AUSTRALIA, RUSSIA, GERMANY & ITALY: Mary Queen Of Scots Released In Cinemas Today


David Tennant's latest movie project, Mary Queen Of Scots, is released in cinemas in Australia, Russia, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Portugal today.

The historical movie from Focus Features stars Saoirse Ronan as Mary and Margot Robbie as her cousin and rival for power, Queen Elizabeth I. The cast includes Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Gemma Chan, Martin Compston, Ismael Cordova, Brendan Coyle, Ian Hart, Adrian Lester, James McArdle and Guy Pearce, while David Tennant appears as the outspoken cleric John Knox. Mary Queen Of Scots is directed by Josie Rourke and written by Academy Award nominee Beau Willimon.


Mary Queen of Scots is a retelling of the turbulent life of Mary Stuart, 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.
