Armando Iannucci, the singular mind behind In The Loop, The Thick of It, and Veep, has been hard at work with his latest offering, The Death of Stalin. Basically, Iannucci brings his special brand of rapid fire dark political comedy to the events and subsequent power vacuum following the sudden death of infamous Russian dictator Joseph Stalin.
Suffice it to say.that it looks glorious.
The trailer, just released today, promises something quite extraordinary with a fantastic cast that includes Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin, Paddy Considine, Jason Isaacs, and more as power hungry Russian higher-ups bickering Iannucci style.
See for yourself in the trailer here.
The Death of Stalin is slated for a UK release on Oct. 20th. Keep a close for a U.S. release date.
