forefront of everyone's mind in regard to Oscars 2020 predictions. It even broke records for Tarantino, including becoming his largest opening weekend ever with a whopping $41 million.
Although Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is mostly fictional, it featured a number of famous faces portraying real-life individuals from that time period, including Robbie as Sharon Tate. In the film, she lives next door to DiCaprio's fictional western star Rick Dalton, and even though her role isn't as big as her co-stars, she still captivated audiences with her dedication to the part and how she honored Tate. It was a performance that also showed how incredible Robbie's range is for acting. Not long after Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, she stepped into some vastly different shoes for the role of Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey. Now, one YouTuber has flawlessly brought both cinematic worlds together in one trailer.
Youtuber Jon Arryn Garza remade the Birds of Prey trailer to match the style of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood's. Similar to the latter's trailer, this one is set to the tune of Los Bravos' "Bring a Little Lovin'", and even has a font that's similarily styled to Tarantino's Hollywood trailers. The end result makes for a perfectly synced up trailer that almost looks better than the original. Check out the full video here:
Although the first official trailer for Birds of Prey wasn't bad by any means, many people had questions about it. Mainly about the song choice and why the trailer focused more on Harley than it did on the other Birds of Prey team members. In regard to the focus on Harley, it's possible that this decision could simply be for the trailer alone and isn't an indication that the movie will be the same way, but only time will truly tell with that. As for the trailer's song -- which was "Hyme à l'amour", or "The Hymn to Love", by Edith Piaf -- it's possible that it was chosen ironically to represent Harley's toxic relationship with the Joker.
Despite those questions, many fans adored that first trailer and were excited to finally see Harley and the Birds of Prey in action. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood remake of it is just another sign that the film will surely be a wild ride that fans will love. The action sequences and dialogue from the first trailer sync up very well with Tarantino's style, and since Birds of Prey will be Rated-R, there's plenty of room to be just as unabashedly wild as Tarantino is with his films. It's still unknown when a second trailer will be released, but this fun remix, along with the first trailer, are the perfect things to fuel fans' excitement until Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) officially arrives next February.
