Stan’s brand new satirical masterpiece The Great has just landed and it’s taken social media by storm.
The period comedy drama is a fictionalised retelling of the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia’s history.
It stars Elle Fanning as Catherine and your teen crush Nicholas Hoult as Peter III of Russia.

“You gave me a bear and you’ve ceased punching me, what else could a lady ask for?” 😆😆

Peter: someone should figure out what goes on between a chap and his mother. There would be money in that. #TheGreat

I just finished @TheGreatHulu in its entirety in one day because I loved it that much. Dark, satirical comedy with excellent actors and gorgeous costumes. Highly recommend watching it! #TheGreat pic.twitter.com/e5ejHwPy2u
