So, what happens when a powerful despot suddenly drops dead from a heart attack? The country goes wild!

Check out a new trailer for "The Death of Stalin," a new darkly comic political satire from Armando Iannucci, the Emmy-winning creator of the HBO comedy "Veep."

Set against the 1953 death of Russian dictator Joseph Stalin, which generated a political power struggle among his underlings, the film boasts an all-star cast that includes Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Jeffrey Tambor, Rupert Friend, Andrea Riseborough, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Michael Palin and much more.

After premiering to rave reviews at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, "The Death of Stalin" is expected to open in the U.K. on October 20th with a U.S. release to follow at a later date.

synopsis:
The internal political landscape of 1950's Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci.

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.

A film that combines comedy, drama, pathos and political manoeuvring, The Death of Stalin is a Quad and Main Journey production, directed by Armando Iannucci, and produced by Yann Zenou, Kevin Loader, Nicolas Duval Assakovsky, and Laurent Zeitoun. The script is written by Iannucci, David Schneider and Ian Martin, with additional material by Peter Fellows.
