First Official UK Trailer for Armando Iannucci’s Political Satire THE DEATH OF STALIN

THE DEATH OF STALIN is an upcoming political satire film co-written and directed by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci (In the Loop, HBO’s Veep). Premiering in the Platform section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, the film chronicles the events that transpired after the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953.

The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in THE DEATH OF STALIN. 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.

The film that combines comedy, drama, pathos and political manoeuvring, stars Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin, Jeffery Tambor, Jason Isaacs, Rupert Friend, Simon Russell Beale, Olga Kurylenko, Paddy Considine, and Andrea Riseborough.
