Margot Robbie Plays It Cool For W’s Newest Cover.

In the new biopic, I, Tonya, Margot Robbie goes against type to play someone who is the opposite of the bombshells she’s portrayed until now in films like Wolf of Wall Street, Focus and the Legend of Tarzan. Instead, she inhabits ice queen Tonya Harding, and it’s not pretty. Here’s why that’s a good thing: For her fearless, uninhibited performance, Robbie is getting some of the best reviews of her career, so good, in fact, the role may lead her to her first Academy Award nomination. She tells Lynn Hirschberg why the character stayed with her: “The more I became Tonya, the more I saw things from her point of view. I’m on her side 100 percent,” she says. “I don’t think she did anything but be different from what the world wanted. There are cool misfits, and then there is Tonya. She didn’t fit in. And I love that.” For her new W cover story, Robbie was photographed by Craig McDean and styled by Melanie Ward in cool-as-ever fall looks, from Calvin Klein to a sleek Nili Lotan jumpsuit. As Hirschberg writes, with her blond hair and engaged manner, “she can’t help but shine.”

Margot Robbie to star in, produce ‘Dreamland’ in New Mexico.

Margot Robbie is returning to New Mexico.

This time, she’s starring in and producing “Dreamland,” a project under her LuckyChap Entertainment banner. She was last in New Mexico filming 2016’s “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.”

According to the New Mexico Film Office, production will begin mid-October and run through mid-November.

“We’re proud to see another production choose New Mexico,” said Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. “New Mexico’s deep talent pool, one-of-a-kind landscapes and powerful incentives make our state the perfect place to bring a production.”

“Dreamland,” set in the 1930s, follows Eugene Evans, whose family farm is on the precipice of foreclosure amid the devastation of the Dust Bowl.

Evans is on a quest to capture a fugitive bank robber, played by Robbie, and collect the bounty on her head.

Against all odds, he beats out the FBI and the local police to find her, only to discover that she’s far more than what the authorities claim her to be.

“The production will employ approximately 100 New Mexico crew members, approximately 18 New Mexico principal actors and approximately 225 New Mexico background talent,” the film office released.

According to Elizabeth Gabel, who is casting the film, the production is looking for men with 1930s hair to work as police officers. It is also looking for square dancers for a scene at Eaves Movie Ranch, just south of Santa Fe.

Production will take place in Albuquerque, Belen, Las Vegas and Santa Fe.

The project is also produced by Romulus Entertainment and Automatik Entertainment. It is directed by Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, and produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Rian Cahill, Robbie, Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara and Brad Feinstein.

Happy Birthday ‘Margot Robbie Online’.

Margot Robbie online turned 8 today! Opening back on the 24th of September 2009 when Margot was only just Australia’s sweetheart playing character ‘Donna Freedman’ on one of Australias most beloved soap tv shows ‘Neighbours’. Since then she has blossomed on movies over in the US and is now one of the most sort after actresses currently! I knew she’d make something of herself, you could see the talent of this girl!

So I hope you love the new layout as much as I do and thank you for your continued viewing and support of the longest, original sources for much loved Aussie actress Margot Robbie!

Margot Robbie’s I, Tonya sets Oscar-qualifying release date.

Margot Robbie’s Tonya Harding biopic is skating closer to awards season glory.

EW has confirmed the Craig Gillespie-directed film, one of the hottest acquisitions out of Toronto earlier this month, will hit select theaters on Dec. 8, with a nationwide rollout planned for subsequent weeks.

The film, about the titular champion ice skater who later embroiled herself in a plot to break the leg of her competitor, Nancy Kerrigan, world-premiered at TIFF earlier this month to enthusiastic reviews from movie critics, with particular praise — and Oscar buzz — brewing for Robbie and Allison Janney, who plays Harding’s mother, LaVonda Golden.

The film went on to become the first runner-up for the festival’s People’s Choice Award, a key best picture precursor that has gone to eight films that have either won or been nominated for the Academy’s top honor across the last 10 years.

Neon, the distributor behind specialty hits like this year’s Ingrid Goes West and Beach Rats, purchased I, Tonya for $5 million following the film’s well-received debut, reportedly beating out an $8 million bid from Netflix and further offers from Annapurna and CBS Films.

Margot Robbie to appear at Hamptons International Film Festival for Tonya Harding movie.

Margot Robbie will accompany her new film, “I, Tonya,” at the Hamptons International Film Festival next month.

The film, which features Robbie as the disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding, will serve as the festival’s closing-night screening.

Robbie, currently riding a wave of success following her portrayal of the supervillain Harley Quinn in 2016’s “Suicide Squad,” is one of the bigger names to grace the Hamptons festival in recent years. Also in attendance will be Sam Rockwell, Annette Bening, Josh Gad, Richard Jenkins and Jamie Bell. Director Jordan Peele and actor Daniel Kaluuya will also be on hand for a discussion of their racially-themed horror-satire “Get Out,” a critical hit from earlier this year.

The festival has yet to announce additions to its popular live interview series, “A Conversation With . . . ,” which so far features just one guest, writer-director Rob Reiner.

The festival’s full film lineup, officially announced Monday, includes “Darkest Hour,” an early Oscar contender starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill; “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” based on the real-life romance between a young actor (Bell) and a legendary leading lady (Bening); “Marshall,” a biopic about a young Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman); Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” in which Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler play the sons of a famous artist (Dustin Hoffman); and Todd Haynes’ time-spanning drama “Wonderstruck,” starring Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams.

Margot Robbie to appear on the The Graham Norton Show comeback.

The Graham Norton Show will be returning to screens soon, and a suitably star-studded sofa is being lined up.

The chat show host will return to the BBC on Friday, September 29 at the programme’s regular time slot of 10.35pm.

And he won’t be alone, as he’ll be joined by Blade Runner 2049 stars Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, as well as Margot Robbie and Reese Witherspoon, plus musical guests Bananarama.

Robbie will be there promoting her role in British biopic Goodbye Christopher Robin, while Reese will be promoting her forthcoming Nancy Meyers-produced romantic comedy Home Again.

What a line-up, eh?

First out in cinemas is Witherspoon’s Home Again, which will be in UK theatres on the same day The Graham Norton Show returns on September 29.

The movie – produced by romantic comedy legend Nancy Meyers and written and directed by her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer – follows the adventures of a single mother in Los Angeles who invites three young men to live with her after sleeping with one of them.

Blade Runner 2049 will be coming to screens on October 6, while Robbie’s AA Milne biopic will follow on October 13.

While we doubt any of the guests will be boring, at least Graham will be prepared if they are.

Indeed, speaking on Stephen Colbert’s US chat show last month, Norton revealed exactly how he deals with boring guests on his sofa – and the whole thing is rather inspired.

The Graham Norton Show returns at 10.35pm on September 29 on BBC One.
