New: Full movie trailer of Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady"

You've already seen a short preview on this blog of the forthcoming movie, "The Iron Lady," about British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher--and read about the speech that gave her that nickname in our own "Famous Speech Friday" series. Now, with the movie premiere around the corner in early 2012, you can get a look at the movie's full-length trailer and the first photo released from the production, which stars Meryl Streep as Thatcher (see right).

Because public speaking was such a big part of Thatcher's political career, the movie promises many scenes that recreate not only her speeches, but how her advisers prepared her for them--and how she took control of her own public image and speaking style. Reviewers are already describing the role as another in which Streep appears to become the character she's playing.

You can keep up with the news on the UK official blog for the movie. Here's the full-length trailer, below. Will you go see this film?
