'I, Tonya' Teaser Introduces Margot Robbie As Tonya Harding

The first teaser for I, Tonya is here - and it doesn't disappoint.

The dark comedy centers on the life and career of the infamous Olympic figure skater, who fell from grace after the attack on fellow competitor Nancy Kerrigan. "But they want someone to hate", Robbie narrates in an eery imitation of Harding's voice. "For Craig Gillespie, I, Tonya represents a similar vindication, giving credence to the director's budding gift first demonstrated in his dramedy Lars and the Real Girl, even if it is ten years on". "And the haters always say: 'Tonya, tell the truth!' There's no such thing as the truth". In its own way, the trailer seems to be covering its own ass by claiming that the truth is bullshit anyway.

Margot Robbie nailed the landing-and her transformation into disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding.

The film also stars Allison Janney as Harding's tough-love mother, Julianne Nicholson as Harding's teacher, Paul Walter Hauser as Harding's "bodyguard" and Caitlin Carver as Kerrigan. However, the sense of triumph doesn't last: we then see a brief shot of Slant taking out the baton he would use to attack Kerrigan, the event that catalyzed Harding's downfall, and flashing police lights and a snippet of a make-up free Robbie being hounded by the press.

"Tonya may have been a punchline, but as presented in I, Tonya, the hard facts of her life actually read like a tragedy", Mashable early review of the film notes.

I, Tonya will hit theaters with a limited release on December 8, followed by a nationwide rollout.
