Borat is back. Great success!
It’s the news all comedy fans have been waiting for, the return of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat and the first trailer for Borat 2 has finally landed and the good news is, we don’t have long to wait at all.
A few weeks ago, it was rumoured that Baron Cohen had finished filming a sequel to 2006’s Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan during the COVID-19 pandemic, and whilst some questioned the truth of the rumours, it’s now absolutely clear that Kazakstan’s most infamous reporter will be making a return to our screens!
Amazon Prime dropped the 30-second teaser trailer today and gave fans a quick glimpse into what we can expect from the film, but as well as this, the first official trailer has been released… and it doesn’t disappoint.
Check out the brand new trailer below.
It’s been 14 years since the first film, but Sacha Baron Cohen appears to have carried on exactly where he left off with the character and has taken things to the extreme once again; by trying to fight the invisible coronavirus with a frying pan, supposedly impregnating his daughter and dressing up as Donald Trump…
In fact, according to reports, given the embarrassing and dangerous situations that Borat often finds himself in, Baron Cohen even had to wear a bulletproof vest whilst filming. I think it’s safe to say that the return of Borat in these difficult times is exactly what 2020 needed.
As well as the teaser trailer, Amazon Prime has also released the first poster for the film and even that, amazingly, is newsworthy. The poster shows Borat lying down, completely naked, with only a face mask covering his private parts with the tagline “Wear Mask. Save Live”. So it looks as though even the famous mankini will be making a return of some sorts!
The sequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery Of Prodigious Bribe To American Regime For Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, or Borat 2, as it will no doubt be called, was filmed secretly during the coronavirus pandemic and is set to be released on October 23, just before the US Election.
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery Of Prodigious Bribe To American Regime For Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan will be released on Amazon Prime Video on October 23.
