Bruno Movie Poster


Universal Pictures has finally unleashed the official poster for Bruno, is Sacha Baron Cohen‘s follow-up to Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. I’m actually kinda surprise they didn’t go for something more outrageous. I’d definitely loving the tagline, “Borat was so 2006.” Check out the full poster after the jump.

Bruno Gets Rated R

People Sacha Baron Cohen

Universal has just announced that Sacha Baron Cohen‘s Borat follow-up Bruno has been given an R-Rating by the MPAA for “pervasive strong and crude sexual content, graphic nudity and language.” . This comes weeks after the initial cut of the movie was branded with the dreaded and unmarketable NC-17 rating.

At the time we were told that the filmmakers were “preparing a new edit to try out for an R and winding up an appeal against this initial MPAA decision”, so we’re really not sure which route was taken. If I were to guess, I would say that Universal presented the MPAA with a new cut of the movie, which fixed some of the “objectionable” sequences.

Bruno Red Band Movie Trailer

Universal has released the first movie trailer for Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen‘s follow-up to Borat. And guess what, it’s an international red band movie trailer. I’m at ShoWest and on the run, so don’t have much time to write up my first impressions, but thought I’d pass along this trailer before I have to run off. Watch the trailer after the jump and leave your thoughts in the comments below.

This is odd: a new story in The Mirror seems to be suggesting that Sacha Baron Cohen‘s Bruno is still a work in progress whereas just the other day we were talking about it’s submission to, and subsequent controversial certification by, the MPAA. Rather than presuming the entire story is bunkum, I’m thinking that The Mirror are just tangling a few things up or missing out the few facts that would help it all make sense. Either that or – shock horror – the MPAA are in the business of giving ratings to incomplete films.

Their report tells us that during the film, Bruno records a charity record called Dove of Peace. It’s reportedly a satire on the Band Aid-style collaborative charity track, and both Bono and Chris Martin have recorded contributions, with other stars lined up to take part too.

Let’s get one thing clear to begin with: there’s nothing wrong with the MPAA giving Bruno an NC-17 rating, but everything wrong with Universal then deciding to cut the film instead of release it intact and also, crucially, with cinema chains (and even adult audiences) turning a cold shoulder to NC-17 rated films.

Sharon Waxman has reported on the MPAA’s decision, and detailed a few bits and pieces from the film that may have convinced them. She also tells us what Sacha Baron Cohen and Co are currently doing, and what the likely outcome will be – in case we couldn’t guess.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Steve from Collider is a good friend of mine. At least a few times a week we talk about upcoming movies, TV shows, what gossip each of us have heard, and anything else we might find exciting. Since a number of our conversations cover things you also might find interesting, we’ve decided to start recording certain conversations as video blogs. Past video blogs have included The Future of the Batman Film Franchise, The Box Office Prospects of Watchmen and thoughts on the first 46 Minutes of Pixar’s Up.

We were recently talking about some of the movies coming out this summer and realized we should do some video blogs about the 2009 Summer Movie season. We were a little too ambitious, and thought we could squeeze two months worth of films into one blog, but as usually happens, we ran out of time. So the first two parts of our Summer movie preview were posted last week (you can watch part one here and part two here). In part 3, we take a look at the movies of July 2009: Public Enemies, Bruno, I Love You Beth Cooper, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Funny People, 500 Days of Summer. Please leave your thoughts on the movies of July 2009 in the comments below.
