Trailer: ‘The Dictator’ from Sacha Baron Cohen
Here’s the first full trailer from Paramount for The Dictator. The film reunites Sacha Baron Cohen with Larry Charles, his director from Bruno and Borat. Cohen plays a Middle Eastern tyrant in the vein of Saddam Hussein or Muammar Gaddafi, who is forced to flee to America after some sort of political coup in his homeland.
The dictator will risk his life to ensure that democracy never comes to the country he so lovingly oppressed. It’s said that the movie was loosely inspired by the best selling novel Zabibah and The King by Saddam Hussein.
The Dictator stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Anna Faris and John C. Reilly and hits theaters on May 11, 2012.
