Lots of television programmes and news outlets have aired their interviews with Meryl Streep about “The Iron Lady” today. All interviews were conducted at the UK or US press junkets for the film. There’s also a funny segment from French television on the Paris premiere of the film. A list of the latest additions can be found below the previews.

The Weinstein Co. has created a series of unusual campaign-style posters to promote the film online and possibly in print as well. The intentionally defaced ads play off the idea that not everyone was in love with Thatcher in her home country, embracing the controversy she stirred in England, not shying away from it. It might seem odd to promote a film with an ad campaign that seems to disparage the movie’s subject, but it’s very much a play on Thatcher’s thorny relationship with many in her country during the time she served as prime minister (article courtesy Politico). Another new poster, probably for its wide release in the USA, has been added as well.

Also, with thanks to Frank for the heads-up, Meryl has been awarded Best Actress for “The Iron Lady” by the Denver Film Critics Society and has received a nomination as Best International Actress for the Irish Film and Television Award. Congratulations!

Two additional clips from “The Iron Lady” have been added, one featuring the older Margaret, discussing recent politics at a dinner party, the second is a larger excerpt fro a previously posted clip in which Margaret talks to Denis and thinks back to her active political time. Then, there’s a lenghty interview from the press junket in London – as conducted by Danish television (thanks to Anna for guiding this to me). Enjoy the new clips.
