First Teaser Trailer For Margot Robbie's Tanya Harding Biopic I, TONYA
Margot Robbie hits the ice in the first teaser trailer for her upcoming Tonya Harding biopic I, Tanya. It's a solid first look at the film that does a great job of setting the tone for the story. The movie is told in the style of a dark comedy, which is kind of the perfect way to tell this really strange and scandalous true story.
The movie was directed by Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm, Fright Night, The Finest Hours) and it also stars Allison Janney, Paul Walter Hauser, Julianne Nicholson, Caitlin Carver, Bojana Novakovic, and Bobby Cannavale. Here's the synopsis:
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.
I, Tonya opens on December 8th and it looks like it could be a good film that will showcase Robbie's talent.
