Universal has chosen May 15th, 2009, to debut its upcoming R rated comedy Bruno. According to Variety, this will be the same day that Ron Howard's The Da Vinci Code sequel Angels and Demons hits theaters.
Bruno is Sasha Baron Cohen's follow-up to the 2006 smash comedy hit Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Bruno is a gay fashion reporter that originally made his first appearance on Cohen's Channel Four Da Ali G Show in the UK. The film will be shot like a documentary, much in the same vein as Borat.
So, prepare to be offended come May 15th, as no subject is too controversial for Bruno.
