Early Twitter Buzz: Sacha Baron Cohen's Bruno At SXSW

Universal Pictures premiered 22 minutes of footage from Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat follow-up Bruno at SXSW, and judging from the early buzz — Cohen has another monster hit on his hands. It seems like Bruno is going to be even more controversial and even more offensive. While not many media outlets in Austin has reported in, I thought I'd take a look at some of the reaction from twitter. Tomorrow we'll have a full round-up from the blogs/web:


rodneydp: Bruno scenes suggest a film that is more aggressive, more offensive and better executed than Borat. Very, very good.


evilry: The sneak peak of Bruno was outrageous, insane, offensive and incredibly hysterical. It trumps Borat, if you can believe that.


indigoprime: Bloody hell, the Bruno movie makes Borat look like kids TV. See it. Out in June. Bloody fantastically awful!

EricDSnider: The 'Bruno' footage we saw Sunday night was legendary. I'm not sure I've ever laughed so hard at anything. And I don't even like humor!

jamesrocchi: 3 scenes from Bruno? Funny. Wildly, paralytically funny and brilliantly trasgressive; the proverbial button gets pushed to individual atoms.

More after the jump.


shawnlevy: Laughed so much at "bruno" that i feel like i had a cardio workout
