Armando Iannucci Goes to the USSR in ‘The Death Of Stalin’ Trailer

Armando Iannucci’s Comedy

Entertainment One in the UK has released the first trailer for Armando Iannucci’s upcoming adaptation of the French graphic novel The Death of Stalin.

Ianucci’s first film since 2009 takes a comedic look at Stalin’s last days. It features an ensemble cast that includes Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend, Jason Isaacs, and Olga Kurylenko. This is worth for cast. Rest of it looks like a charade.

The Death of Stalin is set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, and will be released in the U.S. by IFC Films. Watch the trailer below:

Armando Iannucci’s Comedy

The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci.
In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive.
A film that combines comedy, drama, pathos and political maneuvering, The Death of Stalin is a Quad and Main Journey production, directed by Armando Iannucci, and produced by Yann Zenou, Kevin Loader, Nicolas Duval Assakovsky, and Laurent Zeitoun. The script is written by Iannucci, David Schneider and Ian Martin, with additional material by Peter Fellows.
