Big Ben and Margaret Thatcher Collide on First Poster for 'Iron Lady'
We've already gotten a first look at Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady with the actress fully transformed into Margaret Thatcher, a woman who rose to become the first woman to lead a major Western democracy. She won three successive General Elections and served as British Prime Minister for more than eleven years, a record unmatched in the 20th century. The teaser trailer gave us a taste of her promising, and likely Oscar-worthy performance, and now we have a cool poster for the film which juxtaposes an image of Streep as Thatcher along with Big Ben and the United Kingdom's Parliament in London. See it below .
Here's the teaser poster for Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady via Yahoo! Movies (click for a larger version):
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?

Nice! That's pretty cool actually. I won't lie. But, is it just me or is there tons of British leaders/royalty movies coming out lately? Kings Speech, Young Victoria....
