If you’ve ever watched Veep or The Thick of It and wished you could see them done in a post-World War II Soviet Union, you’re in luck. Armando Iannucci, creator of the above foul-mouthed political comedies and director of The Thick of It’s film spin-off In the Loop, is bringing that same brand of crass comedy to Russia, with love.
The Death of Stalin follows what happens after, well, the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953 and the havoc it wreaks upon his hapless generals and advisers. It has Jeffrey Tambor bumbling around in a bad dark wig. What else do you need?

The first full-length trailer for Homeland Season 5 begins with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) in a good place. She’s got a cushy private job in Berlin, she’s dating a handsome new fellow, and she finally seems to have taken to motherhood. Most importantly, she’s left behind the CIA, the source of her greatest triumphs and tribulations over the years.

For years the enigmatic opening credits to Mad Men have provoked viewers into many entertaining questions. How literal is the opening animation meant to be? What does it mean for Don Draper, and by implication the rest of the characters? While the metaphoric thrust of the credits is evident to anyone who watches the show, it’s still fun to talk about.
Now a teaser for the new film Hitman: Agent 47 shows us the truth behind the Mad Men credits, just in time for the AMC show to broadcast its final leap into the sky. No surprise: in this conception, it isn’t a leap, but a violent fall. Read More »
