Adjust Comment Print

I, Tonya is certainly an intriguing role choice for The Wolf of Wall Street breakout actress, Margot Robbie, embodying one of the most notorious tabloid figures in history. The 45-second teaser features quick cuts of Harding's skating career as well as the hit on Kerrigan orchestrated by her ex-husband and bodyguard. Harding was allegedly involved with the plot, but hindered the officials investigation into the matter after the fact and was banned for life from the U.S. Figure Skating Association. 'But they want someone to hate'.

"Tell the truth. There's no such thing as truth".

Love hate relationship: 'America, they want someone to love, ' the Australian narrates in an impressive OR accent. The film details the life story of Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) and how the events in her life really happened. She wound up pleading guilty to conspiring to hinder prosecution of the assailants and got off with probation, community service and a fine.

The pic held its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. Paul Walter Hauser, Julianne Nicholson, Bobby Cannavale and Mckenna Grace also star.

Reports about low demand for the iPhone 8 were backed up by the fact that lines were shorter outside stores. This is Apple's 10th anniversary iPhone and it comes with the company's biggest updates to date.

Shortly thereafter, Neon, the distributor responsible for this year's Ingrid Goes West and Beach Rats, acquired I, Tonya for a hefty $5 million.

Joining her in I, Tonya is co-star Sebastian Stan (Captain America films, The Martian) as Harding's then-husband Jeff Gillooly, a name that permeated the news cycle during the height of the scandal in question.

We can't stress enough how jazzed we are about this movie (not to mention the performance Allison Janney gives as Harding's domineering mother).
