Mary, Queen of Scots Trailer Released
Mary Queen of Scots is an upcoming British historical drama film directed by Josie Rourke and written by Beau Willimon. It is based on John Guy‘s biography My Heart Is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots. The film stars Saoirse Ronan as the titular character with Margot Robbie, Jack Lowden, David Tennant, Martin Compston, Joe Alwyn, Brendan Coyle and Guy Pearce. The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on 7 December 2018, and in the United Kingdom on 18 January 2019.
The anticipation for this film has been building and building. Questions being asked like: Is Margot Robbie the best choice to place Elizabeth? After watching this trailer I’m impressed as how both women truly seem to encompass the female monarchs, the “sisters”.
I only have a couple of complaints after seeing this:
1. Elizabeth and Mary NEVER met in person
2. Mary would not have had such a strong Scottish accent. She was in France from the time she was like 5 until about 18 – she most likely would have had a strong French accent.
Take a watch and tell me your thoughts on this trailer.
Don’t think I’ll be able to watch it because of the nonsense about them meeting and the stupid Scottish accent. Couldn’t watch The Tudors for the same reason.
I don’t know what bothers me more, Mary’s Scottish accent or Elizabeth’s somewhat American one.
As I love this period in history I will watch it. However the accent would have been French and as said previously they NEVER met, Two really annoying features. But I judge it once I have watched it.
I know it’s not accurate but I will still watch it.
I’ll wait until I see it to give my thoughts, but, I do think that Kate Blanchard (sp) played the best Queen Elizabeth.
I agree entirely with your points. I also think Elizabeth looks too old, but who can be sure. Mary did believe the English crown was hers by right too. Not sure if I’ll watch this.
I agree with the points you have made.
Mary had an extraordinary life. It would be great if it was portrayed accurately instead of having events that never happenned.
I can forgive the accent, but the highly inaccurate relationship between Mary and Elizabeth is maddening. I know it was written this way for dramatic purposes, but I think it’s much more fascinating that they never met.
Here we go again! Vanessa Redgrave & Glenda Jackson met in a clearing decades ago. Drove me nuts then & drives ne nuts now But, it is Hollywood . They can’t help it.
