Neon has released the first teaser trailer for I, Tonya, the highly anticipated biopic of the infamous figure skater Tonya Harding. The amazingly talented Margot Robbie stars as the titular real life character and the film will not only be a biopic but also a re-telling of one of the most bizarre and ridiculously insane true-life scandals of all-time.
The film is helmed by The Finest Hours and Million Dollar Arm director Craig Gillespie. Along with Robbie, the film also stars Sebastian Stan, Allison Janney, Julianne Nicholson, Bobby Cannavale, and Mckenna Grace.

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 is set to hit theaters just in time for awards consideration on December 8th.
