In 2003, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has received immense success as well as down-pouring lawsuits for his extremely controversial comedy movie, "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan". Now, the 36-year-old is gearing up to introduce another potentially controversial movie, "Bruno", and for it, Universal Pictures have picked up a suitable summer release date.
The comedy movie that is developed from one of Cohen's noted characters in comedy television series "Da Ali G Show" is now set to be debuted on the big screen nationwide on May 15, 2009. It means that the movie about the eccentric gay Austrian fashion reporter will be up against "Angels & Demons", the prequel of "The Da Vinci Code" which stars Tom Hanks. The release of "Bruno" on that particular day will also mark the starter kick of the summer movie season since the date chosen has often been identified with the beginning of the summer movie season.
Directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Dan Mazer, "Bruno" is said to be highlighting the interviews of the titular character with unsuspecting guests, which allegedly include Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ben Affleck, about various topics, such as fashion, entertainment, celebrities and especially homosexuality. The movie is currently undergoing its production, which earlier has ignited "red alert" code among Wichita Mid-Continent Airport's security after it shot a stripping scene on the lobby of the airport.
