The trailer for Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen’s eagerly-awaited follow-up to Borat, has hit the web via MySpace. Be warned, though, it’s a red-band, and is particularly naughty.

Like the trailer for Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, the Bruno teaser immediately establishes goodwill by reminding you of Borat’s triumph. This, though, is a very different film. Whereas Borat was a documentary-style film, shot on the lam, in which an oblivious Borat travelled across the US causing chaos and outrage with his shocking and politically incorrect attitudes and observations, Bruno is a documentary-style film, shot on the lam, in which an oblivious Bruno, an Austrian fashion model who, to quote Brass Eye, is gay as a window, travels across the US causing chaos and outrage with his shocking and politically incorrect attitudes and obs… oh.

We won’t mind that this is essentially the same film, though, as long as the genius Cohen – the new Peter Sellers, don’t you know – brings the funny. And, judging from this early glimpse, bring it he has, with an absolute commitment to gags that push the envelope, and staying in character. We thought this at the time of Borat, but acting this committed, courageous and brilliant simply should not be overlooked when they start handing out Oscar noms.

Anyway, I won’t spoil the comedy – you’ll have to watch the trailer yourself (if you’re underage, I’m sure you’ll figure out a way to circumvent the dastardly age certification system) to see the goodies (almost literally). But I will give you one truly brilliant line that will have you chuckling throughout the day: ‘how do you defend yourself against a man with two dildos?’ A question which Movieblaze has often pondered long into the night…
