Bruno Movie and Star Sacha Baron Cohen are about to explode onto movie theaters worldwide.
What is it about Sacha Baron Cohen that makes people laugh and enjoy themselves deliriously, or demonize him and call him bad names? Lowbrow comedy or high art form, movie star Sacha Baron Cohen knows how to connect with his audience. I think he is very funny because he puts himself into hysterical, unpolitically correct situations. Sometimes he goes a bit overboard like his recent appearance on the MTV Movie Awards.
Borat and Bruno movies
We all came to know Sacha Baron Cohen through his monster hit Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan which was a monster box-office hit in 2006.
Now Sacha Baron Cohen has come back for another helping of super-stardom. His new movie is titled Bruno and this movie shows the title character dressed in provocative clothing and involved in various scenes and uncomfortable interactions with other individuals. This movie is set for debut on July 10, 2009, in the United States. Cohen is in full publicity mode and recently appeared on the MTV Movie Awards.
Recent Controversy at the MTV Movie Awards
Everyone knows the old adage about how there is no such thing as bad publicity. True to form, Sacha Baron Cohen knows how to generate publicity and he gets more than enough for his movies. He gets a lot of lawsuits too because he makes people uncomfortable and some people don’t like to be made the butt of jokes or to be shown in negative, unflattering positions.
A recent controversy erupted when Sacha baron Cohen “fell” into Eminem’s face during the MTV movie awards. Some people thought it was hilarious; others thought it was crude and distasteful. An article on SFGate.com described the event as a “fake mishap.” Maybe Cohen goes a little too far in his stunts but as long as nobody gets hurt then it is not that big of a deal.
There is no doubt that Sacha Baron Cohen will have a hit movie with Bruno. We will have to wait for the final box office numbers to see if Bruno can make as much money as the spectacular breakout hit that Borat accomplished out of nowhere.
Sacha Baron Cohen is a very funny and talented comedian and actor who knows what audiences want and knows how to capitalize on his comedic skills and abilities for accidents and impressions. There is no doubt that Sacha Baron Cohen has another breakout hit coming soon that will have audiences around the world talking over the water cooler about what this actor did in his latest movie and how outrageous or offensive it was. Get ready, world, for Sacha Baron Cohen. He is about to be unleashed on all of us and you can bet that a lot of us will be rolling down the aisles and laughing nonstop to Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest hilarious antics.
