Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie are battling queens in the true story of the royals in MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS. Judging from the performances in the new trailer, there's no doubt these two leading ladies will be up for awards this upcoming award season, and releasing it in December is a sure fire way to do it.
Leave it to the men to incite war in MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS between Scotland's Mary Stuart and England's Queen Elizabeth I as they duel for the English crown. The new preview is certainly riveting, and it's a film to look forward to for the performance and drama between two strong-willed women.
"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.
