Next month, Paramount Home Media Distribution will bring The Dictator to Blu-ray. Borat creators Sasha Baron Cohen (Brüno) and Larry Charles (Religulous) have reunited for this satirical comedy, which focuses on Admiral General Aladeen (Cohen), the cheerfully brutal ruler of the fictional Republic of Wadiya.
When Aladeen arrives in New York City to bully the United Nations into letting him develop nuclear weapons, he expects its representatives to cower before him. However, Aladeen's treacherous uncle (Ben Kingsley, Gandhi) and a hitman (John C. Reilly, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) have other plans for the dictator, and their attempt on his life leaves Aladeen on the run in Manhattan, where his relationships with an exiled Wadiyan weapons manufacturer (Jason Mantzoukas, The League) and an environmental activist (Anna Faris, What's Your Number) slowly soften his intolerant, violent ways.
Paramount's Blu-ray/DVD/UltraVioletDigital Copy combo pack presents two iterations of the film - the eighty-three-minute theatrical cut and a new 103-minute unrated version - in their original aspect ratio of 2.39:1 with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks.
