It’s strange that a trailer doesn’t give away massive plot developments these days. The trailer for Coming 2 America doesn’t really give away anything besides the basic plot of the sequel. King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and Semmi (Arsenio Hall) have to return to America to find Akeem’s rightful heir to the throne. Their quest brings them back to Queens, New York to find Akeem’s long-lost son.
It’s that simple and other than an extended sequence with multiple parts played by Eddie and Arsenio, we aren’t given much else. Personally, I’d prefer trailers to be like this. It means all the important revelations and scenes are saved for the actual movie. With something like Coming 2 America, I’m already in to see the movie anyway. Getting Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall back together on our screens is reason enough to watch the movie.
Coming 2 America stars: Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, KiKi Layne, Shari Headley. It also features Wesley Snipes and James Earl Jones. The film comes out on Amazon Prime Video exclusively on March 5th, 2021.
So, what do you think of Coming 2 America? Are you excited for the sequel?
