Paramount Pictures’ The Dictator was unleashed on the UK and Ireland yesterday where it has seized the number one spot at the box office. The film toppled The Avengers from the top spot and is set to continue its success throughout opening weekend.
The Dictator tells the heroic story of a dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.
Sacha Baron Cohen stars as Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen with support from Sir Ben Kingsley, Megan Fox, Anna Faris and John C. Reilly. Larry Charles returns as director after helming both Borat and Bruno films.
