Meryl Streep as Maggie: The Iron Lady teaser trailer hits the web

14 July 2011 by Francesca Steele

Pictures of Meryl Streep thick with make-up and hairspray as Margaret Thatcher in the upcoming biopic The Iron Lady were circulated earlier this year, prompting much speculation that Streep will be in line for one of next year's Oscars. And now a very fun teaser trailer is here, giving us just the briefest glimpse of a pre-fame Maggie.

Love her or hate her, this still looks like one of the Capote-esque biopics where a flawless impersonation goes a long way.

The Iron Lady is scheduled for release in UK cinemas in January.
