On this day, February 8, 1587, Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded.
Scarlett Johansson is slated to star in a film about Mary later this year.
But Scarlett will also play Mary Boleyn in The Other Boleyn Girl later this month. And I finally just now saw the trailer for this:
And the point of this blog post is this: Is it just me or is that story a wee bit different than the story laid out in the book? And by “wee bit” I mean “fundamentally” different.
Anyway, the film opens February 28 and I’m going to have to see it. I’m a sucker for Boleyn girls and pretty dresses.
