Arguably the biggest British comedy film of 2017, The Death Of Stalin is now available to order on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.

Co-written and directed by Armando Iannucci based upon a French graphic novel, the film charts the final days of Russian communist dictator Joseph Stalin, and the immediate days following his death in 1953.

Fictionalising real events, the comedy stars Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Jeffrey Tambor, Michael Palin and Paul Whitehouse as Stalin's fellow rulers in the oppressive left-wing regime, as machinations begin to appoint the late leader's all-powerful successor.

As well as plotting amongst and between themselves, the group have to deal with Stalin's drunken, hysterical son Vasily (Rupert Friend), and demanding daughter Svetlana (Andrea Riseborough), plus bombastic military general Zhukov (Jason Isaacs).

Out on Monday 19th February as a download and from Monday 26th February on DVD and Blu-ray, the physical releases also include an audio commentary from the writers, as well as interviews with cast and crew. Details
