Regular “approved-for-all-audiences” trailers for a movie like The Dictator have to cut out all the vulgar, viciously dark jokes that essentially make the movie what it is. This new unrated trailer for Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest shock comedy gives everyone a glimpse of the type of envelope-pushing humor that we’re used to from Borat (2006) and Bruno (2009). We can clearly expect a lot of satire in the forms of misogyny, anti-semitism, racism, and everything in between. Try and count how many times in this three minute preview General Aladeen makes some kind of disparaging remark against women. (Hint: it’s a lot)
The first scene of The Dictator is also available here.
