Paramount has debuted the first trailer for Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest outrageous comedy The Dictator. Inspired by Saddam Hussein’s best selling novel “Zabibah and The King”, Cohen plays a ruthless despot who risks “his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.” The film also stars Ben Kingsley, Anna Faris, Megan Fox and John C. Reilly.
Personally, I absolutely despised Bruno (2009) so I’m certainly hoping Cohen bounces back in a big way with this. While the trailer doesn’t show all that much, it certainly looks like it could be hilarious with Megan Fox dissing on the Kardashians and Cohen channeling his inner Borat to outrageous results once again.
Check out the trailer below via Moviefone. The Dictator opens May 11, 2012.
