Borat 2 Subsequent Movie: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (also known as Borat 2) is an upcoming mockumentary comedy film written by and starring Sacha Baron Cohen as the comically inept and wildly antisemitic Kazakhstani television personality Borat Sagdiyev, who was introduced in F2F, and Da Ali G Show. The film is the sequel to 2006’s Borat.

It is scheduled to be released on October 23, 2020, on Amazon Prime Video

Borat 2 Subsequent Movie Production

Development

Rupert Murdoch announced in early February 2007 that Baron Cohen had signed on to do another Borat film with 20th Century Fox, distributor of the first film. Baron Cohen later claimed that Borat was to be discontinued, as he was now too well known to avoid detection as he did in the film and on Da Ali G Show.

A spokesman for Fox later stated that it was too early to begin planning such a film, although they were open to the idea. In 2014, he brought back Borat for the FXX series Ali G: Rezurection, a compilation of the sketches from Da Ali G Show with new footage. He also briefly appeared as Borat in December 2015 on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote the film Grimsby and again in November 2018 to encourage Americans to vote in that year’s midterm elections.

Filming

An early prank filmed in late 2019 involved a farcical interview with Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller. In February 2020, Baron Cohen was spotted dressed up as Donald Trump, interrupting the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), although his true identity was not revealed at the time. That same month, Baron Cohen traveled to Macon, Georgia to trick attendees of a fake cotillion.

In early July 2020, Baron Cohen arranged a fake interview with Rudy Giuliani, only to burst in during the conversation wearing a pink bikini; Giuliani called the police. A few weeks later, he was spotted performing pranks at a gun rally in Olympia, Washington, leading attendees to sing along with racist lyrics to an original song, and interviewing members of the crowd. The following month, he was spotted in Los Angeles dressed as Borat and filming, leading to speculation from the public that Baron Cohen’s next project was a Borat sequel. On two days of filming Baron Cohen was required to wear a bulletproof vest due to the possible threats of the scene.

In early September 2020, rumors began to circulate claiming that the film was completely shot, assembled, and screened for film industry executives; the title was originally leaked as Borat 2: Great Success and then Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan.

Borat 2 Subsequent Movie Release

In September 2020, Amazon Studios acquired distribution rights to the film and scheduled it for an October 23 release. The first trailer was released on October 1, 2020, confirming that several of Baron Cohen’s pranks were shot for this film. Baron Cohen joined social media outlets Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter in-character as Borat to comment on American politics in the run-up to the election and promote the film release.

Borat 2 Subsequent Movie Controversy

Borat 2 Subsequent Movie’s creators were sued for fraud after including an interview with Holocaust survivor Judith Dim Evans. Evans died before the film’s release but her heirs brought the lawsuit alleging that she did not consent to the commercial use of her likeness in the film.

Sacha Noam Baron Cohen (born 13 October 1971) is an English comedian, actor, writer, and producer. He is known for his creation and portrayal of fictional satirical characters, including Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, Brüno Gehard and Admiral General Aladeen. Like his idol Peter Sellers, Baron Cohen adopts a variety of accents and guises for his characters. He interacts with unsuspecting subjects, who do not realise they have been set up for self-revealing ridicule. On these interactions, The Observer states, “his career has been built on winding people up, while keeping a deadpan face”.

Baron Cohen is most known for his comedic performances in films such as Borat (2006), Bruno (2009), The Dictator (2012), Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) and Borat 2 Subsequent Movie. He is also known for voicing King Julien XIII in the Madagascar film series (2005–2012). Cohen has also appeared in dramatic films such as, Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Martin Scorsese’s Hugo (2011), Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables (2012) and Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020). He made a cameo as a BBC News Anchor in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013).

In 2016, Baron Cohen appeared in the comedy film Grimsby and co-starred in the fantasy sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass. Two years later, he created and starred in Who Is America? (2018) for Showtime, his first television project since Da Ali G Show (2000–2004), for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy. The following year, Baron Cohen portrayed Eli Cohen in the limited series The Spy for OCS and Netflix, for which he received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Miniseries or Television Film.
