Stalin Is Dead In Hilarious New Trailer For ‘The Death Of Stalin’


Following the film’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, as well as a secret screening at Fantastic Fest last night, eOne has debuted the second trailer for The Thick Of It and Veep creator Armando Iannucci’s The Death of Stalin. Watch below:

IFC Films is also set to show off footage from the film at New York Comic-Con next Thursday, with the director attending a special panel.

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.

Starring Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin, Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Isaacs, Rupert Friend, Simon Russell Beale, Andrea Riseborough, Paddy Considine and Olga Kurylenko, the film is released in the UK on October 20, with a US date to be announced.
