With 9 days to go until the release of THE DICTATOR, his excellency General Aladeen of the People’s Republic of Wadiya has given permission for Paramount Pictures to release a new red band trailer for the the upcoming the film. This film is going to be one of those if you loved Borat, Bruno The dictator you’ll just adore if you liked a few things about Sacha Baron Cohen’s previous films or simply don’t like anything he’s ever made this will probably be the most insensitive film he’s made to date. The film also is the first non mockumentary type film too he has created so it will be interesting to see how well the character plays out throughout the film. What we’ve seen so far from the trailers has been quite good but could tip the scales into tasteless humour as one of the new scenes or extended is a post 9-11 joke which may go down better outside USA though still with negativity than in USA itself. We even see the General deliver a baby which is a crude but funny scene which shows the General’s attitude towards women , delivering some ‘bad’ news whilst giving more pain to the expectant mother! There’s also a extra video from USA’s Saturday Night Live with The General with some extreme ways of getting good reviews and a unexpected hostage….
