‘The Death of Stalin’ Trailer: Armando Iannucci Left ‘Veep’ to Make the Year’s Most Hilarious Political Film

11 August 2017 4:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fans of HBO’s critically acclaimed and Emmy Award-winning “Veep” got unfortunate news at the end of Season 4 when series creator Armando Iannucci announced he was stepping down as showrunner and leaving the series. Iannucci’s brand of razor sharp political satire defined much of the series, and while the show has continued to be great under the supervision of David Mendel, fans have been left wondering when they’d get to see Iannucci again.

‘The Death of Stalin’ Trailer: Armando Iannucci Targets Soviet Russia

11 August 2017 4:48 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While his work on Veep led to one of the funniest shows on television, we’ve been missing Armando Iannucci’s specific brand of political humor in the cinema. He’s now finally making his In the Loop follow-up with The Death of Stalin and ahead of a fall festival premiere, the first trailer has arrived.

“A lot of it is based on true stuff, but what we’re trying to do is not just concentrate on these people. Within the story you see how their deliberations impact on people all over the empire of the Soviet Union,” Iannucci told THR. “So it’s quite an expansive, quite an ambitious scale. It’s both intimate and very, very vast at the same time.”

Starring Adrian McLoughlin, Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend, and Jason Isaacs, check out the hilarious preview below. »

Antonio Banderas & Olga Kurylenko in Trailer for 'Gun Shy' Comedy

7 August 2017 4:13 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Rock out with your glock out." Saban Films has debuted the first official trailer for an action comedy called Gun Shy, formerly known as Salty (which is the title that appears on the very early poster art seen below the trailer). The movie stars Antonio Banderas as an over-the-top rockstar named Turk Henry, with a wife played by Olga Kurylenko. She gets kidnapped while the two are vacationing in Chile, and Banderas recruits some wacky people to help him find and free her. Sounds like a fun straight-to-vhs concept for an action movie, why not. The full cast includes Ben Cura, Mark Valley, Aisling Loftus, David Mitchell, Jeremy Swift, and Jesse Johnson. This really looks ridiculous, but it may be a fun beer-and-pizza rental.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Action-Comedy ‘Killing Gunther’ Lands at Saban Films

7 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Saban Films has acquired North American distribution rights to Taran Killam’s “Killing Gunther,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The cast includes Killam’s fellow “Saturday Night Live” alum Bobby Moynihan, Hannah Simone, Cobie Smulders, Paul Brittain, Amir Talai, Aaron Yoo, Ryan Gaul, and Allison Tolman. The action-comedy is produced by Killam, Kim Leadford, Ash Sarohia and Steve Squillante, executive produced by Schwarzenegger, and financed by StarStream Media and Ingenious Media.

Saban is planning a theatrical release later this year. Imr International is handling the foreign rights.

Schwarzenegger portrays the titular Gunther, the world’s greatest (and most arrogant) hitman. After the assassin community tires of his antics, a group of eccentric killers from across the globe come together to set the perfect trap. Their master plan quickly turns into a series of embarrassing fails as Gunther always appears one step ahead.

The film, originally titled “Why We’re Killing Gunther,” just wrapped production.
