Even though Sacha Baron Cohen reportedly had the police called on him over 90 times when making the first Borat movie back in 2006 (which was heftily entitled Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan), now fourteen years later he’s brought the over-the-top, daringly hilarious character “Borat Sagdiyev” back again in Borat 2. At least that’s what the fans are calling it.
But, as you see above, the title of the first one reflected the way that Borat actually spoke, and is a lengthy one. In fact, many reporters, when referring to it, instead of saying it all the way out, just refer to it as “Whatever the actual full title was…” as did popular film critic John Campea on his show in early September of 2020.
Well, let’s firstly get the name of the film correct, because ever since fans heard that Cohen had secretly finished developing the movie a little while back, they have been looking forward to finally seeing it. According to the trailer that was released by One Media on October 1st, 2020 (as well as The Los Angeles Times article that was released on the same day), the official name of the new film is Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
There were reportedly several lawsuits brought up against makers of the first Borat movie from unexpectedly-filmed people who were apparently caught off guard by the character in various locations, and ended up “looking like fools on camera”, according to the movie review YouTube channel, New Film. There is no telling what is going to happen with this new one!
When you see the trailer, you’ll realize that it very well could render those same results, and also know that you’re going to laugh your ass off once more in this sequel where Borat returns to what he refers to as “Yankee Land” during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Background of Sacha Baron Cohen
The first Borat character in 2006 was so brilliant, edgy and funny that Cohen got criticism from many for what the Encyclopedia of World Biography describes as “the character’s rampant Anti-Semitism”. The Anti-Defamation League actually went to the extent of making a statement about the movie, being that Cohen’s audaciously bold comedic style had some viewers confused as to whether some of what he was doing was a joke or not.
Born in London, England with the full given name of Sacha Noam Baron Cohen on October 13, 1971, the new 2020 Borat movie Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan will be released just ten days after his birthday.
The British actor actually studied history at Cambridge before he decided to go into entertainment, and was best known in the late 1990’s for his hip-hop journalist character on The 11’Oclock Show named “Ali G”.
It is predicted that fans of the first one will love this sequel just as much, if not more.
