The film boasts two Oscar nominees in Ronan and co-star Margot Robbie
The first piece of footage from Mary Queen of Scots is out and it definitively paints itself as a possible Oscar contender.
Lady Bird star and Irish darling Saoirse Ronan plays the titular character. Set in the 16th century, it explores the relationship and fallout between Scotland's Queen Mary Stewart and England's Queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie).
And guess what? The friendship turned rather sour when Queen Mary tried overthrowing Elizabeth.
