The Death of Stalin Trailer: From Russia, With Incompetence

The Death of Stalin Trailer: From Russia, With Incompetence”

The film, which takes place in the days after the Russian leader died in 1953, shows the struggle for power among his deputies-and, in Iannucci's eyes, they were just as dumb as the people who run England and the United States today. And, in what is actually a pretty smart move (in my opinion), Iannucci also allows each of his actors to keep their native accents and dialects, which means we aren't made to suffer throughout outrageous attempts at Slavic cadence or the typical fall-back to everyone just sounding posh and English.

The Death of Stalin stars Steve Buscemi (Broadwalk Empire, Reservoir Dogs), Rupert Friend (Homeland), Jason Isaacs (the Harry Potter films), Simon Russell Beale (Penny Dreadful), Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent, Arrested Development), and the mighty Monty Python legend Michael Palin.

If you thought you'd seen enough of Armando Iannucci's particular brand of political omnishambles mockumentary, you're wrong: the creator of The Thick of It, In the Loop and Veep is turning his acerbic eye to Communist Russia, and it's even better than that sounds.

The Death of Stalin will screen at the Toronto Film Festival next month, with its United Kingdom release slated for 20 October 2017. Their one common trait?

Combining comedy with politics, drama and pathos, The Death Of Stalin is produced by Yann Zenou, Kevin Loader, Nicolas Duval Assakovsky and Laurent Zeitoun.
