2017 Movies: I, Tonya – Trailer
A teaser trailer for the upcoming biographical sports black comedy-drama film I, Tonya, starring Margot Robbie,
has been released.
The film, written by Steven Rogers and directed by Craig Gillespie, revolves around competitive ice skater Tonya Harding, who rises among the ranks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships but has her future in the sport thrown into doubt after a violent episode at the National Figure Skating Championship in 1994.
“America, they want someone to love, they want someone to hate. And the haters always say: Tonya, tell the truth. There’s no such thing as truth. I mean, it’s bullshit.” – Robbie’s voice is heard in the teaser, which hints that the 1994 attack on Harding’s rival Nancy Kerrigan, who was struck on a knee with a clublike instrument after leaving a practice session, will be one of the main issues approached in the film. Sebastian Stan, who plays Tonya’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, is also shown.
The film, also starring Allison Janney, Julianne Nicholson, Paul Walter Hauser, Caitlin Carver, Paul Walter Hauser, Bojana Novakovic and Bobby Cannavale, had its world premiere earlier this year, at the Toronto International Film
Festival, on September 8, and is set to be released on December 8.
