That she is Margot Robbie, and by the looks of the first teaser trailer, she's brilliant while playing U.S. figure skater Tonya Harding in the upcoming film, I, Tonya, which is set to be released ahead of the Winter Olympics in December.

The flick surrounds Harding's attack on Nancy Kerrigan before the 1994 Winter Olympics—a moment that not only captivated the world, but also ended Harding's career.

The film has already received a ton of positive feedback and traction throughout film festivals and is expected to be an awards season favorite early next year.

Not only does Robbie put on an incredible portrayal of Harding, but Allison Janney's performance of her abusive mother has also seen many nods of approval.

Directed by Craig Gillespie, the film also stars Bobby Cannavale and Sebastian Stan.

It's due to premiere in theaters in New York and Los Angeles on December 8.
