Back in March, it was announced that Meryl Streep would star in The Post, a new film about the Washington Post's legal battle to publish the Pentagon Papers in 1971.

The three-time Oscar winner will play the paper's then-publisher Katharine Graham, who, alongside executive editor Ben Bradlee, made the decision to run a series of articles about the classified Defense Department study on the United States' military involvement in Vietnam. Bradlee will be portrayed in the film by Tom Hanks.

This week, we got our first look at Streep's portrayal of Graham in a photo taken on-set:
