After unveiling a series of first-look images, COMING 2 AMERICA has released its first trailer and Eddie Murphy is back as King Akeem along with familiar faces from the original film and some new blood joining in on all the fun.
Directed by Craig Brewer, Coming 2 America finds Akeem (Murphy) learning that he has a long-lost son in the United States and now he must return to America to meet the unlikely heir to the throne of Zamunda. Penned by Kenya Barris, Barry W. Blaustein, and David Sheffield, with story by Blaustein, David Sheffield, and Justin Kanew, the film also stars Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, Louie Anderson, John Amos, Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Jermaine Fowler, Bella Murphy, Rotimi, KiKi Layne, Nomzamo Mbatha and Teyana Taylor.
Coming 2 America will hit Amazon Prime Video on March 5, 2021. The film was originally going to hit screens on December 18, 2020, via Paramount Pictures but the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many studios to seek out other options to release their films and, in the case of Paramount Pictures, that means selling them off to other entities. When it was all said and done, Paramount released the film to Amazon for $125 million in a global rights deal.
