Borat 2 hasn’t even launched yet, and Sacha Baron Cohen’s surprise sequel is already dominating headlines and causing quite a stir thanks to a damning scene featuring one of America’s top political figures. It’s also racking up positive reviews. So if you want to know exactly what everyone’s talking about, you’re definitely going to want to watch this one when it drops.
The sequel, officially titled Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, sees the return of Cohen as the title character, Borat Sadigyev, who returns to America from Khazakstan more than a decade after his first visit, with a mission to offer “prodigious bribe to American Regime”. This time, he’s accompanied by his daughter (played by Maria Bakalova), who might just be the bribe in question.
But Borat 2 won’t be following Cohen’s 2006 original into theaters, where it took home $262 worldwide. Instead, it’s heading directly to streaming on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, October 23. If you’re not familiar with the service, you might be wondering how to watch the Subsequent Moviefilm, so we’ve got a handy guide to make sure you don’t miss it.
