The actress shows off her range as she seduces, tortures and manipulates the likes of Simon Pegg and Mike Myers.
Margot Robbie on Wednesday unveiled the first trailer for Terminal, which showed off the slick, dark, film noir world of her latest film.
The trailer opens with Robbie’s femme fatale character, Annie, sporting a black bob haircut and a British accent as she interrogates a man using extreme methods.
The rest of the cast is then introduced — including Simon Pegg, Max Irons, Mike Myers and Dexter Fletcher — as the trailer showcases a gritty world filled with neon signs, dark alleys and dangerous, seedy characters.
The film, directed by Vaughn Stein in his feature debut, follows the interwoven tales of two hit men (Irons and Fletcher), a teacher battling a terminal illness (Pegg), a janitor (Myers) and a diner waitress living a dangerous double life (Robbie).
The trailer shows Robbie flexing her range as she offers advice to Pegg’s character while taking a break from waiting tables, teases Fletcher and Irons’ hit men in a strip club and hints at her master plan behind-the-scenes to “set them upon each other like starving rats in a cage, and you can watch through the bars.”
Actress Margot Robbie has gone from Ramsay Street to Hollywood and has the world at her feet. She was nominated for an Oscar for I, Tonya, which she also produced, and she was in Australia to talk about her latest film, Peter Rabbit. She sat down last week with 7.30’s Mon Schafter who used to work with Margot on the set of Neighbours.
The upcoming noir thriller, Terminal, follows two hitmen, Max Irons (The Riot Club) and Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), who take a risky job from a mysterious but high-paying client. Complications ensue when they encounter Annie (Margot Robbie), a “dynamic woman” who may be more connected to the job than they know.
Femme fetale Robbie narrates the mysterious first trailer in a sinister, mischievous voice and alludes to being “mad as a hatter.” Watch the teaser below.
First-time director Vaughn Stein helms Terminal, which also features the onscreen return of Mike Myers and Simon Pegg. The film is scheduled to arrive on May 11th via RLJE Films.

Margot attended the Film Independent Spirit Awards. She was also a presenter with Timothée Chalamet.
Unfortunatly again Margot lost out on the Lead Female award to Frances McDormand. However good news for Allison Janney who won another award for her best supporting female role. And Tatiana S. Riegel won for best editing. Lets hope Margot takes it where it counts, at the Oscars!
One of Australia’s most talented exports, Margot Robbie, is in and out of her comfort zone here. Case in point: snacks.
Snacking is everyone’s favourite way to pass time. Crisps, chocolate bars, the odd apple when you’ve indulged in takeaways for three nights straight and need to feel a tad more “healthy”…
But here, the I, Tonya star puts her palette to the test by tasting classic British and American snacks, before giving her verdict on which is best.
From Space Invaders vs Shapes, Marmite vs Vegemite, Irn Bru vs Solo, Penguins vs TimTams, John Smiths vs Four-X; the competition was heated. But which snacks came out on top? The UK’s or Down Under’s?
Side-by-side snack wars, we also got to grips with Margot’s other talents – especially her ice skating skills. She’s not a complete amateur, but she’s not olympic level. We think that’s a great honest combo.
When asked whether she’d be a keen olympian: “I’d love to be a pole vaulter, because that’s the kind of sport that defies physics, gravity, and logic. Just looks fun.” to rate her own ice skating skills.”
And of course we had to pose the questions on everyone’s minds, like would she ever be up for a James Bond film and her worst chat up line.
Margot, who rose to fame and acclaim with The Wolf Of Wall Street and Suicide Squad, also tackled LADS On Film with a focus on her latest role.
Touching on everything from the real life Tonya Harding to hilarious set stories and The Oscars, this short and sweet Q&A further cements Margot’s legendary status in the industry.
I, Tonya is out in UK cinemas now
What raises Margot Robbie’s heart rate? Nick Grimshaw finds out what pushes her buttons with the help of Cara Delevingne, Alexander Skarsgård, Sam Clark, Bullet For My Valentine and Corey Taylor from Slipknot.
A massive couple of days for Margot leading up to the BAFA’s. First attending the Nespresso British Academy Film Awards Nominees Party and then attending the Charles Finch & CHANEL Pre-Bafta party on the Saturday, before the main event on Sunday night. (Photos from all events added to the gallery)
Unfortunatly Margot didnt win the award for leading actress with Frances McDormand again taking the award. However Allison was able to win the Supporting actress award for her portrayal of Tonya Hardings mother in the film. Margot did present an award during the show.
