teaser trailer for aung san suu kyi biopic the lady

Yahoo! Movies just dropped the new teaser trailer for The Lady, the upcoming movie biopic based on the life of Burmese democracy leader, political prisoner and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, directed by Luc Besson and starring Michelle Yeoh. This is the film that got Michelle Yeoh blacklisted and banned from entering Myanmar. Take a look:

At just fifty seconds, it's a true teaser, and we barely get to see a glimpse of Michelle Yeoh as the titular lady. But you get a sense of the scale that the movie's going for. Luc Besson would not have been my first choice to tell the story of the figure at the center of Burma's struggle for democracy, but there you go.

The Lady is scheduled to have its world premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival. A theatrical release date has not yet been set.
