'The Dictator': Preview Shows Sacha Baron Cohen Spooking Fellow Helicopter Passengers (VIDEO)

With just over a week to go until Sacha Baron Cohen's The Dictator hits UK cinemas, another preview has been unveiled, this one featuring Cohen sporting a hairnet and terrifying US helicopter passengers.

It follows on from the last trailer for the forthcoming film from the Borat creator, which showed The Dictator being abducted by agents of the United States government, stripped of his clothing, money and - horrifyingly - beard, before being sent back out into the wilds of New York.

Last week it was claimed Cohen's character, The Dictator's General Aladeen, has been refused airtime by TV and radio at the BBC, one of many recent - publicity-building, obviously - controversies surrounding the character.

A BBC spokesperson told The Sun:The Sun: "Our chat shows thrive on the spontaneous banter between guests and the presenter, something you don’t get when people come on as characters. We’d love to have Sacha on as himself."

The Dictator is in cinemas 16 May 2012.
