Though the trailer for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is pretty damn epic and amazing, the biggest news of the past 24 hours has been the death of Kim Jong Il, the North Korean dictator who led the country for the last 17 years. Because of his strict policies and bizarre propaganda machine (not to mention the portrayal in Team America: World Police), the death of the political leader has been the butt of many jokes over the course of the last day. But not everyone is happy about Kim Jong Il's death - in fact, some people are downright upset about it. Take, for example, Admiral General Aladeen from the upcoming film The Dictator.
The iron-fisted leader has sent out an official statement via the Republic of Wadiya Twitter account expressing his sadness over the death of his personal friend and extending his thoughts to Il's family. See Aladeen's full statement below.
Almost makes you wish that Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi had stuck around a little bit longer so that they could die during the promotional campaign as well. The Dictator arrives in theaters on May 11, 2012 and you can learn more about the film in our Blend Film Database.
