Watch: A New Red Band Trailer for 'The Dictator' Goes for the Bold
Most of the promotions for The Dictator with Sacha Baron Cohen have been pretty disappointing (even one with Martin Scorsese on "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend), and I think it's safe to say that we'll get another comedy that won't measure up to his effort in Borat. Of course, in each trailer, there are at least a couple new jokes that I've found rather amusing, and that's the case with this new red band trailer. It sounds like there's going to be plenty of racial jokes, foul language and more to make the R-rating worth it, and Cohen is definitely being a little bold with some 9/11 jokes tossed in for good measure. Watch it below!
Here's the red band trailer for Larry Charles' comedy The Dictator via Deadline:
And there goes the beard! The Dictator is again being helmed Larry Charles, director of Borat and Bruno, as well as Religulous and episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm". The cast for The Dictator also includes Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, John C. Reilly, even B.J. Novak and Aasif Mandvi, and now we finally get to see who a few of their characters actually are. 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 Baron Cohen's The Dictator to theaters everywhere starting May 16th this summer. For more, visit: RepublicofWadiya.com. Good stuff?
