With its arrival on the big screen in February 2020, the Birds Of Prey DVD, Blu-ray, digital, rental and 4K UK release date is on its way and we’re expecting it to be one of the biggest of the year. It continues the great year DC Films has had for its home entertainment launches, following on from the crazy success of Joker, and it should lead to more films with a unique slant in years to come.
For Harley Quinn and the rest of the birds, Huntress, Black Canary, Renee Montoya and Cassandra Cain, the general gist is that they all come together to fight against the tyranny of Roman Sionis, AKA the Black Mask. The mob boss of the Gotham City underworld has put a hit out on Cassandra and it’s up to the group to form up in their own unique way and smash the mask to dust.Advertisement The cast is a big part of the makeup of Birds Of Prey and they’re clearly going to be as much of a draw on DVD, Blu-ray and digital as at the big screen. Margot Robbie has become synonymous with the role of Harley Quinn, following her iconic performance in 2016s Suicide Squad and her efforts in BOP are already enough for a sequel to be on the cards with The Suicide Squad planned for 2021.
The good news for the home entertainment release is that the rest of the cast steps up well, helping Birds Of Prey to secure good reviews for its cinematic run. With Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary and Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, not to mention Ewan McGregor as Sionis, you’ve got a lot of potential.
DVD, Blu-ray, 4K, iTunes or digital rental in the UK?Advertisement The Birds Of Prey UK DVD and Blu-ray release date is expected towards the end of May 2020 and with both good reviews and a strong fan following for Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn there’s bound to be a 4K Ultra HD release to go with it on the same date.
The digital version will out a couple of weeks before the DVD, Blu-ray and 4K release, so it’ll be available to buy from major providers like iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play and YouTube around mid May 2020. As ever, the special features will only be available on the HD and 4K digital versions in the UK, and we’ll post up the full details on the bonus content when they’re announced.Advertisement If you miss the cinema release of the film and you want to catch up with the digital rental version, this will be out on the same date as the DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD.
Runtime and digital file size
The runtime for Birds Of Prey is 1 hours and 49 minutes, which is a good way shorter than other recent DC Films Joker and Aquaman, which were both over 2 hours long. That should should translate to a digital file size of approximately 4.73 Gb at 1080p HD, and 1.82 GB in standard definition.
Age rating and parents guide
Birds Of Prey has an age rating of 15 in the UK and R in the US. The parents guide notes from the British Board Of Film Classification include strong violence, injury detail, language, and sexual threat, so this is clearly not for the faint of heart.
Cinema release date
The Birds Of Prey UK release date on the big screen was on Friday 7th February 2020, which saw it going up against Dolittle, which is out on the same date in the UK. Reviews haven’t been kind on the Robert Downey Jr. menagerie adventure though, which left BOP with an easy run for the number 1 spot.
