‘In the Loop’ July 13 premiere

IFC hosts event at IFC Center

Gotham trendsetters flocked to the July 13 preem of “In the Loop,” helmer Armando Iannucci’s new political satire. Distrib IFC hosted the pic at the IFC Center, with stars James Gandolfini, Steve Coogan, David Rasche and Zach Woods in attendance.

“It’s a movie that you’re going to have to see three or four times just to appreciate every vulgarity in it,” said IFC prexy Jonathan Sehring. “It’s the funniest movie of the summer.”

Iannucci took issue with that appraisal: “I thought ‘Transformers’ was funnier,” the helmer said with a smile.

While well-wishers from Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia to Tom Arnold made the rounds at the post-screening party at Scuderia, Iannucci talked about how he came up with the film. “I always wanted to make a really funny, fast-talking screwball comedy,” Iannucci said. “Then, reading about the days leading up to the Iraq War, I thought, that’s actually quite farcical right there.”
