After Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn’s opening weekend fell short at the Box Office with a domestic gross of $33.2 million (which is less than the initial projected numbers of $45-$55 million), Warner Bros. Pictures has officially decided to change the film’s long title to Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey.

The studio has already requested theaters such as AMC, Cinemark and Regal to now list the film in its new title in hopes of appealing to a lot of moviegoers who are much more familiar with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
