This is the first glimpse of Saoirse Ronan in the title role of 'Mary, Queen Of Scots'.

Margot Robbie stars opposite her as Elizabeth I in the Working Titles film, which follows the turbulent life of Mary Stuart, who was Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18.

Ronan sports a magnificent, full-skirted, period gown and a corseted bodice, with long red hair plaited beautifully over her shoulder.

Based on John Guy's biography, 'My Heart Is My Own: The Life Of Mary Queen Of Scots', the film explores the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth, who ruled over England and Scotland.

It marks Josie Rourke's feature directorial debut, with the screenplay adaptation written by Oscar-winning Beau Willimon.

'Dunkirk' actor Jack Lowden, 'Line Of Duty's' Martin Compston and 'Downton Abbey's' Brendan Coyle also star alongside David Tennant and Guy Pearce.

Filming is now taking place on location in both England and Scotland, with the movie set for release next year.
