Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan and Allison Janney star in I, Tonya, based on the incredible true story of figure skater Tonya Harding. Watch a new trailer here!
After a tantalizing first look at Craig Gillespie’s upcoming Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya comes the full-length red band trailer, which gives us a much better impression of Margot Robbie’s performance:
Based on this trailer, Robbie is undoubtedly going to win awards for this performance! The trailer also lets Allison Janney shine as Tonya’s mother LaVona Golden, with Sebastian Stan completing the trifecta of talent.
The full synopsis for the movie reads:
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 has already premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and you can read an early review on Collider. It opens in cinemas on December 8.
