First trailer of new Mary Queen of Scots movie is released

Mary Queen of Scots

With thanks to secret on-location shots, drastic makeovers and Hollywood's love affair with young prodigy Saoirse Ronan - the long-awaited Mary, Queen of Scots has gained quite a substantial amount of hype over the past few months.

One can never expect either of these two actresses to play it safe, and indeed, their brief confrontation within the trailer promises that, at the very least, this film should take its subject more seriously than CW's recent teen-soap, Reign. Mary Queen Of Scots arrives in theaters on December 7.

Mary Queen of Scots is set for an 18 January release in the United Kingdom - so it seems like this could be a real Oscar contender come 2019.

Based on John Guy's biography, My Heart Is My Own: The Life Of Mary Queen Of Scots, the film explores the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth who rules over England and Scotland. However, Scotland and England at the time are under the rule of Elizabeth I. This sees the two queens become bitter rivals, attempting to prove important in a masculine world.

Josie Rourke, artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse, makes her feature directorial debut on the movie.

Coming off the heels of her third Oscar nomination for Lady Bird, Saoirse Ronan is trading in her Catholic school uniform for a corset in Mary Queen of Scots. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Such is the case with Mary Queen of Scots and the first trailer definitely feels like the kind of thing that could generate a lot of buzz later this year. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history. The script comes from Beau Willimon, who serves as showrunner on Netflix's House of Cards and previously penned the screenplay for The Ides of March.

Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Gemma Chan, Martin Compston, Ismael Cordova, Brendan Coyle, Ian Hart, Adrian Lester, James McArdle, with David Tennant, and Guy Pearce also star.
