It’s a Royal Rivalry in the First ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ Trailer

The first trailer for Mary Queen of Scots has arrived and after a first watch, I think that it’s safe to say that Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan have once again reserved themselves two seats at this year’s Oscars! The historical drama follows Saoirse Ronan in the titular role of Mary Stuart and Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth I.

The two cousins embark on a heated journey as Mary returns to Scotland to reclaim her rightful heir to the throne, but Scotland and England both fall under the rule of Elizabeth I.

What starts out as a camaraderie with intentions of ruling harmoniously alongside each other, soon turns into a rivalry, and eventually leads to war as Mary asserts her claim to the throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty.

It’s got all of the things you love about a period piece, including brilliant costumes:
