The Death of Stalin – Trailer 1 – Steve Buscemi

The Death of Stalin The Death of Stalin seemed an odd idea for a movie, but then I saw the name Armando Iannucci (The Thick Of It, In The Loop) and was sold on it immediately!

The only plot details known so far are… well, it’s a comedy, so you don’t need to know a great deal, but it follows the Soviet dictator, Stalin’s (Adrian McLoughlin), last days and depicts the chaos of the regime after his death.

Quite frankly, just check out the cast list and watch the trailer – Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Olga Kurylenko, Rupert Friend, Andrea Riseborough, Jeffrey Tambor, Paddy Considine, Michael Palin, Jonathan Aris, Simon Russell Beale, Dermot Crowley, Paul Whitehouse and Justin Edwards.

Writers: Armando Iannucci, David Schneider, Ian Martin, Peter Fellows (based on the graphic novel by Fabien Nury)

The Death of Stalin is released in the UK on October 20th and I can’t wait for it!
