Margot Robbie goes full-on crazy in this new entertaining red-band trailer for her Tanya Harding biopic I, Tanya. This character almost seems more insane and unstable than Robbie's version of Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad! The film was inspired by the true story of Tanya Harding's ungraceful rise to the Olympics and fall. As you'll see, it's told in the style of a dark comedy and it looks like a really great movie!
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 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:
I, Tonya opens on December 8th and I can't wait to see it!
