Trailer Watch: Margot Robbie Chases Glory and Finds Infamy in “I, Tonya”

“I, Tonya”

A new Red Band trailer has dropped for awards hopeful “I, Tonya.” The Margot Robbie-starrer centers on world-renowned athlete turned punchline Tonya Harding. “My entire life I’ve been told I wouldn’t amount to anything,” says Tonya in the trailer. And yet by her own estimation, she went on to become “the best figure skater in the world at one point in time.”

Though she made history with her stunning triple axels, Harding’s legacy has everything to do with what occurred off the rink. “I, Tonya” revisits one of the most controversial moments in sports history — the infamous attack on Harding’s fellow U.S. skater and competitor Nancy Kerrigan.

But the spot doesn’t just emphasize Tonya’s alleged involvement with that incident. Instead, it focuses on Tonya’s relationship with her physically and emotionally abusive mother, played by Allison Janney. We see her describing Tonya’s coach as a “cunt,” and she bluntly tells Tonya, “I made you a champion knowing you’d hate me for it. That’s a sacrifice a mother makes.”

The pic depicts Harding’s harrowing treatment from her mother and her ex-husband (Sebastian Stan, “Captain America” franchise). The dark dramedy also suggests that Harding was largely unaware of the plot to injure Kerrigan.

“I, Tonya” made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. Since then, there’s been awards chatter surrounding the film, especially Robbie and Janney’s performances. The former produced the project, which is directed by Craig Gillespie (“The Finest Hours”) and written by Steven Rogers (“Love the Coopers”).

Check out the Nsfw trailer to see Tonya’s amazing reaction to a judge who makes a snide comment about her appearance. “I, Tonya” hits theaters December 8.

Margot Robbie Gets Nasty in I, Tonya Red Band Trailer
"The haters always say, 'Tonya, tell the truth.' There's no such thing as truth. Everyone has their own truth." Tonya Harding was the best figure skater in the world at one point in time.

Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season

  • Indiewire
Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season
Mother-daughter relationships have always been the stuff of great drama. And the Oscars are no exception. Three decades ago the “Moonstruck” acting duo Olympia Dukakis and Cher both won gold for playing a strong-willed New York Italian mother and her feisty daughter. Six years later, as a mute Scottish teacher and her de facto interpreter in New Zealand, Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin repeated that twofer triumph with Jane Campion’s “The Piano.”

Onscreen mother-daughter conflict has resulted in other dual Academy Award nominations: selfless Barbara Stanwyck tricked Anne Shirley into marrying rich in tearjerker “Stella Dallas” (1937); Meryl Streep’s big mouth inspired a rebellious Julia Roberts in “August: Osage County” (2013); Piper Laurie was literally crucified by Sissy Spacek in “Carrie” (1976). At the start of this decade, Mo’Nique won an Oscar portraying the sexually abusive parent of fellow “Precious” nominee Gabourey Sidibe. Back in 1984, both Shirley MacLaine and
