Proclaimed “the funniest political comedy of the year” (The Daily Beast) and banned in Russian cinemas, the brutally executed parody THE DEATH OF STALIN arrives on DVD and Digital June 19, 2018 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. The film will also be available for sale or rental from cable, satellite and telco providers through IFC Films.
Written and directed by Emmy Award winner and Oscar nominee Armando Iannucci (“Veep,” In The Loop), THE DEATH OF STALIN follows the tyrannical ruler’s hapless inner circle in the days after his death. As they scramble to come up with the next evolution of the revolution, it’s clear everyone is really out for themselves. The “hilarious…riotous farce of doublespeak” (Time Out) stars Emmy and Golden Globe winner Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Rupert Friend, Andrea Riseborough, Jason Isaacs, and Michael Palin.
THE DEATH OF STALIN DVD includes a behind-the-scenes featurette entitled “Dictators, Murderers, and Comrades…Oh My!”, as well as deleted scenes. The disc is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with English 5.1 Dolby Audio, English Audio Description and English subtitles.
