'August: Osage County' Poster Asks, Who Would Win in a Fight: Julia Roberts or Meryl Streep?

Question of the day, brought to you by this brand-new new poster for August: Osage County: If Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts were to get into a fight in the middle of their Oklahoma home, who would win The new poster doesn't answer that question, but it does give us a look at how said fight would look — and though it may look like Streep's drawn the short straw in this one, it's pretty likely that moments after she was tackled, she'd be able to turn around and give just one Miranda Priestly-esque look, and Roberts would be scrambling to the other side of the room faster than you can say "that's all." Obviously. 

But seriously — this is a pretty great poster, fitting for a film that's already received solid reviews after premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. According to Indiewire, Streep and Roberts are even already getting Oscar buzz for their performances. The film, directed by John Wells, is an adaptation of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name, and follows Streep as a woman dealing with the suicide of her husband, along with her daughters portrayed by Roberts, Juliette Lewis, and Julianne Nicholson.

You can check out the poster below. August: Osage County will hit theaters everywhere on Dec. 25, Christmas day.
