Chris Pine will be among the stars of Outlaw King at the film’s Scottish premiere in Edinburgh.

The biopic depicts the story of how Robert the Bruce led 500 men to defeat the larger and better equipped English army.

At its European premiere in London on Wednesday, the American actor told how he had watched YouTube videos of a Scottish rugby captain to develop his accent for the role of the 14th century warrior and king.
