'The Death of Stalin' Trailer: Armando Iannucci Targets Soviet Russia

12 Août 2017

Entertainment One has released the global trailer for The Death of Stalin, the latest political satire from Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci (In the Loop, Veep). Their one common trait?

Cast: Rupert Friend, Jason Isaacs, Paul Whitehouse, Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine and Andrea Riseborough. They're all just desperately trying to remain alive in this comedy that combines laughs with drama, pathos and political scheming. Iannucci wrote the script with David Schneider and Ian Martin, with Peter Fellows providing additional material. Set in 1953, and based on the just-published Titan Comics graphic by writer Fabien Nury and artist Thierry Robin, the movie concerns the chaos and power struggles which ensue after Soviet leader Joseph Stalin has a stroke.

In a statement on Friday, the club's owners said its "definitive stance" was that "no offers will be considered". Liverpool have so far denied reports their star man has handed in a transfer request.

The Death of Stalin will premiere at The Toronto Film Festival and opens in theaters on October 20.

The trailer for Armando Iannucci's The Death of Stalin came out today and the Trump administration comparisons are easily found in this depressingly relevant looking satire.
