'I, Tonya' Debuts First Full Length Trailer: See Margot Robbie as Disgraced Figure Skater Tonya Harding

Margot Robbie stars as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in the first trailer from I, Tonya

Margot Robbie is skating on thin ice in the first full-length trailer for I, Tonya, a dark comedy about the Tonya Harding Olympic scandal.

Debuted on Wednesday, the trailer comes as Oscar buzz continues to grow around her performance. The film also earned rave reviews when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

The movie follows Harding’s story from her early skating days to her training for the ’94 Winter Olympics before her ex-husband intervenes and tries to sabotage rival skater Kerrigan. The infamous event made headlines for its brutality and tale of rival ice princesses.

Though Harding long disputed her involvement, she was eventually convicted of hindering the investigation into the incident. She received three years probation, 500 hours of community service, a $160,000 fine and was ultimately banned from the U.S. Figure Skating Association for life.

In the I, Tonya teaser released last week, Robbie uncannily mimicked the skater’s voice: “America, they want someone to love. But 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 bulls—.”

The trailer also offers first looks of Allison Janney as Harding’s mother LaVona, and a mustache sporting Sebastian Stan as ex-husband and Nancy Kerrigan attack mastermind Jeff Gillooly.

I, Tonya opens in N.Y.C and Los Angeles on December 8.
