New Trailer For Mary Queen of Scots

Focus Features has released a new trailer for Mary Queen of Scots, the upcoming historical drama starring Academy Award-nominated actresses Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) as Mary Stuart and Margot Robbie (I, Tonya) as Queen Elizabeth I.

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.

The cast also includes Jack Lowden (Dunkirk), Joe Alwyn (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk), Martin Compston (Sweet Sixteen), Gemma Chan (Crazy Rich Asians), Ismael Cordova (The Catch), Ian Hart (The Terror), Adrian Lester (Riviera), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey, Me Before You). Also featuring in the cast are David Tennant (Doctor Who, Broadchurch) and Guy Pearce (Memento, LA Confidential).

Josie Rourke, artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse, makes her feature directorial debut on the movie. The producers of Mary, Queen of Scots are Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, and Debra Hayward, all Academy Award nominees as producers of Best Picture Oscar nominee Les Misérables.

Beau Willimon, an Academy Award nominee for The Ides of March and Emmy Award nominee for House of Cards, has written the screenplay adaptation. Mary, Queen of Scots is based on John Guy’s acclaimed biography My Heart is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots.

Mary, Queen of Scots is set for a limited release on December 7 in New York and Los Angeles and will open everywhere on December 21.
