'The Dictator' movie preview

NEW YORK, NY (FOX44) – Actor Sacha Baron Cohen is coming back to the big screen. His new movie, "The Dictator" proves to be just as unpredictable as his others.

Sacha Baron Cohen is out to prove that never in history has there been a dictator quite like this. He's also out to show there isn't an actor like him, by once again embracing a character and taking it to the public and the press, just like he did in "Borat" and "Bruno."

Venturing into new territory, Cohen actually had a script. The film tells the story of Wadiya's Admiral General Aladeen and his effort to block democracy, but his famous co-stars quickly learned anything still goes on set.

Faris says, "He stays in character all the time, so we either had to call him I think supreme leader or dictator"

Kingsley says, "We maintain that uncle nephew holding hands relationship going up to the take where we would talk in character which was great for me."

Those familiar with Cohen's previous work know he can be an equal opportunity offender, but Sir Ben Kingsley gives a little insight into this man behind the madness.

Kingsley says, "It takes a decent guy to play those people. And therefore I knew we'd be all on the same page in the same move and we'd all be in on the same joke, which has an underlying truth to it which is why this is going to be 2012's greatest comedy hit but also for a long time to come a great piece of political satire."
