There are many theories and conspiracies surrounding the passing of Joseph Stalin in 1953. The Death of Stalin is a darkly comic interpretation of what ‘might have happened’ and the power struggle that ensued immediately afterwards.

It is an adaptation by Armando Iannucci from the graphic novel by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin.

On the night of 2nd March 1953, a man is dying. The man is Joseph Stalin, dictator, tyrant, butcher as well a Secretery General of USSR. A terrible stroke is wracking his entire body. He is drooling. He is pissing himself. He is about to kick the bucket and if you play your cards right, his job is yours for the taking.

THE DEATH OF STALIN is the latest feature film from one of Britain’s finest comedic exports, Armando Iannucci – the Oscar nominee and Emmy winner behind In the Loop, The Thick of It and Veep. It comes packed with Iannucci’s trademark wit and irreverence and features an ensemble cast of unrivalled comedic heritage including: Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin, Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Isaacs, Rupert Friend, Simon Russell Beale, Andrea Riseborough, Paddy Considine and Olga Kurylenko. The script is written by Iannucci, David Schneider and Ian Martin, with additional material by Peter Fellows.

The film is due out on 20th October 2017 and the first trailer should be with us this week.
