The Dictator Blu-ray Release Date, Details and Pre-Order

The Dictator Blu-ray Release Date, Details and Pre-OrderSacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on August 21 in a “banned and unrated” version unseen in theaters that offers substantially more General Aladeen to enjoy or stomach, whichever your preference may be.

Along with The Dictator Blu-ray announcement comes a message from General Aladeen himself, “My film is funnier than equal rights for women, as gut-busting as a UN resolution and more hilarious than watching a student set himself on fire. Owning a copy of my glorious and award-winning film will give you more pleasure than having Halle Berry rub almond oil into your buttocks while you stimulate her bint al-sahn with your mashloof… and it will cost you considerably less money,” he said. “Although my film was subjected to the infamous authoritarian censorship of the West, thanks to Blu-ray and DVD you can finally see all the really naughty bits. I have your home address, so trust me, you WILL love it.”

Those naughty bits that comprise the “banned and unrated” version total up about 20 minutes of all-new footage added back into the film, with the theatrical cut also being available via seamless branching. An additional 30 minutes of deleted and extended scenes.
