Amazon Prime Video will be unveiling Borat Supplemental Reportings this May.
Sacha Baron Cohen’s journalist from Kazakhstan returned to our screens last year for the mockumentary sequel Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Directed by Jason Woliner, the film was picked up by Amazon Studios for release ahead of the US presidential elections and was Oscar nominated in the process.
“Sacha Baron Cohen’s sequel lacks focus and laughs but some standout scenes and moments of satirical genius make this essential viewing,” we wrote in our review.
Now, Amazon is unleashing from previously unseen footage from the sequel as a multi-part special, combining behind-the-scenes footage with extended scenes. Titled Borat Supplemental Reportings Retrieved from Floor of Stable Containing Editing Machine, it comprises three episodes: the first part will be called Borat: VHS Cassette of Material Deemed Sub-Acceptable by Kazakhstan Ministry of Censorship and Circumcision. The second part will be called Borat’s American Lockdown. The third is called Debunking Borat.
The collection will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on 25th May. Here’s the trailer:

Amazon to release Borat sequel before US election
30th September 2020
Amazon Studios has snapped up the worldwide rights to Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat sequel and will release it worldwide online before the US election.
Borat Sagdiyev, a character who began on Cohen’s Ali G Show, is a naive Kazakhstani journalist who got his own solo feature outing in 2006. That was titled Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and saw Borat travel to the USA to make a documentary.
Since then, Cohen has gone to give a film to his other character Bruno, and then returned to TV screens with Showtime’s satirical Who Is America, which saw Cohen put himself in jeopardy as he went undercover to capture modern America and its biases on camera.
In the past week, reports have surfaced of Cohen bringing back Borat for a sequel, with Cohen filming the mockumentary as surreptitiously as possible with a minimal crew while coronavirus restrictions were eased. According to a filing with the WGA, the title will be Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan, which gives an inkling of what the movie might be about – although that title has not yet been confirmed, leaving the actual contents of the film a mystery.
What we do know now, however, is that Amazon has stepped up to distribute the film – and will do so in late October to make the film as widely available as possible before the US elections. Deadline, which broke the news, reports that Cohen wore a bulletproof vest on two different filming days during production, with an eye to get the film ready in time for the November vote.
