Borat has done some great business for Amazon prime, with Borat Subsequent Moviefilm being nominated for countless awards throughout the awards season, and generating lots of buzz and views. And while Sacha Baron Cohen May have “cancelled himself and all his characters” on Sunday, that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of Borat.
The streamer isn’t quite done with the Kazakhstan journalist yet. Amazon has announced that on May 25th, Borat (played of course by Sacha Baron Cohen) will be the subject of a multi-part on the streaming network that will be made up of three parts.
Part one – Borat: VHS Cassette of Material Deemed “Sub-acceptable” by Kazakhstan Ministry of Censorship and Circumcision – will be composed of never before scenes from the film. This was a project that we first learned about a few weeks ago when Amazon released the initial teaser trailer. And just because the scenes didn’t make it into the film doesn’t mean it won’t be worth checking out!
The second – Borat’s American Lockdown – is described as a “reality show,” from when Borat was on lockdown in America with his new conspiracy theorist friends, Jim and Jerry.
And speaking of Jim and Jerry, they actually make up the third component of the special. Debunking Borat showcases the two as they have their conspiracy theories debunked by very knowledgeable people. And they even come face to face with one of the subjects of their conspiracies, Hillary Clinton.
So Borat fans have a lot to get excited about next week! Very nice!!
