Two Queens, One Future in the New Mary Queen of Scots Trailer

Following yesterday’s poster (view below), Focus Features has debuted the new Mary Queen of Scots trailer! Opening in select theaters on December 7, the film stars Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie.

Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Ronan). 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 I (Robbie). 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.

Directed by Josie Rourke (artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse), the film also stars Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Gemma Chan, Martin Compston, Ismael Cordova, Brendan Coyle, Ian Hart, Adrian Lester, James McArdle, with David Tennant, and Guy Pearce.

Beau Willimon (The Ides of March, House of Cards) wrote the script, based on Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart by John Guy. The producers are Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, and Debra Hayward.
