New trailer for The Dictator: watch now

Relax! There is a plot...

The Dictator
has released a new trailer online, in which Sacha Baron Cohen's General Aladeen is stripped of his beard and forced to live among ordinary, run of the mill Americans.
The new footage gives a much clearer impression of how the film's plot will play out, with John C Reilly's government agent neutralising the General by cutting off his beard, thus rendering him unrecognisable to the American public.
Adrift and alone in New York, Aladeen soon becomes pals with Anna Faris's store owner, and sets about adjusting to his new life.
Take a look at the new Dictator trailer below…
This new turn of events is looking a lot more promising, with Aladeen's fish out of water antics providing the bulk of the gags. Subtle it ain't, but watching an obnoxious child get a boot up his backside will never not be funny.

The Dictator opens in the UK on 18 May 2012. Prepare to make room in your hearts for a new breed of tyrant.

      Got a couple of laughs out of the trailer (children being hurt = funny) but I highly suspect those are all the best laughs in the film.

      Mar 30th 2012, 6:41 This was the last attempt at a comedy involving terrorists, the Middle East and secret agents. This type of comedy was executed successfully in the film Borat and has since failed to be duplicated. Movies like "You Don't Mess With the Zohan" and "Bruno" were attempting to emulate a movie that really only worked because of the novelty and audacity it had; it was shocking, but not really funny once the shock of awkward situations was gone. This movie seems to be attempting the same type of humor and it will fail unless the movie ends up far different than the trailer would suggest. It begs the question of who is in the market for this type of film in the first place. Did the Borat style of shock and gross out humor really become such a fad?
