Amazon has released a new trailer for director Craig Brewer and Eddie Murphy’s Coming 2 America, the long-awaited sequel of the hit 1988 comedy Coming To America. This new trailer is brilliant, and it’s packed with new footage from the movie, and it revealed some aspects of the story. Coming 2 America is also going to give some hilarious and nostalgic moments!
The story is set in the green and rich country of Zamunda, and the story “continues to follow newly-crowned King Akeem and his trusted confidante Semmi as they embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that has them traversing the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens, New York – where it all began.”
The sequel highlights the return of Murphy as Akeem and Arsenio Hall as Semmi. Murphy and Hall actually play multiple roles in the film, which you’ll see in the trailer. They are joined by James Earl Jones as King Jaffe Joffer, Shari Headley as Queen Lisa, John Amos as Cleo McDowell, and Louie Anderson as Maurice, as well as the motley barbershop crew. New cast members include Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Jermaine Fowler, Bella Murphy, Rotimi, KiKi Layne, Nomzamo Mbatha, and Teyana Taylor.
Coming 2 America will be released exclusively on Prime Video on March 5, 2021. I am super excited!
