In the story, Harley Quinn and the Joker split up, and Quinn joins Black Canary, Huntress, and Renee Montoya to save a kidnapped girl from the mob. Robbie is reprising her role as Harley Quinn for the film, which is a spinoff the 2016 film “Suicide Squad.” Joining Robbie in the movie are Ewan McGregor as Black Mask, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, and Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain.

The following week the movies “Fantasy Island,” “The King’s Man,” “The Photograph,” “Sonic the Hedgehog” and “What About Love” hit theaters nationwide. The other big releases that month are “Bloodshot” with Vin Diesel, the animated adaptation of “The Call of the Wild,” and “The Invisible Man” from Universal Pictures.
