IFC Films has released the new trailer for their upcoming film directed by Veep creator Armando Iannucci, The Death Of Stalin. The film follows the chaos and jockeying for power that took place after the death of the authoritative leader in 1953. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov, the wily Nikita Khrushchev, and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria. But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government?
Ahead of its release later this Spring, Film4 has released a UK trailer for Lynne Ramsay’s thriller You Were Never Really Here.
Sony’s first trailer for Sicario 2: Soldado, shows Benicio del Toro returning as undercover operative Alejandro Gillick and Josh Brolin as CIA agent Matt Graver. The film is the sequel to the 2015 Denis Villeneuve-directed drug-cartel movie starring Emily Blunt. It’s rumored to be part of a trilogy of films.
Amazon Studios has released the official trailer for the tense thriller You Were Never Really Here, starring three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix, and it’s a dark descent into a seedy underworld of high-society mansions and slummy alleyways.
Daniel Day-Lewis has not been seen on screens since he won his third Best Actor Oscar for the title role in Lincoln, and supposedly Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread will be his last ever film role. Even though we may find ourselves without one of the world’s foremost actors in any future movies (sometimes cited as the greatest-living), Day-Lewis will bow out with this stunning-looking, and oddly eerie film as his curtain call.
