"Jagshemash!" Borat is back, and you'll be able to watch his latest film on Amazon Prime before Election Day.
Amazon has acquired the rights to the sequel to the 2006 hit film "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," the which helped make Sacha Baron Cohen a household name and catapulted the comedian, writer, and producer to superstardom.
The acquisition was first reported by Deadline.
Amazon seemed to confirm the news, releasing a trailer for the film on Thursday on the Amazon Prime Twitter account.
The sequel will be titled "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" and will debut on October 23, 2020.
The film's title was originally announced as "Borat! Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan."
The original Borat film stars Cohen as Borat Sagdiyev, a journalist from Kazakhstan, a character that rose to prominence on the cult-classic "Da Ali G Show," as he travels the U.S. to make a documentary. The movie, which made $262.6 million on an $18 million budget and netted Cohen a Golden Globe award for Best Actor and an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay, featured mostly unscripted interactions with people who were unaware Cohen was portraying a character.
Deadline reports that the film was one of the first to be made during the COVID-19 shutdown. Reportedly, once shooting restrictions were eased and there was an agreement with unions about returning to shooting, the movie began filming the very next day.
According to Deadline, Cohen aimed to have the film finished before Election Day, which may have played into his decision to release the film on Amazon Prime.
Meanwhile, Deadline also reports that before Tuesday's debate, a Twitter account with the handle @KazakhstanGovt posted a video congratulating "Premier Trump" on his "victory" over Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the debate, with a voice-over that sounds like Borat.
