Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘The Dictator’ Is A Movie & An App

Sacha Baron Cohen is no stranger to controversy. With his next movie The Dictator due out in May, he has already rustled up some feathers while dumping copious amounts of pancake mix on the red carpet and Ryan Seacrest.

You remember this, don’t you?

We have yet to delve into what this next film is about exactly but we have come across the app that accompanies said movie. The app has been released with the following information:

Pampered Western Youth! In a lifelike simulation of what will happen at this year’s World Games, my nation’s finest computer scientists have created a Wadiyan Games app where I neutralize all other opponents and win every gold medal! Hafla!

The Wadiyan Games lets you step into the shoes of the General Aladeen and compete in his four favorite events – running, swimming, fencing and boxing. You can also upload a headshot and pose alongside the General Aladeen and share the picture on Facebook, Twitter and email! The game also features the ultimate finishing moves for each event. Additional sporting events and backdrops can be unlocked with in-app purchase. The app was blessed by General Aladeen and based on the upcoming Paramount Pictures feature film The Dictator in theaters nationwide starting May 16, 2012.

We aren’t exactly sure if that last statement is true or not. Here are some stills from the game:

What do you think about the movie? Is this something you’d check out?
