VIDEO: Margot Robbie and Allison Janney Led I, TONYA Releases Teaser Trailer
Margot Robbie took the world by storm when a photo of her looking as a dead ringer for figure skater Tonya Harding emerged from the set of the dark comedy I, TONYA. Now, audiences are getting more of a taste of the movie with a teaser trailer.
Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie's I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked--and checkered--glory.
The film has received positive accolades from multiple film festivals, making it a possible contender for Awards Season. Robbie has earned a Gotham Award for her work, while Janney is receiving reviews from critics.
I, TONYA opens December 8 in New York and Los Angeles, just before the Winter Olympics.
