UK: European Premiere Of Mary Queen Of Scots Takes Place Next Week In London



The much anticipated historical drama Mary Queen Of Scots will have its European premiere in London next week on Monday 10th December at Cineworld Leicester Square in London. The Oscar-tipped epic stars Saoirse Ronan as the titular Mary with Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth I. David Tennant stars as the outspoken Scottish preacher John Knox. The film is set to be released in the UK on Friday 18th January.

All three stars are named as expected attendees at the red carpet gala next week, as are co-stars Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Gemma Chan, Martin Compston, Adrian Leicester, James McArdle and Guy Pearce along with director Josie Rourke.


Mary Queen of Scots is a retelling of the turbulent life of Mary Stuart, written by Beau Willimon based on the book “Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart” by Dr. John Guy. Queen of France at 16, at 18 Mary is widowed, defies pressure to remarry and instead returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. By birth, Mary has a rival claim to the throne of Elizabeth I, who rules as England’s Queen. Contrary to earlier accounts, and based on Dr. John Guy’s research, we see Mary as a capable politician and leader who wanted an alliance with her cousin Elizabeth. Mary fights to govern her unruly kingdom at a time when female monarchs are reviled as monstrous. To secure their thrones, the two Queens make very different choices about marriage and children. Mary’s reputation is under continual attack from her enemies, who construct lies about her sexual conduct. Betrayal, rebellion and conspiracies within each court imperil both Queens – driving them apart, as each woman experiences the bitter cost of power. 

The film is produced by Focus Features and Working Title Films. Mary Queen Of Scots goes on limited release in the USA from this Friday, 7th December.
