Must Watch: First Teaser Trailer for 'The Iron Lady' with Meryl Streep
"The pearls, however, are absolutely non-negotiable!" Amidst some early Oscar buzz from Deadline's Pete Hammond, the first teaser trailer for Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher, has hit the web. It comes from HeyUGuys but it looks as if it were debuted during a talk show in the UK. In addition to an amusing and unforgettable introduction to Streep as Thatcher, we get a glimpse at Roger Allam and Anthony Head in the film, but not Jim Broadbent, who plays her husband Denis. It's also a great use of some of Clint Mansell's score for Moon. This teaser definitely has me intrigued, that's for sure.
Watch the first teaser trailer for Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady via HeyUGuys:
Written by award-winning writer Abi Morgan (Sex Traffic, Brick Lane), directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia), The Iron Lady tells the compelling story of Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990, a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in the male-dominated world of politics. The story concerns power and the price that is paid for power, and is a surprising and intimate portrait of an extraordinary and complex woman. The Weinstein Company recently scheduled The Iron Lady for a strong awards release starting December 16th later this year. Teased yet?
