Fans of the movie Borat will be excited to know that the sequel Borat 2 will be coming to Amazon Prime on October 23rd just in time for Election Day November 3rd!
Sacha Baron Cohen will reprise his role as the ridiculously stupid but funny immigrant from Kazakhstan. The Politically intriguing sequel was shot after the places starting allowing filming. It was shot all over the world including the United States and had to have Cohen wear at a few points a bullet proof vest because of how he was trying to stir the pot. One example was a Conservative Rally in Washington State where he was trying to get spectators to sing racially insensitive lyrics.
CAA Media Finance made the distribution deal, and all of the major streaming services were interested in the sequel, seeing how the film film grossed $262 million worldwide. Universal provided assistance to Borat 2 due to its relationship with Cohen, but the movie belongs to him.
Borat wasn’t just a box office hit among frat boys either, as the film’s screenplay was nominated for an Oscar, and Cohen won a Golden Globe for playing the prankster from Kazakhstan. The full title of the first film was Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, and the sequel is rumored to be titled Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan.
