After last seeing the character during his Academy Award ash-spilling incident, we’ve got a new glimpse at Sacha Baron Cohen‘s The Dictator. The first trailer gave almost no hint at what our character goes through, only that the leader comes to America. But now this French trailer reveals some sort of plotline.
