The Dictator Heading To Blu-Ray In August

Paramount Pictures have announced the Blu-Ray release of The Dictator for August, starring Sacha Baron Cohen.

Larry Charles and Sacha Baron Cohen re-teamed this year for The Dictator, which was Cohen’s return to another one of his insane characters, but this time shot more traditionally, with actual actors and not with random bystanders walking into one of his pranks.

The Dictator didn’t stir up as much controversy as say Borat or Bruno, but it did decent numbers at the box office and managed to gather some middle-of-the-road critical responses, including one from our very own David Baldwin:

While The Dictator may appear different than Borat and Brüno, it is very much the same idea as both films, packed with the same jokes and new ones that are more disturbing than they are hilarious.

Paramount will be bringing the film to Blu-Ray in a Blu-Ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack, which features an all-new unrated cut of the film that will run at 103 minutes, compared to the 83 minute theatrical cut. The film will be presented in 1080p with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track.

Here’s a list of the bonus content included on the disc:

Deleted and extended scenes:
Larry King interview
Music Video: Best Love Song – “Your Money’s On The Dresser”

The Dictator will be available for purchase on August 21st, 2012.
