‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’: Here’s When and Where You Can Stream the ‘Borat’ Sequel
‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ is a sequel to Cohen’s award-winning 2006 movie
Cohen’s film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan was received with commercial and critical acclaim when it was released in 2006. The movie earned $26.4 million on its opening weekend and has since grossed over $260 million worldwide.
The film also earned numerous accolades, including an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. And for his performance as the dimwitted Kazakh journalist, Cohen won his first Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical.
‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ premieres on Oct. 23
Unlike the prequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm will not be getting a theatrical release. Amazon Studios acquired the rights to the sequel and will be releasing the film on its streaming platform.
The new movie premieres on Oct. 23 on Amazon Prime Video. And it will be available to viewers with an active Prime membership. And for those without a subscription, Amazon is offering a 30-day free trial.
The new movie features a few unwitting cameos
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan picks up with Borat Sagdiyev in modern-day, as he travels from his home country to America during the pandemic. Along for the ride is his 15-year-old daughter, Tutar Sagdiyev (Maria Bakalova).
The father and daughter duo head to America, where Borat hopes to find Vice President Mike Pence. His mission is to leave a significant gift with Pence to earn the favor of President Trump. With Trump on his side, Borat hopes to avoid the death sentence he faces in Kazakhistan.
But during their escapades, Tutar and Borat encounter a few real-life politicians. Vice President Mike Pence unwittingly makes a cameo in the movie, along with former NYC mayor, Rudy Giuliani.
The ‘Borat’ sequel was filmed in secret
Cohen made headlines earlier this year when he appeared in disguise at several political events. In February, the comedian interrupted the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) dressed as Donald Trump.
In June, he showed up at an alt-right rally disguised as a folk singer. And in July, Giuliani announced that he encountered Cohen in drag at a New York City hotel.
Initially, fans speculated Cohen was filming material for a new season of his Showtime series, Who Is America?. But when he was spotted filming dressed as Borat in September, it became clear he had been filming the sequel all along.
