Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in New Trailer for The Iron Lady

Posted by & filed under SFW, Video.

While the previous trailer was really only a teaser, The Weinstein Company has now released the 2nd trailer for “The Iron Lady” (see below) in which Meryl Streep portrays Great Britain’s fearless prime minister, Margaret Thatcher.

That Thatcher fully occupies this role is, as usual, an understatement, much like Helen Mirren‘s incarnation of Queen Elizabeth II in “Queen,” for which Mirren won her Oscar.

As if Meryl Streep was incapable of doing any wrong anyway, she looks likely to pick up another Oscar nomination for this performance, and time will tell whether she has what it takes to get past Michelle Williams as Marilyn, or Tilda Swinton as the mother of a murderous schoolchild.

If it helps voters at all, it was previously reported that the greatest actress of her generation is donating the majority of her paycheck from the film to the National Women’s History Museum.
