Focus Features and Working Title have unveiled the first trailer for the Josie Rourke-directed “Mary Queen of Scots,” the upcoming period drama starring Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan as Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots respectively.
Crowned Queen of Scotland in the 16th century, Mary Stuart was forced to abdicate her throne and soon thereafter was executed at age 18 for her alleged involvement with an assassination attempt on the life of her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I.
Jack Lowden, Martin Compston and Joe Alwyn co-star. “The Tudors” and “Vikings” creator Michael Hirst, who penned Shekhar Kapur’s acclaimed 1998 feature “Elizabeth” and its sequel “Elizabeth: The Golden Age” (which featured Samantha Morton as Mary), penned the script with Josie Rourke directing.
“Mary Queen of Scots” hits cinemas on December 7th.
