The film centers on the rival monarchs Mary of Scotland and Elizabeth of England. Mary Stuart returns to her native land at age 18 after her husband, the king of France, dies. She tries to rule in Scotland, but there are tensions with her cousin Elizabeth.
“In a time of Kings, two Queens rule,” reads the trailer, while you can hear two men speak, “How did the world come to this… Wise men servicing the whims of women…”
“My dear cousin Elizabeth, I hope we might meet in person, that I might embrace you. But ruling side-by-side we must do so in harmony, not through a treaty drafted by men lesser than ourselves,” Mary’s character says in the trailer.
With both Oscar nominated actors rivaling in the trailer, Margot and Saoirse might in fact compete against each other in real life for a Best Actress nod in the upcoming Oscar season.
Mary Queen of Scots is set to release on December 7, 2018.
