Whether he's shooting his competitors during a relay race or spilling ashes on Ryan Seacrest before the Oscars, there's been plenty to enjoy about Sacha Baron Cohen's portrayal of Supreme Leader Shabazz Aladeen. As for a trailer, though, the fictional dictator of the fictional Middle Eastern country of Wadiya hasn't been seen since Paramount released a Super Bowl ad in February... Until now.
The studio just released a feature-length trailer for The Dictator that's perhaps more revealing than audiences would like. So far, The Dictator's promotional footage has managed to do a good job of introducing Baron Cohen as Aladeen while balancing a ridiculous, yet still dark, tone. The new trailer, though, reveals a plot twist that — while it explains what Anna Faris is doing in the movie — gives away plot details that perhaps should have been saved for the theater. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.28.12 by Ryan
