Birds of Prey was a disappointment at the box office in its first weekend, and Warner Bros. is changing the title as seen in theaters to put the main character up front. Screenrant reports that AMC, Regal, and Cinemark are among the theaters who have changed the film’s title as displayed to to Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey at the request of the studio.

The film’s title previously referenced Margot Robbie’s Harley, but only in the extended title Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Most theaters have been just displaying it without the subtitle, and Warner Bros. wanted to put the more well-known star forward in order to give audiences more of a recognizable franchise character to attract them.

The film grossed $33 million domestically and $81 million worldwide in its first weekend.
