In the acclaimed new mockumentary "I Tonya," Margot Robbie made it clear to her real-life subject that she was playing "a character," not Harding herself, who was banned from the sport in 1994 after her associates attacked rival Nancy Kerrigan.
Coming off its rapturous reaction at the Toronto International Film Festival — where Yahoo Entertainment called it one of the festival’s “hottest tickets” — the mockumentary-cum-biopic, I, Tonya, has released its first teaser trailer in advance of its Dec. 8 theatrical release. Directed by Craig Gillespie (of Lars and the Real Girl notoriety) the film stars a potentially Oscar-bound Margot Robbie as disgraced Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding, who was infamously implicated in a scandal to harm rival Nancy Kerrigan at the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. It’s safe to say that Robbie knows plenty about Harding’s rise and fall now, aided by American co-stars like Allison Janney, who plays the skater’s nightmare-inducing mother, LaVona Golden. Though she doesn’t have a big role in this trailer, The West Wing star has been singled out amongst the ensemble cast as a comic force to be reckoned with.
Tonya Harding is a punch line and she knows it. But she'll no doubt be pleased with the new biopic "I, Tonya," which goes for laughs but also adds context to the skater’s familiar story.

There are something like 32,000 Marvel characters in the upcoming superhero ensemble Avengers: Infinity War, so naturally when the stars hit the red carpet at this weekend’s D23 Expo, we wondered what the vibe has been like on set so far. Is it chaotic? Is it cliquey? Are they all just one big happy family?
