Let the Oscar Buzz Begin for Margot Robbie as Tonya Harding

Let the Oscar Buzz Begin for Margot Robbie as Tonya Harding

The film posits Harding as an aspiring star with a less-than-wholesome image and an abusive, chain-smoking mother (Allison Janney, unrecognizable in a role she seems born for) who bullies her daughter to greatness through violence and a foul mouth.

On the heels of the I, Tonya teaser that was released a couple weeks back, the first full-length I, Tonya trailer has arrived - and Margot Robbie continues to prove that she is disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding, this is the ideal role for her.

Based on unbelievable but true events, the film is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. The movie highlights Harding's tumultuous relationships with her chain-smoking, tough-as-nails, acid-tongued mother (Allison Janney) and hotheaded ex-husband Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan).

'And the haters always say, "Tonya, tell the truth".

"My entire life, I've been told I wouldn't amount to anything", Tonya says about 50 seconds in. There's no padding when you hit the ice'.

I, Tonya enters limited release on December 8, with nationwide expansion to follow at the top of 2018.
