Look, I don’t know how you feel about “The Dictator.” Maybe you’re weirdly excited about it because you figure if the trailers and commercials are that bad, it just has to be because they are hiding all of the good stuff, since maybe — just maybe! — the people cutting those ads have decided that they have had it up to here [holds hand up to represent level where they may have had it] with advertisements that give away all of the best jokes or best scenes in any given movie. Or maybe you think it looks like a weak joke stretched into a tired movie, and maybe you’re actively trying to avoid Sacha Baron Cohen’s media appearances because you think every time you see him promote the movie “in character” (always in character, never out of character, not even when going to the Oscars to celebrate a movie he was in as an entirely different character) it will make you like him a little bit less, and so you are just going to change the channel or not click the links and hope that by the time the movie opens and flops and disappears Cohen won’t have done too much damage to at least your particular view of him.
Anyway, regardless, the teaser trailer for “Anchorman 2″ will precede the movie. Of course, that same teaser will be online in no time at all, so there’s really no point in paying to see a movie in theaters just to see a teaser trailer (as has been the case for more than a decade). So if you wanted to see the movie for reasons that you cannot fully understand, but at the same time you feel like you need an excuse for why you wound up buying that ticket, there you go.
