'Death of Stalin' Trailer Previews Armando Iannucci's Post-'Veep' Comedy
The movie debuts next month at the Toronto Film Festival.
The Russian regime is thoroughly introduced in the first trailer for The Death of Stalin.
Directed by Veep creator Armando Iannucci, the historical satire is based on the French graphic novel by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin and is set during the chaotic days of political infighting that followed the 1953 death of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin.
Starring Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin, Olga Kurylenko and Homeland star Rupert Friend, the IFC title will debut at next month's Toronto Film Festival.
