The first poster for the Birds of Prey movie has landed – most likely ahead of the first trailer – and it's pretty out there.

Birds of Prey and The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn, to give it its full, pretty ridiculous full name, will find Margot Robbie reprising her role from Suicide Squad.

The one-time moll of the Joker – Jared Leto's, erm, divisive version – she's now got her own movie in which to spread her wings.

As per the DC Comics, Robbie's former psychiatrist, sent mad by the Joker and into a life of crime, will lead her very of own gang of anti-heroines on the fringes of the law.
