The Trailer For 'Death Of Stalin' Just Dropped And People Already Can't Wait For The Movie


Hold on to your horses, people. We may have a new contender for comedy of the year – and, ironically enough, it’s all about Russia.

Instead of worrying about Trump getting his knickers in a twist over North Korea, we suppose it would be much better to laugh about something else for a bit.

Armando Iannucci is the 51-year-old genius behind some of the most hilarious comedy shows we’ve seen on the small screen – from the hit US show Veep to the much loved I’m Alan Partridge. 

He’s a mastermind when it comes to delivering comedy, through his expert use of dry, dark humour and those deadpan one-liners. Many have compared his talent to that seen on the infamous US adaptation of The Office and in all honesty, it makes complete sense that his unique style shines through in the trailer of this upcoming film. We’re already excited.


This satirical period drama-comedy is based on Fabien Nury’s popular graphic novel of the same name, which thoroughly breaks down all the events that took place after the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953.

With a cast this brilliant, it isn’t that difficult to see why people can’t wait for this film to be released. Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent), Rupert Friend (Homeland, Pride and Prejudice), Michael Palin (Monty Python) and Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter) are just some of the big Hollywood names associated with the film.


Check out the hilarious trailer down below:

Of course, everyone on Twitter has expressed their excitement:
