Meryl Streep, as the former British prime minister. (Via Film School Reject)

This international trailer touts a January 2012 release date for the film, but “The Iron Lady” is currently slated for release here in the U.S. in December, making it perfectly eligible for Oscar consideration. If Streep does get nominated — which is a big assumption at this point, but not that big when you consider the fact that we’re talking about Meryl Streep — it would count as her 17th Academy Award nod.
