Amazon Studios has revealed the full title of Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming Borat Subsequent Moviefilm and will launch the mockumentary on Prime on October 23.
The full name of the sequel is Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery Of Prodigious Bribe To American Regime For Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan.
Amazon dropped a first trailer in which Borat is seen gate-crashing a speech by vice president Mike Pence while dressed as Donald Trump and carrying an actor playing Borat’s daughter over his shoulder.
The comedy’s strategic release before the US election on November 3 is likely to become a major talking point, given Baron Cohen’s ability to expose intolerance through the character of his fictitious roving Kazakh reporter.
The British comic secretly filmed in recent months in the US and other countries.
It is understood Baron Cohen and his crew waited until Covid-19 restrictions lifted before commencing the clandestine shoot as quickly as possible.
Amazon Studios had not commented at time of writing, however the film could figure prominently in awards season were there to be a campaign.
In 2007 the original Borat earned a best adapted screenplay Oscar nomination and won a Golden Globe for best comedy or musical actor.
Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan opened via Fox in 2006 and became a cultural and commercial sensation, grossing $262.6m worldwide in a roughly even split between North America ($128.5m) and international ($134m).
Baron Cohen currently stars in awards contender The Trial Of The Chicago 7 for Netflix. Prior film credits include Brüno, The Dictator, Hugo, and Les Misérables.
He recently appeared in TV mini-series The Spy on Netflix, and Showtime series Who Is America aired earlier this summer.
The comic sprung to fame after regular appearances as the fictitious youth culture presenter Ali G on UK TV show The 11 O’ Clock Show before the character got his own TV headliner, Da Ali G Show.
