'Borat 2' set to premiere on Amazon Prime before US election


Borat 2, the eagerly anticipated new film from Sacha Baron Cohen, is set to arrive on streaming platform Amazon Prime ahead of the forthcoming US presidential election in November.

The sequel to 2006 effort Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan will debut in late October ahead of Election Day, according to Deadline. The movie will launch around the world in 240 countries on the streaming platform. It was revealed earlier this week that the film is titled, Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan – we think we’ll stick to calling it Borat 2.

Last month Sacha Baron Cohen was spotted in character as the unlucky Kazakh journalist last month, the comedian was seen driving a yellow pick-up truck while sporting the character’s distinctive thick moustache and a tan suit in Long Beach, Los Angeles.

It was also reported that the upcoming sequel for a select few industry figures ahead of its forthcoming release. Cohen is credited with writing the screenplay alongside his collaborators Anthony Hines, Dan Swimer, Peter Baynham, Erica Rivinoja, Dan Mazer, Jena Friedman, and Lee Kern.

Borat was last seen in a sketch on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that saw Sacha Baron Cohen bring back the much-loved character in November 2019 which focused on “election tampering”.

It’s alleged that the comic actor, infiltrated a rally in Washington on June 27 organised by far-right group the Three Percenters, billed as ‘March for Our Rights 3’, and took to the stage dressed as a country singer — which it’s unknown what the elaborate prank was for.
