Armando Ianucci's second feature as director is the terrific-looking The Death Of Stalin. Here's the trailer…

Yes please. We’ve been eagerly awaited the second film from Armando Ianucci the film director since it was first announced (we still love In The Loop a lot), and The Death Of Stalin finally arrives on October 20th.

The movie now has its first trailer, and an official synopsis. And it’s our happy pleasure to bring you both. Here’s the trailer first…

And here’s the 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.

More on the film closer to its release. Really can’t wait for this one.
