Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in new teaser trailer [Video]
We got a first glance at Streep, tapped to play former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, in her finery in February. A new video features Meryl doing what Meryl does best: accents and costumes, and showing the men in the room how it's done.
The quick clip shows two male advisers recommending Thatcher shed her pearls and, ahem, high-pitched voice to better ascend to power in Britain. Watch below and see how well that goes over.
"The Iron Lady" will hit theaters in mid-December, at the height of nomination time.
