THE IRON LADY full U.K. trailer

It's not a huge secret that those of us here at WDYMS adore Meryl Streep. She's THE movie star of her generation, and apparently it's a widely regarded fact that she's super hot (or so my cohort tells me).

So, it's pretty much fact that most projects she touches turn to gold, and it appears that her latest film, THE IRON LADY, will be no different. The biopic will follow the rise of former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. Now, I have no doubt Meryl will be brilliant and probably nab her 17th Oscar nomination. However, it'll be interesting to see how the director, Phyllida Lloyd, who directed Streep in MAMMA MIA!, is able to pull off this story because it is tonally so different than what I'm expecting this biopic to be.

Time will tell if Lloyd can pull off a drama, but take a look at Streep, who's almost unrecognizable, in the trailer below.

THE IRON LADY starring Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent will be released in New York and Los Angeles on December 30, 2011 and wide on January 12, 2012
