Sacha Baron Cohen as The Dictator

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!

Here's the first official poster for The Dictator. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, you can watch it here.

The Dictator Poster

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.

ok so remind me, is this suppose to be a comical side movie to bin laden?

JBrotsis on Dec 17, 2011


no, bin laden wasn't a dictator, he was a terrorist, this has more of a  Castro and communism angle 

Jak_wilkinson on Dec 18, 2011


what do you mean you have no idea how ben kingsley fits into the movie? you can tell from the trailer that he is obviously the dictator's aid or something who secretly hates him...didn't you watch the trailer?

Right, we still don't really know his role, but I fixed it - thanks.

Alex Billington on Dec 18, 2011

Why Are They Putting Terror In Our in comedy?? do they think it's a joke?

B...s.#*t on Dec 18, 2011


Terror is fucking hilarious, what are you talking about? If you can't laugh about it, then your pretty much a ball satchel and shouldn't leave your fearcage.

Crapola on Dec 18, 2011


Well mister, looking at what is going on around the world..i guess you don't give a shit

Greatest anti-terror statement ever.  If you're not terrified, then it's not terrorism, and thus, simple random violence, which can also be funny.

I don't like his kind of humor. He just tries to shock you (and fails to do so). To me he's not funny at all, but to each their own I guess.

Davide Coppola on Dec 18, 2011


No, what I meant is that he fails to shock me.

There seems to be a bunch of bickering little bitches on this comment page.. If someone has an opinion let them have their fucking opinion you sniveling little pussies.

Yay you tell em Ryan!

Crapola on Dec 19, 2011


Trailer looked like shit and by shit I mean something Adam Sandler would make, if you want to see a truly comical take on terror I recommend Four Lions.
