2020 may be a train wreck inside of a dumpster fire, but at least we will have everyone’s favorite Kazakh journalist, Borat Sagdiyev, to help us make sense of it all. It was reported recently that a sequel to 2006’s Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan had already been filmed in secret, and now we know it will premiere on October 23 on Amazon Prime Video.
The movie’s official title is Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and stars Sacha Baron Cohen as the titular character, an outlandish Kazakh reporter deeply unfamiliar with American culture interacting with real-life people in a hidden camera-type format. The first Borat movie became a cultural giant in the mid-aughts, inspiring millions of people to try on their best Borat impression to this very day.
The character originally appeared in Da Ali G Show, Cohen’s comedy series that ran from 2000 – 2004 in the UK. Another movie based on a Da Ali G Show character, Brüno, was released in 2009.
Watch the trailer below. Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm will be available to stream on October 23 on Amazon Prime Video. Very nice!
