Leave it to the mind of the man who brought Brüno and Borat to the big screen to dream up and make fun of what isn’t necessarily a funny scenario. Sacha Baron Cohen is a dictator in Paramount Pictures’ The Dictator. Hailing from the fictional Middle Eastern country of Wadiya and having untold wealth at his fingertips he rules with impunity. The film follows his extravagant adventures as the international community pressures him to step aside. The trailer has the usual zaniness we’ve come to expect from Sacha — the Megan Fox scene is particularly noteworthy. Check it out for yourself now.
The Dictator stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Anna Faris, John C. Reilly, Megan Fox, B.J. Novak and Ben Kingsley.
The Dictator oppresses US and UK theaters on May 16, 2012.
