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 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.

The DC Extended Universe can be a confusing place, and it isn’t just fans who feel a bit lost with the franchise. Margot Robbie recently opened up about when she’ll next don Harley Quinn’s pigtails, but the star isn’t sure what she will be doing it for.

The Wrap caught up with Robbie this weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the topic of Harley Quinn came up. When asked about her upcoming film schedule, the actress did say she would be getting back into the DC role quite soon.

“I think next year I’ll be back in the fishnets [and] wielding a baseball bat,” Said Robbie.

However, when she was asked if the appearance would be for DC’s Joker & Harley Quinn spin-off, the actress was less certain.

“You’re guess is as good as mine at this point. I don’t know.”
