NSFW I, Tonya trailer flips off biopic tradition

'I, Tonya' First Trailer Shows Margot Robbie Skating Around Tough Childhood, Relationships (Video)

Janney portrays LaVona Harding as a bitter chainsmoker who won't stop berating her daughter on multiple occasions.

After providing a sneak peek at Margot Robbie's gold medal-worthy transformation into Tonya Harding, upstart distributor Neon has unleashed the full-length I, Tonya trailer in advance of the movie's December 8 premiere. The movie highlights Harding's tumultuous relationships with her chain-smoking, tough-as-nails, acid-tongued mother (Allison Janney) and hotheaded ex-husband Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan).

Harding is an unreliable narrator from the first frame, with her voiceover explaining, "there's no such thing as truth-everyone has their own truth". "I made you a champion, knowing you'd hate me for it", she admits. From director Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl, Fright Night, Million Dollar Arm, The Finest Hours), the film tells a fictional, darkly comedic version of the story of figure skater Tonya Harding, who planned an attack on her rival Nancy Kerrigan in 1994.

From howling planets to whistling helium and unusual moons, this is how space Halloween sounds like. NASA scientists also use a process called data sonification to translate radio signals into sound.

Shane attacked the skater in a corridor at the Cobo Arena in Detroit, bruising her leg badly enough to keep her out of the National Championship that Tonya won. Four years later and it looks like the star of About Time and Suicide Squad has landed her best role to date.

I, Tonya, directed by Craig Gillespie and written by Steven Rogers, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and opens in NY and Los Angeles December 8.
