Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020, D: Woliner) S: Sacha Baron Cohen - GREAT SUCCESS!

Great success indeed!! And with todayís political climate in the US, he should have enough material for 2 through 9 - just like Avatar! And if this article is accurate, itís already been filmed.

I’m sure Republicans still will believe it. That was his primary Target in the first one.

The character is just too well known. Maybe it’s something outside of the box. Maybe it’s a scripted film.

Knowing how Cohen does these types of things, I have no doubt most of it was non-scripted. And he probably pulled it off just as good as the first time. Here’s the possible storyline, according to the article:
Spoiler:
So what can we expect from Borat 2? According to Collider’s sources, the sequel follows Borat Sagdiyev thinking he’s a big movie star after the original Borat movie was so successful. As such, he hides from the public by pretending to be someone else and starts interviewing people while donning this disguise. The premise is described as “Cohen playing Borat playing Cohen.”

A few weeks ago a guy posted this footage of them filming: https://www.tiktok.com/@alexandheir/...99242401975558

Sounds like it has also been test screened as well.

I wonder if him singing that racist song at the 3%er rally (or whatever it was) ends up being in the movie.

re: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020, D: Woliner) S: Sacha Baron Cohen - GREAT SUCCESS!

In what would have been a nice surprise premiering on a streaming service around election week, today news has leaked that Sacha Baron Cohen has not only secretly shot a sequel to his 2006 hit mockumentary Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, but it’s already been completed.

Collider has the report and we can also confirm a test screening took place last week. In a meta story, the film follows Borat as he’s now a famous figure and so to hide from the public, he pretends to be someone else. With the current meme-worthy title of Great Success, we’ve learned from sources that Trump and Epstein’s relationship, as well as the coronavirus, all figure into the main narrative with cameos from Mike Pence, Rudy Giuliani, and more best left unspoiled. We’ve also learned that one of the yet-to-be-revealed cameos could potentially derail a political career, and we imagine some backlash and lawsuits will follow.

While the test screening didn’t reveal who directed the sequel nor which studio was involved, the original was helmed by Larry Charles and went on to gross over a quarter of a billion dollars at the worldwide box office. We imagine those backing the project would want it out near the election considering the plot, so expect to hear official news very soon. In the meantime, check out some footage captured on set earlier this year below.

re: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020, D: Woliner) S: Sacha Baron Cohen - GREAT SUCCESS!

Coming to Amazon next month:

EXCLUSIVE: Amazon Studios has acquired worldwide rights to the sequel of the 2006 film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. The film, which stars Sacha Baron Cohen in the title role once again,will premiere late October on Amazon Prime and its subscribers in 240 countries and territories.

The Borat sequel was the first movie made during the COVID-19 shutdown, shot surreptitiously as quickly as coronavirus shooting restrictions were eased, and unions were in agreement on a return to shooting. When that happened, Baron Cohen and his team were filming the movie the next day with a minimal crew.

Baron Cohen and cohorts flew to various parts of the U.S. and internationally to shoot the film. As he did on the first Borat, the follow-up film BrŁno, and his Showtime summer series Who Is America, Baron Cohen risked his life multiple times to shoot the scenes in this film. Indeed, I’m told by sources that he had to wear a bulletproof vest on two different shooting days and on many days, there were risky and dangerous scenarios in shooting. Baron Cohen managed to do a good job keeping the film under wraps, though word of it has leaked a bit after it wrapped and CAA Media Finance showed it to buyers and set the distribution deal.

Baron Cohen rushed to have the film ready to open before Election Day. The first film was a big success, grossing $262 million worldwide for Fox. Given the fact that that studio was swallowed by Disney, and theatrical releases are more perilous than ever in the pandemic, they decided the best way for the movie to be seen by its widest audience before Election Day was to open on Amazon Prime before the end of October. So it will be on Prime that Baron Cohen does what he has turned into a singular art form: going undercover to get people to reveal their true selves and their often unflattering biases, with only the slightest provocation.

Maybe her can get away with this since the first movie was never released on Blu-ray
