Calling all royal redheads (that’s all of you, you lovely people)! We hope you were paying attention when the new trailer for Mary Queen of Scots dropped recently – did you spot the double whammy of gingerness?
The movie trailer gives us plenty of drama, romance, action, and flaming red hair to boot (in that particular Elizabethan style we all adore), as we are given too-brief glimpses of a classic story that will surely take us on a rollercoaster of a ride.
Let’s remind you of the epic history behind the movie. As redhead Mary Stuart (played by Saoirse Ronan) returns to her homeland of Scotland to take her rightful place as Queen, her cousin, the equally gingerful Queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), gains rule over England and Scotland.
At first, they are both fascinated and intimidated by each other’s red hair (probably), but in particular, the power the other has over their lands. Mary Stuart attempts to overthrow Queen Elizabeth I from the English throne, causing them to vie to prove their claim to lead the monarchy.
Ronan (above, left) and Robbie (above, right) captivate us in their roles showing us their power and grit, and we can hardly wait to see each compelling line of dialogue. The film also brings together other notable players including Gemma Chan, David Tennant, Joe Alwyn, and Guy Pearce.
We’re on the edge of our seats with every cut of this ginger-dominated trailer, and the film’s release date of 7 December cannot come soon enough! Check out the trailer below…
