Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan Go To War in MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS Trailer
The first trailer for Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan's film Mary Queen of Scots has arrived and this looks like a great movie! It looks like both actresses are going to give incredible performances.
Saoirse Ronan is playing Mary Stuart, the Queen of France who, at the age of 18, defied pressure to remarry following her husband’s death and instead returned to her native Scotland to reclaim her throne. This is where she comes up against Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), who rules over both England and Scotland, and the two fiercely engage in a battle for the throne. Here's the synopsis:
Mary, Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth 1. Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.
British theater director Josie Rourke directed the film from a screenplay written by Beau Willimon. The film also stars Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Gemma Chan, Martin Compston, Ismael Cordova, Brendan Coyle, Ian Hart, Adrian Lester, James McArdle, David Tennant, and Guy Pearce.
Mary Queen of Scots opens in limited release on December 7th.
