One was born to fight, the other was born to power. Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) stars as Mary Stuart opposite Margot Robbie (I, Tonya) who portrays Queen Elizabeth I in the Focus Features and Working Title Films production of Mary, Queen of Scots. New posters highlighting the characters have been released, and you can check them out now in the gallery below! Look for the first trailer for the film to debut tomorrow!

Mary, Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. 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 1. 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.

The cast also includes Jack Lowden (DunkirkEngland is Mine), Joe Alwyn (The Sense of an EndingBilly Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk), Martin Compston (Sweet SixteenLine of Duty), Gemma Chan (Captain Marvel), Ismael Cordova (The Catch), Ian Hart (The Terror), Adrian Lester (Riviera), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Brendan Coyle (Downton AbbeyMe Before You).
