Get a fresh look at the sequel to 1988’s ‘Coming to America.’


Amazon has released the official trailer for Coming 2 America. This is the longest look we’ve had at Coming 2 America, which sees Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall reprise numerous original characters originally featured in 1988’s Coming to America. Previous to the release of this new trailer, fans were treated to two different posters teasing the return of Coming to America protagonist Prince Akeem (Murphy) as well as the A-list cast and a teaser trailer.

Coming 2 America, the sequel to Coming to America, teases a similar story to its predecessor with some new twists. The newly-crowned King Akeem is poised to take over as the new ruler of Zamunda when he is alerted to the fact that he has an heir living in New York City. Akeem ropes in his longtime friend and advisor, Semmi (Hall), for a return trip to the Big Apple so the pair can track Akeem’s son down. Akeem and Semmi will be running into plenty of old friends they made during their first trip to New York City more than 30 years ago and will be crossing paths with some new, colorful characters, too.
