Check out the very first trailer and poster that Focus Features has released for their upcoming film, VICTORIA & ABDUL, starring Dame Judi Dench playing Queen Victoria for a second time after 1997’s Mrs. Brown.

This extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s (Dench) remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favor with the Queen herself. As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy.
