I grew up in the 90s, when Tonya Harding jokes were almost as plentiful as OJ Simpson or Bill Clinton jokes, to the point that it was next to impossible not to know who she was and what she did. Now, enough time has passed for an entire generation completely unaware of the legend of Tony Harding to grow up and buy tickets to movies – movies like I, Tonya.
I, Tonya is an upcoming biopic about Tony Harding starring Margot Robbie as Tonya, Sebastian Stan as her husband, and Allison Janney as her domineering mother. It appears to be a pretty irreverent take on the story, with plenty of fourth wall breaks from Robbie as Tonya. Check out the trailer for yourself below to see what I mean – but first a word of warning – this is the official redband trailer, and thus it might be considered a little NSFW:
I, Tonya skates into a theater near you on December 8th.
