Trailer: The Dictator (Extended Preview)

A longer trailer for Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator is out and now I REALLY wanna see it. This delves more into the “story” of the movie, that General Aladeen’s beard gets chopped, which renders him harmless and unrecognizable to city folk.

He later meets one of my all-time favorite comedic actresses (Anna Faris) on a bicycle and proceeds to accidentally grab her boobs, thinking she’s a boy. Continue reading “Trailer: The Dictator (Extended Preview)”

Dictator Dumps Ashes Down Seacrest’s Blouse

Sacha Baron Cohen made a big stink about being invited to the Academy Awards and being able to walk the red carpet as his latest faux-documentary prankster, Admiral Aladeen.

The green light he received allowed him to do something that is frowned upon within the industry, but, for a viewer it’s a non-dusty Pecan Sandy treat for the eyes. At the 2012 Oscars the bearded 6’3″ Sasha poured an urn full of ashes right down little Ryan Seacrest’s Burberry tuxedo.

Sacha Baron Cohen Takes On Obama And Megan Fox In ‘The Dictator’

Sacha Baron Cohen latest film and first writing effort since 2009’s Brunois not what you’re used to. It’s not a reality-based prank mockumentary, it’s more Ali G Indahouse than Borat. Comparisons to the Ali G movie can be dangerous, since the character got lost in fiction and terrible dialogue.

The new trailer for The Dictator seems hit and miss in itself, it made me laugh, but the it clearly has the potential to be horrendous on a Jack and Jill level. It stars John C. Reilly, Ben Kingsley and an appearance by Megan Fox, who is rightly transitioning from action to comedy for her 2012 filmography.
