I, TONYA Teaser Just Wants You To Love It

And judging by the first teaser trailer for I, Tonya, which was unveiled Thursday, Harding's laugh wasn't the only thing Robbie mastered.

"America, they want someone to love", Robbie as Harding says in a voiceover. The film details the life story of Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) and how the events in her life really happened.

Her bodyguard and her ex-husband had enlisted a thug to break Nancy's leg, and although he bungled the job, he still bruised Nancy severely enough to force her out of the U.S. Figure Skating Championship.

People are expressing excitement towards seeing Margot Robbie transform into the disgraced skater Tonya Harding who was accused of orchestrating a horrific attack on competing athlete Nancy Kerrigan.

Tonya Harding entered a guilty plea via a plea bargain to the charge of conspiring to hinder the prosecution of the attack.

The first teaser trailer has been released for I, Tonya. She was banned for life from the United States Figure Skating Association.

The footage comes as buzz continues to grow around the Oscar-hopeful after earning rave reviews at its Toronto International Film Festival premiere in September. Names such as Bobby Cannavale (Ant-Man, Mr. Robot), Allison Janney (Mom, The West Wing), Julianne Nicholson (Black Mass, Eyewitness) also appear. It's one of the very best pictures NEON has put out thus far, and when it hits select theaters December 8, 2017, we totally think you're going to agree.

Craig Gillespie's I, Tonya trades in gossip, but it also wants to get to the truth. The purple one at the top of the trailer is the spitting image of one Harding wore in the late '80s (one of many designed by her mother, LaVona).
