I love historical drama!  And let’s face it, when we’re talking real historical drama, the Mary/Elizabeth rivalry is definitely high drama. So I can’t wait to see how Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie do Mary and Elizabeth!

These posters look fantastic, and I love the colors that draw the line between the two. Here’s all the details so far, straight from the studio:

Story: “Mary Queen of Scots” explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Ronan). 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 I (Robbie).  Each young Queen beholds her “sister” 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’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.
