It’s safe to say when news broke about a Tonya Harding movie being in the works and that Margot Robbie was cast as the disgraced figure skater, most of us were thinking “WHHYYYYY?!”
Upon seeing the teaser trailer, however, this film may just triple axel its way into our hearts.
Robbie’s transformation has been heavily documented, but seeing her in those awful bangs and skater dress is something to behold. Like a train wreck or the media circus that surrounded Harding and Nancy Kerrigan during the 1994 Olympics, you can’t help but stare.
And the same could be said for moviegoers when I, Tonya hits theaters December 8.
Starring MARGOT ROBBIE, SEBASTIAN STAN, ALLISON JANNEY Directed by CRAIG GILLESPIE Written STEVEN ROGERS 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.
Erica Banas is a lover of classic television and wishes tap dancing would make a serious comeback.
