Fourteen years after shocking moviegoers around the world, Sacha Baron Cohen returns as his most iconic character in a sequel to the beloved cult film Borat: Cultural Learning of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm arrives on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 23 October, and follows the Kazakhstan journalist as he revisits the United States ahead of the 2020 election and amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s everything you need about Borat 2.
When is Borat 2 released?
Borat 2 will be out on October 23, and will be available to watch in the UK via the streaming service Amazon Prime video.
You can sign up to the service for £7.99 a month with a 30-day free trial.
Those in need of a refresher, the first Borat movie is also available on the streaming platform.
Is there a trailer?
A trailer for the film was released earlier in the month, and showed Borat trying to find a disguise after being recognised on his return to America.
The trailer sees Baron Cohen travelling round the United States with his daughter. Teasing some of the adventures the pair go, we see Borat getting caught up in the nationwide lockdown in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Borat is seen staying with two strangers for the lockdown period, and seen attempting to understand their views on the coronavirus.
The most shocking scene to be revealed is Baron Cohen crashing the 2019 Conservative Political Action Conference event dressed as Donald Trump.
Vice President Mike Pence was speaking at the event, and the trailer shows Baron Cohen being escorted out with a woman draped over his shoulder.
What is Borat 2 about?
Fourteen years after his first journey to the United States, Borat takes his daughter, Sandra Jessica Parker Sagdiyev (Maria Bakalova), to the country, with a hope that he can “gift her to someone close to the throne.”
The duo go on to reveal more about American culture, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the US election.
Because of the success of the first film, Borat has become a recognisable face in America, so the movie follows the character attempting to disguise himself with his daughter whilst they adventure around the country.
The full movie title is Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
The movie has already made headlines within the American media after it was revealed that Rudy Giuliani was one of the victims of Baron Cohen’s pranks.
Giuliani, who was the former mayor of New York and personal attorney to Donald Trump, is seen reaching into his trousers whilst in the bed with the actor playing Borat’s daughter.
Giuliani has dismissed the clip as a “complete fabrication”.
The original Borat was a box office success in 2006, grossing over $260 million worldwide.
Sacha Baron Choen went on to win the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical, and the film also landed an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
