Deadline has exclusively launched the U.S. teaser for Armando Iannucci’s hilarious The Death of Stalin, which may just be one of our favourite trailers of the year. Shame it may not get much traction because the film – and two trailers for it – have already come and gone in the UK (and Film Twitter), so let’s give the guys at IFC Films a hand and watch and re-share this fantastically meta tease.
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 out now in the UK, and drops March 9 in the U.S.
