'Borat' Interrupts Mike Pence's Speech in Amazon's Sequel Trailer (VIDEO)
Borat's back! Amazon has secured the rights to the sequel for 2006's Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
The movie, which was shot during the COVID-19 shutdown, will see Sacha Baron Cohen revisit his titular character, Khazak reporter Borat Sagdiyev, just in time for a pre-Election Day debut. According to Deadline, the new film went into production just as stay-at-home restrictions were eased.
Joined by a minimal crew, Baron Cohen flew across the United States and internationally for footage. The character of Borat was originally introduced to fans in Baron Cohen's 2000-2004 series Da Ali G Show and made his feature film debut with the aforementioned hit film known by most as Borat.
As with most of his projects, including Borat's follow-up Brüno and the 2018 Showtime series Who Is America, Baron Cohen risked his life various times while shooting scenes for this sequel. He reportedly wore a bulletproof vest on a few occasions as he infiltrated circles of unwitting individuals.
Fans can expect more scenarios featuring his classic approach of exposing the true nature of people by putting them in unusual situations and capturing their reactions. The news isn't entirely surprising as videos of Baron Cohen in character as Borat began circulating the internet earlier this year.
The comedian worked to get the film done before Election Day and hopes to reach as many viewers as possible with this Amazon acquisition considering many theaters are shut down due to the pandemic. Just in time before the November 3rd election, the sequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, will debut on Amazon beginning Friday, October 23.
In anticipation of the film's release, Amazon unveiled the first trailer which features plenty of NSFW antics and hi-jinks. Don't miss the fun, below, and catch Borat Subsequent Moviefilm when it arrives on Amazon later this month.
