An official trailer to Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest flick ‘The Dictator’ has finally been officially released. The man behind Ali G, Borat, and Brüno, Cohen takes on the role as a “ruthless” Middle East dictator. The premises of the movie is said to be based off Zabibah and the King, a novel by written by none other than former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein himself, as well as former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. But by no means is this a ‘serious’ film about Middle Eastern dictatorship. Much like Cohen’s previous films this movie is a comedy satire and like all of Cohen’s films it’s sure to raise some good old controversy.
The Dictator is set to be released in cinemas in 2012, check out the trailer below and see what you think
