When Sacha Baron Cohen came out with Borat in 2006, the film and character instantly became a topic of conversation and controversy. Now, with the 2020 election only weeks away, Borat is returning to give Americans something to talk about once again.
Officially titled Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Cohen shot the film during the COVID-19 pandemic, and traveled both around the U.S. and the world to get the film finished in time for the US elections taking place on November 3rd. Throughout the trailer, we see Borat in similar situations as we did before, but with a 2020 twist.
With the original movie bringing in $262 million for FOX internationally in 2006, the sequel will hit Amazon Prime Video in late October amid the pandemic.
