A new red band trailer for The Dictator shows General Aladeen trying to blend in. After being unbearded and stripped of his money and clothes, Sacha Baron Cohen's North African dictator character is no loner recognizable.
The trailer features some extended footage of Aladeen working in a health-food co-op, aiding (if you can call it that) in a birth, and accidentally scaring some tourists into thinking he's a terrorist.
The Dictator in question is clearly used to being revered, as evidenced in these General Aladeen portraits, so being stripped of his power throws his entire world upside down.
The Dictator comes out May 16, and it's not the only political comedy this summer. Today also saw the release of two new political ads for The Campaign, starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis, opening August 10.
