Now Playing: Birds Of Prey - First Look

As its title suggests, CinemaCon is the annual convention for the National Association of Theatre Owners, and in recent years has become a vital part of early movie publicity. Unlike San Diego Comic-Con, it isn't a public event, but studios clearly realise that screening early footage for the industry and media can be a major help in building buzz for new films.

Warner had a major presence at this year's CinemaCon, which is currently underway in Las Vegas. The studio previewed three of its highly anticipated upcoming DC movies, namely Joker, Birds of Prey, and Wonder Woman 1984.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first Joker trailer was introduced by director Todd Phillips, who explained that rumors about the film's tone and plot "[haven't] been accurate." Phillips then described the movie as a "tragedy." As for the trailer, THR states that it includes footage of Joaquin Phoenix's lead character being attacked before trying on various costumes to find his iconic Joker look. [UPDATE: the Joker trailer is now online.]

Unlike Joker, early footage of Birds of Prey was officially released in January, but CinemaCon attendees got see more of the movie, which arrives in February 2020 and sees Margot Robbie reprise her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn. Slashfilm described the new footage as "bright, bold, and bursting with neon colors," and it included a shot of Harley Quinn roller skating behind a moving vehicle. In addition, the Birds of Prey presentation revealed that Harley isn't actually a full-time member of the titular female superhero team.

As for Wonder Woman 1984, although the movie isn't due for release until July 2020, it was shot before both Joker and Birds of Prey. According to Variety, there were several scenes shown, including footage of Diana (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) walking through Washington DC, Diana getting involved in some action in an '80s shopping mall, and Kristen Wiig's villainous Cheetah.
