The Iron Lady written by Abi Morgan and directed by Phyllida Lloyd continued its expansion and rolled out on over 800 screens grossing over $5 million. It has now taken in over $7 million in the US and $11 million abroad. This is just more confirmation of the star status of Meryl Streep. The woman can open a movie even with mixed reviews and with the awards coming and an Oscar nomination assured for next week, this film will continue to do very well for weeks to come.
