Baron Cohen reteams with Borat director Larry Charles for the story of a dictator who causes international scandal on his trip to the United States.
Ben Kingsley stars as the dictator's special advisor, while Megan Fox, John C Reilly, BJ Novak and Anna Faris round out an all-star cast.
Faris previously described Baron Cohen as "comedic genius" in an interview with Digital Spy, adding that the actor kept her on her toes while filming The Dictator.
The Dictator opens on May 11, 2012 in the US and on May 18 in the UK.
