I, Tonya | Limited release December 8 2017 | Margot Robbie stars in biopic directed by Craig Gillespie (d. of Mr. Woodcock, 2007) | going for them oscars and what not

Recommended Posts




In December, MoviePass announced that they’d signed a marketing and distribution deal with a mysterious “independent movie distribution company,” and now we have a pretty good idea of what that company is: Neon, the distribution company co-founded by Alamo Drafthouse head Tim League. Neon was formed in the early days of 2017, and quickly became a major player in the distribution game; over the last year alone, they released movies like Ingrid Goes West, Beach Rats, The Bad Batch, Borg vs. McEnroe, Colossal, and I, Tonya – the latter of which is the subject of one of MoviePass’s first major advertising pushes.


In a new e-mail sent to members, MoviePass praises Craig Gillespie’s Tonya Harding biopic/crime film by citing positive reviews from professional film critics and a random MoviePass member. After explaining the film’s premise and who stars in it, the e-mail goes on to offer ten 12-month MoviePasses as a prize for its membership. Here’s the relevant info:

We are giving one person ten annual MoviePass subscriptions, to be given to anyone of your choosing. See I, TONYA in theaters by Friday night and automatically enter to win ten 12-month MoviePasses. No catch here. See the film and we’ll automatically enter you. Winner will be notified by January 15th.

Is winning ten more MoviePass subscriptions a tantalizing prospect for people who already have a subscription themselves? Will winners be able to cancel their own paid subscription and replace it with one of the free subscriptions they just won, or will they be penalized with a nine month suspension if they cancel their original paid plan? Oh well – at least they’re not asking people to jump through hoops to enter; if you see I, Tonya in theaters, you’re automatically in contention for the prizes. But considering how MoviePass has actually shown a proven track record when it comes to improving a film’s performance at the box office, it seems like Neon may get their money’s worth out of this deal.

Well...that's certainly a giveaway.

I saw it,loved it.

Margot Robbie,  Alison Janney, and Sebastian Stan are all incredible, and the film strikes a nice balance between the very funny black comedy  dealing with how incredibly inept the Nancy Kerrigan plot was, and the more serious issues of abuse.  A really good film I hope finds an audience.
