Recently, in celebration of Women in Hollywood, Margot was featured in Elle Magazine (scans to be added sometime in the near future). Elle USA kindly posted on their Instagram shots from Margot’s accompanying photoshoot in the magazine. These have been added to the gallery.

In the interview with Margot, she spoke about working with Martin Scorsese, her various characters on-screen and her new role as Tonya Harding.

Visit the link below to view the photoshoot. This post shall be updated soon with scans of the magazine.

I have now updated the gallery with HQ scans of Margot in Elle USA. These have been kindly donated by Jessica Chastain Network.

Hello Margot fans! Just dropping by to you let you all know that Focus features have set a release date for Margot’s upcoming film “Mary, Queen of Scots”, where she plays opposite Saoirse Ronan. The limited release date is set for November 2, 2018 – read on for more information.

The biography drama MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS will have a November 2 2018 limited release. From artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse comes the story of Mary Stuart. The film is based on John Guy’s novel My Heart is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots which was adapted by Beau Willimon (The Ides of March, House of Cards)

The film stars Saoirse Ronan as the charismatic Mary Stuart, who became Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18. Instead of remarrying, Mary returns to her native home of Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie). Determined to be more than a figurehead, Marry asserts her claim to the throne against Elizabeth I. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies arise as they change the course of history.

Also starring is Guy Pearce, David Tennant, and Jack Lowden while Tim Bevan, Eric Felner and Debra Hayward produce. (Source)

We finally have an official confirmation – ‘I, Tonya’ gets a 2017 release date, qualifying it for the next year’s awards race! The film will open in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 8, with a platform rollout that will continue into January. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news a couple of minutes ago, and you can read it in full below. I have also replaced one of the portraits Margot did for them during the Toronto Film Festival with a high quality version – check it out here.

The Hollywood Reporter – The upstart distributor Neon will open the film in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 8, with a platform rollout continuing into January. I, Tonya, Craig Gillespie’s hilarious and devastating Tonya Harding biopic, is officially joining the race to the 90th Oscars, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The film, which stars Margot Robbie (who also is one of its producers), had its world premiere on Sept. 8 at the Toronto International Film Festival, where, three days later, it became the fest’s highest-profile acquisition, selling to Tom Quinn and Tim League’s Neon for $5 million (over an even larger bid by Netflix).

After catching I, Tonya in Toronto, I wrote: “In the hands of a competent distributor, Robbie could well land a best actress nomination — she wouldn’t be the first beautiful actress to ‘de-glam’ and/or produce her own project and get recognized for doing so (see: Charlize Theron and 2003’s Monster). As for [Allison] Janney, she seems to me like a slam-dunk for a best supporting actress nom [for her portrayal of Harding’s mother] — which would be her first-ever Academy recognition, and hugely deserved.”

With Margot currently promoting ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin‘ and ‘I, Tonya‘, it can be easy to forget just how busy she has been the past few years, and the fact a trailer has been released for another movie shows it!

Although we don’t hear Margot in this specific trailer, we do know that she is playing the character of ‘Flopsy.‘ As fans of the literature classic will know, ‘Flopsy’ is one third of a set of triplets, the other two sisters called ‘Mopsy‘ and ‘Cottontail‘. These two characters are voiced by Elizabeth Debicki and Daisy Ridley, respectively.

It’s also fun to know that, for the third time, Margot will be appearing in a movie with Domhnall Gleeson!

The synopsis details:

Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail. | Source

The Independent has posted an exclusive video, detailing a behind the scenes look of the real life inspiration of Chrisopher Robin. Many people are familiar of the characters of Christopher, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger but the movie itself delves into the story of how those characters were created by A.A. Milne and the inspiration of his son.

The Independent posted this short article alongside the video:

We all know the Christopher Robin who populates the pages of A.A. Milne’s book, the friend to many creatures of the Hundred-Acre Wood.

But what of the real Christopher Robin? More precisely, Christopher Robin Milne, or as his family would often call him, Billy Moon. As a boy, Christopher Robin was gifted a teddy bear he named Edward; this toy, alongside a real Canadian bear named Winnipeg Milne saw at the London Zoo, became the inspiration for Winnie-the-Pooh.

Read the article in it’s entirety here.

I have added screencaps of Margot’s scenes in the video, where she chats about the actor Will Tilston who plays her on-screen son, Christopher.

   

Other news in relation to the movie, is that it shall also be presented at 53rd Chicago International Film Festival, as well as the Hamptons International Film Festival. It shall be screened on the 13th October at 6.00pm. More information can be found here.

The video can be found under the cut due to autoplay.

From one festival to another! Having presented ‘I, Tonya‘ at the Toronto International Film Festival, Margot will soon be headed to the Hamptons International Film Festival.

The festival, which celebrates independent movies and documentaries, shall take place during the period of 5th October – 9th October 2017 in The Hamptons, New York.

I, Tonya‘ shall be played during the closing night (9th October), with showings at 7.00pm and 7.30pm. To book tickets, you can do so at the movie’s page on the HIFF website, however they are not officially on sale as of now. The synopsis of the movie reads as follows:

For many, the revelations following the attack on figure skater Nancy Kerrigan in the lead-up to the 1994 Winter Olympics cemented the legacy of Tonya Harding as one of the most iconic villains in sports history. Craig Gillespie’s at turns hilarious and tragic look at the life of Harding (astonishingly realized by Margot Robbie) flips the script on this sensational narrative—following her from the tumultuous relationship with her abusive mother (Allison Janney) to the absurd moments that led to that fateful night in Cobo Arena. Fueled by a razor-sharp script that doesn’t let anyone in Harding’s orbit out of its sights, I, TONYA is an outrageous and surprising look at the players behind the notorious scandal.

In other news related to HIFF and another of Margot’s upcoming movies, it was announced that ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin‘ was selected as a ‘Friday Centerpiece film in Southampton’ as the North American premiere of the movie on the 6th October.
