Directed by Josie Rourke and starring Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie, ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ is one of our most highly-anticipated films and we’ve FINALLY been treated to a first look trailer of the film.
Depicting the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Ronan), ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ showcases the true story of how Stuart became Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18 and then defied pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne.
But, Scotland and England have changed since and now fall under the rule of Elizabeth I (Robbie). 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.
The stylistic film will be released in January and will also star Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Gemma Chan, David Tennant, and Guy Pearce.
Take a watch of the trailer below and count down the days till the film is released!
