‘The Dictator’ Trailer: Sacha Baron Cohen as Equal Parts Muammar Gaddafi and Ali G

Sacha Baron Cohen as The Dictator

Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for The Dictator, in which Sacha Baron Cohen plays a ruthless Middle Eastern dictator, something along the lines of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, who is sent to America in exile and must live among the infidels. It’s what one might call a brave move, if this weren’t another Sacha Baron Cohen and Larry Charles joint. It’s safe to assume that Cohen is trying to create this modern generation’s version of Chaplin’s The Great Dictator, but with far more hairy Kardashians jokes.

Watch the trailer for yourself below and let us know what you think:

The Dictator is due out May 11, 2012. The film will also star Megan Fox, Anna Faris, John C. Reilly, Ben Kingsley, B.J. Novak and J.B. Smoove. The trailer is courtesy of The Huffington Post.
