Trailer for Sacha Baron Cohen's THE DICTATOR

I think Sacha Baron Cohen is very funny guy, at the same time he really knows how to get under peoples skin and annoy the hell out of them. The first trailer for his new comedy The Dictator has been released, and it looks like it could be another great Cohen comedic adventure. The last part of this trailer is pretty damn funny.

The film was directed by Larry Charles (Borat, Bruno, Curb Your Enthusiasm) and also stars Ben Kingsley, Jason Mantzoukas, Anna Faris, Megan Fox, John C. Reilly and J.B. Smoove. The film tells “the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. It is inspired by the best selling novel, Zabibah and The King, by Saddam Hussein.”

Here's a short synopsis:

Baron Cohen plays a ruthless dictator who heads to the U.S. for a meeting at the United Nations and finds that his number two has replaced him with an unsuspecting sheepherder lookalike. As the dictator wanders the city, he meets the owner of an organic food store.

The movie is scheduled to be released on May 11th. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think! Does it look like something you might enjoy?
