Trailer for The Death of Stalin

Armando Iannucci's new movie, "The Death of Stalin", presents the Soviet leader's demise and its chaotic aftermath in a darkly-comic mockumentary style. Iannucci's use of that format to illustrate the mundane nastiness of British and American politics is already legendary; its transposition to mid-century Moscow (complete with the comically inappropriate but oddly convincing use of British accents to illustrate class and regional signifiers at the high end of Soviet politics) is so bizarre and unexpected I think it'll either fail and become a cult classic, or be the biggest movie of the year and hated by everyone forever.
