The “official opening scene” of Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming film “The Dictator” has been released to the public.

“The Dictator”, which is scheduled to open in the United States on May 16th, is believed to be somewhat based on Saddam Hussein’s book “Zabibah and the King”, while many of the actual speeches featured in the film, from world leaders such as President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron were directed at former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi before his fall from power and eventual death in late 2011.

Cohen and his featured character General Aladeen in the upcoming film made news at this year’s Academy Awards when Ryan Seacrest was interviewing Cohen on the red carpet.
