A Rivalry Becomes A War In The First Trailer For ‘Mary Queen Of Scots’

‘Mary Queen of Scots’¬†explores¬†the¬†turbulent¬†life of¬†the charismatic¬†Mary Stuart. Queen of France at¬†16¬†and¬†widowed¬†at 18, Mary¬†defies pressure to remarry. Instead,¬†she returns¬†to her native Scotland¬†to reclaim her rightful throne.¬†But¬†Scotland and England fall under the rule of¬†the compelling¬†Elizabeth¬†1.¬†¬†Each young Queen¬†beholds¬†her ‚Äúsister‚Ä̬†in fear and fascination.¬†Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence.¬†Determined¬†to rule¬†as much more than a figurehead, Mary¬†asserts¬†her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth‚Äôs sovereignty.¬†Betrayal, rebellion,¬†and conspiracies within each court¬†imperil both thrones ‚Äď and change the course of history.
