The first look at Sacha Baron Cohen as the title character in The Dictator has arrived online.
Based on the book Zabibah And The King, by Saddam Hussein, the film follows the story of a ruthless dictator who “risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.”
The Dictator sees Cohen re-teaming with Borat and Bruno director Larry Charles, though this won't feature the same mockumentary style as their previous collaborations.

The Dictator also stars Ben Kingsley and Anna Faris, and is due to open on 11 May 2012.
