Issue 39 / 2012 www.guestlist.netFILM 29 7 COMING SOON... THE DICTATOR 16th MAY The summer smash you have all been waiting for is here! That Sacha Baron Cohen's let's-dress-up- and-offend-people shtick hasn't worn thin yet is a testament to his unquestionable level of talent and dedication to his art. For the duration of their respective marketing cam- paigns, Borat and Brüno were more than just future Halloween costumes – they were liv- ing, breathing threats to public safety. The Dictator follows Baron Cohen's latest cre- ation General Aladeen as he takes an ill-fated trip to America where he loses his beard and is forced to join the rabble on the streets of New York. Director Larry Charles rather bravely ditches the mockumentary slant of Borat and Brüno, but improvisation is still their number one asset. Paired with such gifted comics as Anna Faris, John C. Reilly and The Office's B.J. Novak, Baron Cohen wrings laughs from every scene and works hard to keep the sense spontaneity intact despite the more conventional approach. PROMETHEUS June 1st Ridley Scott's Alien update – neither a sequel or a prequel, but sharing "similar DNA" – is easily one of the most anticipated film events of the year. If it's fantastic trailer is anything to go by (and by law, it really shouldn't be) then we're surely in for another masterpiece. A FANTASTIC FEAR OF EVERYTHING June 8th Simon Pegg stars as a children's author turned crime novelist whose sanity dissolves in the face of his unwavering obsession with Victorian serial killers. SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN June 1st Charlize Theron's Evil Queen is after Kristen Stewart's blood in this dark spin on the classic tale.
