Check This Out: Sacha Baron Cohen's 'The Dictator' Teaser Poster
Meet "The Dictator" - we don't even need to know his name. While this first teaser poster for The Dictator, starring Sacha Baron Cohen, was originally debuted with the first trailer last week, we never featured it then, so here it is now (via IMPAwards). In fact, I just love this poster, I think it's hilarious and such an iconic image to go along with this otherwise wacky comedy. The footage doesn't look exactly like I expected it to, but I still think this is a good poster to share with you guys anyway. I love the characters Sacha Baron Cohen creates, I just hope the "story" around them is worthwhile. Anyway, see the painting in full below!
That's a hell of a beard! The Dictator is again being helmed Larry Charles, director of Borat and Bruno, as well as Religulous and episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm". Paramount has this comedy set for release on May 11th, 2012 next summer, so we've got a while, but this is a rather unforgettable first tease. The cast for The Dictator also includes Anna Faris and Ben Kingsley, both of whom can be seen briefly in trailer. Apparently, Saddam Hussein's best-selling novel Zabibah and the King "inspired" this story about a dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy will never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. Paramount will be bringing The Dictator to theaters everywhere starting May 11th this coming summer.
