Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan shine in new ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ trailer

The second trailer for Mary Queen of Scots is big on the drama, which Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan more than deliver in this new trailer.

Mary Queen of Scots is a new period film depicting the tumultuous relationship and struggle for power between Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart, better known as Mary Queen of Scots. The film has Margot Robbie playing Queen Elizabeth and Saoirse Ronan taking on the role of Mary, and after watching the new trailer for the movie, we are so excited to see both actors deliver truly powerhouse performances.

Most people are somewhat aware of the real-life struggle for power between Mary Stuart and Queen Elizabeth, and Mary Stuart’s attempt to overthrow the English throne that ultimately led to her imprisonment and execution. However, most of us only know the bloody highlights of their fight for power without knowing what ultimately led them to the place of an attempted overthrow and execution. Theirs is a story of political intrigue, betrayal, power, and corruption, and we are so ready to see this female-led movie deliver a powerful (albeit dramatized) take on two of the most powerful women in history.

However, this movie isn’t just starring two amazing women, Mary Queen of Scots is directed by the highly talented Josie Rourke. Though this is Rourke’s feature film directorial debut, she’s no stranger to the director’s chair. Rourke has directed several West End plays, including the well-loved Much Ado About Nothing starring our favorite besties David Tennant (who, incidentally, is also in Mary Queen of Scots) and Catherine Tate.

All in all, Mary Queen of Scots is shaping up to be a great movie. With two amazing actresses leading the film and a talented director behind the camera, this is sure to be a historical drama that you won’t want to miss.

Mary Queen of Scots premieres in theaters on December 7.
