Directed by Craig Gillespie, the film follows the real-life rivalry between Tonya and fellow US skater, Nancy Kerrigan and the memorable 1994 incident when Tonya's ex-husband tried to sabotage Nancy's chances at the Winter Olympics.

Margot has previously spoken about what it took to transform into Tonya, saying she was reduced to tears while filming.

The rigorous training schedule required her to train for five days a week for four months.

"I kept my ice skates – but I said goodbye to a whole work of pain that I didn’t realise came along with figure skating," she recently told W Magazine.

When it came down to training, her choreographer never had any sympathy to offer her but when Margot had a "real skater fall" she was allowed "a minute".

"I was so proud, with tears streaming down my face."

The film hits cinemas around Australia on Febuary 15, 2018.
