Borat: The Film
The film opened at number one in the U.S., taking in $26.4 million on a limited release of 837 screens during its first weekend, beating out Fahrenheit 9/11 as the biggest opening weekend for a film released in under 1,000 theaters. Borat celebrated the release of the film with a host of promotional 'in-character' interviews, like this one with stv.tv. However, on November 9, 2006 the Russian Federal Agency for Culture and Cinematography banned the movie, citing "it could offend viewers in relation to certain ethnic groups and religions." The film expanded its release on the second weekend to 2,566 screens, where it took in an additional $29 million.
