First Trailer for The Death of Stalin

Armando Iannucci is one of the greatest satirists currently working. Over the course of series such as Alan Partridge, The Armando Iannucci Shows, Thick of It and Veep, he has honed a styled defined by hilarious wit and biting social critique. So, tackling the backroom squabbling of Soviet Russia would be a natural fit for his talents. Adapted from the French graphic novel of the same name by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin, The Death of Stalin is a comedic look at the power struggle following the dictator’s demise and features some top notch talent.

 

The Death of Stalin stars Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Simon Russell Beale, Jason Isaacs and Michael Palin. After debuting at the Toronto Film Festival, IFC Films plans a fall US release.

Cheers

    1. That concept would also make a great graphic novel/interesting movie. Jim Starlin dies, and is guided through the afterlife by Mar-Vell and Thanos.

      1. Also he’s initially greeted in the after life by Sreve Gerber & Howard the Duck.

        Problem is I don’t really trust anyone besides Starlin or Gerber to write that . . .
