    The first teaser trailer for Luc Besson's upcoming biographic movie about the Burmese political activist and lady of democracy Aung San Suu Kyi has been released. The teaser offers nothing much but an introductory of an epic in the making. Watch the trailer right after the jump.

    The year-end race for the award season just get piled up with yet another potential (at least superficially) in the making. Joining the likes of potential award-winning biography movie, Luc Besson comes with 'The Lady', a movie about the struggle for love and democracy for the popular Burmese political figure. Suu Kyi is played by Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh. She will be joining Leonardo DiCaprio (as J. Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar) and Meryl Streep (as Margaret Thatcher in Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady) for the biopic drama-race in the coming months.

    Besson's film will spend much of the running time instigating Suu Kyis relationship with her long-distance husband Michael Aris, as portrayed by David Thewlis (Harry Potter's Remus Lupin). The plot synopsis is as follows:
    "This is the story of Aung San Suu Kyi and her husband, Michael Aris. Despite distance, long separations, and a dangerously hostile regime, their love endures until the very end. A story of devotion and human understanding set against a background of political turmoil which continues today. The film also is the story of the peaceful quest of the woman who is at the core of Burma’s democracy movement."

    Here's the teaser trailer for The Lady:

    Though no official release date is planned for the United States and Malaysia release yet, 'The Lady' is scheduled for release on October 2011 in Europe.
