(It's Elizabeth). In Mary Queen of Scotts, Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan) is at odds with her "sister" (technically her first cousin, once removed), Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie).

This gives us the vast pleasure to show off the highly-anticipated trailer, featuring two female protagonists - passing the often-disregarded Bechdel Test with flying colours.

Mary Queen of Scots is released in United Kingdom cinemas on January 18, 2019.

Directed by Jason Rourke, Mary, Queen of Scots promises a healthy dose of sword fighting on horses, fancy corsets, male fragility, and a riveting battle between two powerful women.

The 70th Emmy Awards will telecast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Sunday, September 17 (8 p.m. The 2018 Emmy Awards nominations came out today, and of course, many fan favorites were left off of the list.

Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry following the death of Francis II. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. Ronan plays the titular Scottish queen on a mission to overthrow the presiding English monarchy, while Robbie portrays Elizabeth I, fighting to maintain her spot on the English throne. 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. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history. Watch the Mary Queen of Scots trailer below.

Rourke's take on the material looks both lavish and gritty, with all the production trappings of a major period piece, and some vanity-free performances - particularly from Robbie, whose unravelling Elizabeth becomes increasingly desperate to keep her throne.

Beau Willimon, an Academy Award nominee for The Ides of March and Emmy Award nominee for House of Cards, has written the screenplay adaptation. Saoirse Ronan plays Mary, Margot Robbie plays Elizabeth, with a superb ensemble cast including Gemma Chan, Guy Pearce, Joe Alwyn, David Tennant, Jack Lowden, Brendan Coyle, Martin Compston, Ismael Cruz Cordova, and James McArdle.

Focus Features opens Mary Queen of Scots in select theaters on December 7.
