LOS ANGELES: Actor Margot Robbie's latest anti-hero ensemble feature "Birds of Prey" has reportedly being marketed by Warner Bros with a new title in the wake of dismal opening weekend score.

According to Entertainment Weekly, prominent theatre chains in the US like AMC, Regal, and Cinemark are all displaying the film's new title on their websites.
