Sacha Baron Cohen's "Borat" has grossed more than $100 million at the box office, but can the British comedian pull off another "mockumentary," this time in the guise of a gay Austrian fashionista? Universal Pictures has bet $42.5 million that he can. Before "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" became a box-office sensation, Universal agreed to pay the hefty premium for the actor's next film, "Bruno," which it will market and distribute.

Ukraine's Culture Ministry says it has banned Sacha Baron Cohen's new movie "Bruno" because it is immoral. The movie is centered around the adventures of a flamboyant gay fashion journalist from Austria. The ministry said this week that Baron Cohen's depictions of sexual organs, homosexual intercourse and language are obscene and improper. Some Austrian officials have spoken out against the film but have not taken any action against it. Baron Cohen's previous movie, "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," was banned in Kazakhstan and Russia.
