Borat 2, or as its fully titled: Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan, is a comedy film written by and starring Sacha Baron Cohen (Hugo, Brüno) as the comically inept and wildly racist Kazakhstani television personality Borat Sagdiyev introduced in F2F and Da Ali G Show and serves as the sequel to the 2006 film Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
The plot finds Borat believing he’s a big star following his 2006 fame, so he tries to disguise himself — It’s ‘Cohen playing Borat playing Cohen’. The first Borat was a big success, grossing $262 million worldwide for Fox and received an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Borat 2 will premiere on Amazon Prime and you can know further details and exclusive news about the sequel below.
