New poster for Sacha Baron Cohen's The Dictator sets its sights on America

Apr. 3, 2012by: Paul Shirey

A new poster for Sacha Baron Cohen's THE DICTATOR arrives today, featuring the main character, General Aladeen, with his eyes on the prize of America. 

Have a look:

THE DICTATOR is directed by long-time collaborator Larry Charles (Seinfeld) and co-stars Anna Faris, John C. Reilly, Ben Kingsley, and Megan Fox.  It's also the first scripted film Cohen has done as the headliner since ALI G IN DA HOUSE movie.  He's had supporting roles in SWEENEY TODD and HUGO, but those weren't his personal projects. 

The second trailer revealed the direction of the film and I think they chose the right path.  Seeing the Admiral General reduced to what he would probably call peasants is ripe for potential with Cohen's humor and I think he'll make the most of it.  I've had a great time with Cohen's comedy films thus far and I'm optimistic that trend will continue with this.

THE DICTATOR opens May 18, 2012.

This trailer got me wondering what kind of uproar would occur if an Arabic comedian made a "comedic" movie based on a lot of Israeli negative stereotypes. That's a movie I'd like to see Cohen sit through just to see what kind of hypocritical reactions he would have to something similar.

And no, I'm not Arabic, just kind of tired of hatred being passed off as humor by Cohen.

Because of the events of 9/11, this poster is in poor taste. Actually, the movie looks stupid. I don't' have any respect for Cohen.

I find the helicopter scene at the end of the trailer absolutely hilarious.

Larry Charles was a major behind the scenes producer and writer on Seinfeld.

He also has directed a majority of Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm.

And I thought Anna Faris couldn't get any hotter...I guess the challenge was accepted.
