Meryl Streep Gears Up for Awards Season in "The Iron Lady" Teaser

Ever since it was announced that Meryl Streep was set to embody Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady,” awards pundits started placing their bets. The Weinstein Company are banking on Streep cleaning up by releasing the Phyllida Lloyd (“Mamma Mia!”) directed drama at the height of awards season in the U.S. on December 16th.

Below get your first glimpse at Streep in action as Great Britain’s ’80s-era maverick Prime Minister. She doesn’t appear until the end of the teaser, but it’s definitely worth waiting for the big reveal.
