They were two colossal figures. Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I of England waged for supremacy in a male dominated world, but only one could know ultimate power and this story of bitter political intrigue is about ready to be brought to the big screen in Mary, Queen of Scots.
The new trailer is here and it is packed with period rich detail and intense showdown:
Mary Stuart’s, Queen of Scotland (Saoirse Ronan) attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England (Margot Robbie) finds both monarchs in a battle for supremacy that will define two nation states and lead to one of history’s most infamous deaths.
Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie face-off here as two queens vying for power in a dangerous politically and religiously charged powder keg where there can be only one true power. While the film displays a sense of sisterhood between the two monarchs it is radically apparent that neither is prepared to be the better to the other and only one will reign supreme as history was to record.
The period rich detail is breathtaking to behold and for those seeking a certain swashbuckling flair, well you’ll get it here as the film charts Mary’s rebellion known as the Rising of the North and Elizabeth’s quick response to crush the rebellion and its vicious aftermath which would change the fate of two nations forever.
Mary, Queen of Scots will be released in cinemas on January 17, 2018.
