Meryl Streep in striking “Iron Lady” poster – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It’s one of the few great unknowns in this year’s Oscar season. How will audiences (and, more important, Academy voters) take to Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady?”

Though the film skipped the fall film festival circuit, most of us assume that Streep has an excellent shot at getting into the awards race just by showing up. Playing an historical figure only helps her chances at securing a nomination. But are we putting the cart way before the horse?

We won’t know for sure until we see the film. In the meantime, an official poster beautifully marrying Streep’s visage to London’s Parliament has been posted on Yahoo Movies! We have it below.

“The Iron Lady” co-stars Jim Broadbent, Alexandra Roach, Harry Lloy, Olivia Colman, Nicholas Farrell, Susan Brown, Roger Allam, Anthony Head, Julian Wadham, Pip Torrens, Nick Dunning, Richard E Grant, David Westhead, Angus Wright and John Sessions.

It will be in theaters on Dec. 16.
