“MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS BREATHES FEMINIST FIRE INTO HISTORY” – PETER TRAVERS, ROLLING STONE

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL FEBRUARY 19, 2019 AND ON 4K ULTRA HD, BLU-RAY™ AND DVD FEBRUARY 26, 2019 FROM UNIVERSAL PICTURES HOME ENTERTAINMENT

Two powerful Queens battle for one throne in the riveting and extraordinary drama based on a true story, Mary Queen of Scots, arriving on Digital and the digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE on February 19, 2018 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on February 26, 2019, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.  A chronicle of two strong woman pitted against each other in an age of male dominance, the 16th century tale showcases “bold performances” (Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press) from Academy Award® nominees Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) and Margot Robbie (I, Tonya) in their roles as Mary I of Scotland and  Elizabeth I of England. Filled with manipulation, betrayal and deceit from start to finish, Mary Queen of Scots also features an outstanding supporting cast including Guy Pearce (The King’s Speech), Jack Lowden (Dunkirk), Joe Alwyn (Boy Erased) and David Tennant (“Doctor Who”).

Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Ronan). Queen of France at 16, widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry and instead returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. By birth, she also has a rival claim to the throne of Elizabeth I (Robbie), who rules as the Queen of England. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Rivals in power and love, the two Queens make very difficult choices about marriage and children. Betrayal, rebellion and conspiracies within each court imperil both Queens-driving them apart, as each women experiences the bitter cost of power.

Hailed by critics as “cleverly entertaining” (Stephanie Zacharek, Time), Mary Queen of Scots on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital comes packed with captivating bonus features including a fascinating and compelling commentary by actors and filmmakers as well as exclusive featurettes that will take viewers on a beautiful behind-the-scenes journey into the making of this remarkable film.
