First 'Dictator' Trailer Highlights Sacha Baron Cohen as Eccentric Tyrant
"The Dictator" has got its first trailer available for viewing pleasure. Opening with a scene where President Barrack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton talk about a tyrant who controls the nation for decades, the promo video then sees Sacha Baron Cohen playing a luxuriantly bearded Middle Eastern billionaire who has an eccentric and annoying manner.
He then enters New York City by riding a camel while saying, "Ahh.. America, the birth place of AIDS." At one point, he is seen lying on a luxurious bed with Megan Fox, who plays a woman who gets paid to sleep with a man. When she receives some jewels as her payment, she asks, "What's this? A ruby? Is that a joke? What am I, a Kardashian?"
"The Dictator" follows the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. Larry Charles serves behind the lens for the dramedy, while Baron Cohen co-produces and co-writes the film in addition to starring in it.
Rounding up the cast ensemble are Ben Kingsley, Anna Faris, John C. Reilly and Jason Mantzoukas. The movie is slated for a May 11, 2012 release in theaters across the U.S.
