Borat 2 Will Be Released On Amazon Prime Next Month
The sequel to the Borat movie will be released in October this year.
Amazon has bought the rights to stream Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm. Very nice.
This comes after reports claimed the creators of the movie wanted to get it out ahead of the upcoming presidential election in the US in order to reach younger voters.
According to reports, Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays Borat, had to wear bullet proof vests on numerous occasions while filming the sequel, as there were concerns for his safety.
The original 2006 movie was called Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
Unnamed sources told Collider that the sequel finds Borat under the impression that he has become a successful movie star, given his newfound fame in the wake of the first film.
The Kazakh journalist responds to this by attempting to disguise himself from the public, even going so far as to conduct interviews incognito.
One source suggested to the media outlet that the film will be 'Cohen playing Borat playing Cohen'. Oof, meta.

It's understood that US President Donald Trump and deceased paedophile Jeffrey Epstein will be targeted in the film.
Last month, 48-year-old Cohen was spotted filming in Los Angeles in full Borat garb.
A clip shared on social media appeared to show the actor and comedian wearing a grey-coloured suit and sporting his instantly recognisable moustache while in a yellow pick-up truck in Long Beach.
In front of the pick-up was a van containing a film crew.
Cohen was also seen in the full Borat gear in 2018 - in a post on Instagram, he shared a snap of himself (as Borat) posing with an ID card, that didn't appear to belong to him, and an 'I've voted' sticker. He captioned the photo: "I voted, Great Success."
And that's not all - he was reportedly spotted in character at a right-wing rally held in Washington in June, prompting fans to believe he might be making a second season of Who Is America.
The organiser of the rally, Matt Marshall, told NPR that a week before the event, a California-based group called Back to Work USA contacted them out of the blue and offered to pay for the everything.
But on the day, there was an addition to the musical line-up and a man, believed to Cohen, got on stage.
According to reports, the 'singer' was eventually rushed out of the rally and disappeared without a trace after tricking the protesters into singing a racist song.
