Mary Queen of Scots Blu-Ray Screen Captures


Hello everyone! Margot’s latest film “Mary Queen of Scots” was released on Blu-Ray today (check out our previous post for more information on how to purchase it), and I just picked up my own copy. I have therefore updated our gallery with screen captures from the film – just over 1000 in total! Margot played Queen Elizabeth I opposite Saoirse Ronan as Mary, and I thought both girls really killed it. Her brilliant performance earned Margot nominations for both a SAG Award and BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actress! If you haven’t seen the film yet, make sure to purchase your own copy and check it out.

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 I. 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.

‘Mary Queen Of Scots’: Margot Robbie & Saoirse Ronan On Separation, Smallpox & The Power Behind The Female Throne


Hello Margot fans! At the beginning of the year, Deadline shared a great new interview with Margot and Saoirse Ronan. They discuss ‘Mary Queen of Scots’, upcoming projects and their choice of characters! You can read it in full below, and find a stunning new photoshoot outtake which accompanied the article over in our galleries at this link.

Deadline | The real Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart probably never met. But when you cast a film with Margot Robbie as Elizabeth, and Saoirse Ronan as Mary, it seems only right that they come together, if only for one scene. Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots may briefly put the two monarchs face-to-face, but otherwise, staying true to the characters’ separate lives, Ronan and Robbie didn’t meet on set at all until they were on camera together—a decision Ronan calls a mutual “experiment”—and one that turned out to perfectly serve a tale of rivalry, isolation and oppressed female power.

Saoirse, you signed on to play Mary six years ago, but what did you know about this story going into it?

Saoirse Ronan: I didn’t know much, really. I learned a very small amount about Mary Queen of Scots when I was in school, and there was so much about her that had been entered into the history books that just wasn’t really true. So my perception of her was that she was this young girl who was way in over her head and didn’t really know how to rule, and consequently, she got executed eventually, which of course isn’t the real story at all. So when I finally did start to do research when I signed on to do the film years ago, I realized she came from a very well-respected yet very fiery family, the Stuarts, who had been ruling for hundreds of years. It was very exciting to know that there was another side to the story that hadn’t been told.

Margot Robbie: I knew very little. I had an image of Elizabeth in my mind, the way we see her at the end of this film with the white face and the red lips and elaborate dresses. That tableau existed in my mind but I had very little context for it, so I really was starting at the beginning, and Josie was incredible at helping me put together a timeline, and gave me a catch-up of the history up until that point. It was fascinating because I just thought about the time period in a very different way. I’d assumed Elizabeth must have had a very easy life as a monarch, and quickly discovered that being a monarch actually meant your life was constantly in danger. And I think for Elizabeth that knowledge was deep-seated, and grew into paranoia over the years. You get to see that in the film as she does play her hand very cautiously. She is constantly calculating and mitigating the risks.
