The British monarchy is continuing to fascinate American film and television studios. Focus Features’ upcoming historical film Mary Queen of Scots has delivered a spell-binding trailer. Saoirse Ronan is going to be seen in the titular role of Mary, while Margot Robbie plays the role of her cousin and the Queen of England and Ireland. The trailer begins with Mary observing that England is not very different from Scotland after all. “They are sisters,” the servant accompanying her replies.

This seems to be the saga that the movie is based on. The rivalry between the two queens of two different nations who happen to be real cousins (this should not be surprising as almost all the European royalty members are related to each other in one way or other).

Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie are featuring in the Mary Queen Of Scots trailer. The duo face off as Mary Stuart and Elizabeth I in a twisted story of royal intrigue and personal desires, based on John Guy’s acclaimed biography.

“In a time of kings, two queens rule,” the film helpfully informs us as Queen Mary (Ronan in very believable Scottish brogue) writes to Queen Elizabeth (Margot Robbie in a strictly okay British accent and overblown makeup) that they should rule side-by-side in harmony and not by a treaty drafted by men. “A friendship that became a rivalry. A rivalry that became a war,” the text on screen states.

Both the queens meet in person later (although this never happened in reality), and trade allegations. The movie offers political machinations, brilliant cinematography of the countryside, and at least one battle sequence as the countries go to war. Mary Queen of Scots is scheduled to be released in the United States on December 7, 2018.
