Margot Robbie's new film looks absolutely filthy and brilliant

Margot Robbie is Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, and the red band trailer previews her uncensored upbringing with an abusive mother played by Allison Janney.

Never mind that Harding sometimes was forced to urinate on the ice, according to people who knew her then.

"America, they want someone to love but they want someone to hate", Robbie's Tonya Harding says bitterly. Alongside Robbie, the film stars the wonderful Allison Janney as her mother LaVona Golden and Sebastian Stan as her volatile ex-husband.

The Wolf Of Wall Street star looked worlds away from her usual glamour, dressed in dowdy clothing and puffing away on a cigarette in the short clip.

"My entire life, I've been told I wouldn't amount to anything", Tonya says about 50 seconds in.

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". Harding's involvement would eventually lead to her being stripped of her 1994 national title and banned for life from the figure skating world.

Gillooly, Stant and Eckhardt were all jailed but Tonya avoided incarceration by pleading guilty on March 16 to conspiring to hinder prosecution of the attackers.

Robbie looks nearly unrecognizable, blending into the role seamlessly, and her skating looks impressively good. We are so, so intrigued, and can't wait to see I, Tonya when it triple axels into theaters on December 8th.
