“What is that, velvet?” We all know the one-liners from the original 1988 classic film, Coming To America. The star, Eddie Murphy, is back to reprise his role as Price Akeem, but now as King Akeem the ruler of the African nation of Zamunda. With all the follies and funnies of the first movie, Coming 2 America looks to do the same with the release of the newest trailer by distribution platform, Amazon Prime Video.
The good people of the production like, Kenya Barris (Black-ish) on screenplay/executive producer, costume designer Ruth E. Carter (Black Panther) and director Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow), with many more, all brought into the idea of the film’s premise which Amazon Prime Video explains as such:
“Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, newly-crowned King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) 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.”
