The Dictator

The Super Bowl is only a few days away, and just like last year, many commercials (like the Ferris Bueller inspired Honda ad with Matthew Broderick) are making their way online early for more exposure. We've already gotten a tease of the TV spot for The Avengers that will air during the big game, but now we have our first full length TV spot for The Dictator, the non-mockumentary feature from Sacha Baron Cohen. Most of the footage can be found in the first trailer that was released a little while back, but there's a solid crack at the network hosting the Super Bowl this year, so that's fun. Anyway, watch the new TV spot below!

Here's the Super Bowl TV spot for Larry Charles' new comedy The Dictator (via ComingSoon):

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, but we have no idea how they're going to fit in this. 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.
