New visuals from this forthcoming Coming 2 America by Amazon reveals its initial look at Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall’s returns. This 1988 romantic comedy Coming to America, starred Murphy as Akeem, the royal prince of the fictional African nation of Zamunda. However, when it comes the time for Akeem to marry, then he ventures to America with his close friend Semmi (Hall) to then find the perfect woman for himself. At the time of its release, Coming to America was a box office smash then and remained one of Murphy’s most beloved projects. Hence, as Murphy reinvents his career in a hefty way, it’s no surprise that he will be revisiting it.
In 2019, it was previously confirmed that Murphy would be returning for Coming 2 America; the long-awaited sequel has now been in the news after the first film. However, Coming 2, America will find Akeem, thereby preparing to take the throne of Zamunda. Still, all his plans are now thrown into disarray when he learned that he fathered a son (Jermaine Fowler) with an American woman (Leslie Jones). Certainly, at one point, Coming 2 America was already scheduled for a theatrical release in late December 2020. Still, now as the coronavirus pandemic has complicated some of the major movie premieres, it eventually shifted to Amazon Prime. So, the audience will eventually get to see Coming to America in March 2021.
Coming to America 2: Release Date
Most importantly, as Coming 2 America‘s first time December release dawns on Friday, has revealed Murphy and Hall’s initial look in the movie. The first shot reveals that Akeem and Semmi now returning to a neighborhood barbershop, while its second is just of Akeem being proudly displaying his overall affection for the New York City in a rather familiar costume. Gratefully, both the actors look like they have already slipped back into their characters with ease.
Certainly, others who are returning for Coming 2 America include Shari Headley, Louie Anderson, John Amos, Paul Bates, and James Earl, Jones. Its fans will now have to wait a bit longer for it to see their huge returns, but it’s somehow fitting that the initial look at Coming 2 America puts all the spotlight on Murphy and Hall. Now, both the actors will once again play the multiple characters in its sequel, with Murphy potentially even playing the villain. Presumably, all the different characters now will be shown in the still-unreleased trailer of it.

As Coming 2 America is already scheduled for its early release in March 2021, the movie’s initial trailer could be released any day now. However, in fact, the arrival of these first two pictures suggests that it will debut soon.
