The Margot Corner

To celebrate the release of the new ‘I, Tonya‘ teaser trailer, Trevor Godinho released a set of images, taken during a portrait session at the Toronto International Film Festival a number of weeks ago. The images are designed with a red gradient, which does nothing to hide Margot’s beauty shining through.

These portraits have been added to the gallery, with the original Instagram post available here.

As we know, NEON recently acquired the rights of ‘I,Tonya‘ and yesterday, they launched the official website for the movie, as well as revealing a new teaser trailer and promotional stills of the movie. On the official site, the synopsis reads as:

Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie’s I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked––and checkered––glory.

The site also posted a bunch of new promotional images of Margot as Tonya Harding. I have added these to the gallery. I have also made screencaps of the new teaser trailer as well as adding a promotional poster advertising the video.

Apologies for the delay in adding these images to the gallery! On the 16th October, Margot travelled to Los Angeles to appear at the special celebration event of Women in Hollywood, hosted by Elle. Margot was one of eight women to be honored by Elle, and was introduced on stage by her Suicide Squad co-star, Jay Hernandez.

For the event, Margot wore a dress and heels from the Calvin Klein Collection. You can find the first set of HQ images of Margot on the night in the gallery by visiting the link below.

   

Just before the ceremony began, Elle Magazine posted a letter on their site, written by Margot herself. It highlights the bravery of women in Hollywood and the platform to be used to speak the truth.

Dear Hollywood,

We accept that we had to sacrifice a whole week standing our ground and defending our rights as women. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are when you still see as you want to see us: in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions.

Being a woman in Hollywood means you will probably have to fight through degrading situations and will be offered chauvinistic roles by men who think that that’s all anybody wants to see us play. But even those of us lucky enough to have established a career in the hallowed grounds of show business are still in the shadows of the big trees, constantly reminded that we only grow in the sunshine they allow us. These difficulties we face are to share the same spirit of those faced by countless women all over the world who struggle for the right to earn a living, the right to be heard, and even the right to be safe from harm.

In recent years, superhero films have been all the rage, and I should know as I have benefitted from the trend. I only wish we could transfer a little bit of that heroism into reality. That those heroes we admire in movies would defend us against the villains in government, in the workplace, in the entertainment industry, and even in the most basic human interactions. There are women in and out of Hollywood that have proven this week that they are those real heroes. Their bravery and courage to speak truth to power has made a powerful impact that can be the start of real change. It is our decision, and those of us that have a platform can choose to use it for those in the world who do now. Which means that, we can not only highlight the painful inequities, but we can continue to speak out as long as they exist. And we can keep drawing attention to injustice wherever we find it and to use our talents and intellects and privilege to help a new chapter of women, a chapter for all of us.

So thinking about being a woman in Hollywood reminded me that when you take away Hollywood, we are all just women, all facing the inequalities that being a women brings with it. And, what I’ve come to understand is that, though we are unique and powerful as individuals, we are invincible when we come together. So, some may have seen us as objects and other individuals, but never as equals. But, in the words of The Breakfast Club, each one of us is a brain and an athlete and a basket case and a princess and a criminal. Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours, The Girls Club.

With Margot currently promoting ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin‘ and ‘I, Tonya‘, it can be easy to forget just how busy she has been the past few years, and the fact a trailer has been released for another movie shows it!

Although we don’t hear Margot in this specific trailer, we do know that she is playing the character of ‘Flopsy.‘ As fans of the literature classic will know, ‘Flopsy’ is one third of a set of triplets, the other two sisters called ‘Mopsy‘ and ‘Cottontail‘. These two characters are voiced by Elizabeth Debicki and Daisy Ridley, respectively.

It’s also fun to know that, for the third time, Margot will be appearing in a movie with Domhnall Gleeson!

The synopsis details:

Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail. | Source
