Why Margot Robbie's film "I,Tonya" adapted so strange in Russia?

Actress Margot Robbie appeared in a rather unusual role. Performing role of the notorious athlete, she was surprised by not only the skeptics who thought that the girl does not know how to play, but the Russian fans. And all because of a strange adaptation of the film's title.

Star of "The Wolf of Wall Street" and "Suicide Squad" Margot Robbie starred in the drama about the figure skater Tonya Harding. The film tells the story of the athlete, who persuaded her ex-husband to break opponent's leg before the competition.

The film, which in the original is called "I, Tonya," based on real events. It is based on a career of American figure skater Tonya Harding, who became the first American, which carried out a triple axel in competition.

Athlete's glory was quite scandalous. Tonya often argue with the judges and often invented reasons to perform the program again, if something did not work. However, the most famous was the attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan in 1994.

Then, before the performance at the US Championships in Detroit, sportswoman's ex-husband and her bodyguard persuaded a friend to break right leg of Tonya's competitor, so she could not perform.

Forward found Nancy in Detroit and hit the leg by telescopic baton. Then Tonya Harding won the US championship and got into the Olympic team. However, we don't want spoilers.

Margot Robbie, who played Tonya, deserved compliments from viewers immediately after the trailer was unveiled.

Many were convinced that the film helped the actress to show her talent.

"Margot Robbie has just a pretty face, but she did not know how to play. Say it again? "

The talent of people adapting film for Russian viewers was appreciated much less. The film, which is precisely called "I, Tonya" have been called the "Icy Bitch."

Yes, not only at "Kinopoisk", but also in the media, too. For example, in "Rossiyskaya Gazeta".

Russian viewers have already started splashing out their anger in social networks, genuinely wondering why?


According to Medialeaks,  it's a matter of local distributors - to adapt or not. And so do distributors in all countries.

The film was like "I, Tonya," so it is. But Distributors decided that people bite "Ice bitch" better. If th e title of the film doesn't include the word "gang," "3D ', and so on, then people will not watch it.
