The second trailer for Coming 2 America has been posted by Amazon Studios as the sequel to the 1988 comedy hit starring Eddie Murphy premieres on March 5th on Prime Video. This latest preview builds off the first trailer which was released in December. The action is brought first to Queens and then the fictional country of Zamunda, where King Azeem, played by Murphy, faces a potential military coup led by Wesley Snipes’s character, General Izzi. King Azeem and his confidante, Semmi, portrayed by Arsenio Hall, venture back to America to find the king’s long-lost male heir and stopping the takeover in the process.
“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,” Amazon said of the film as quoted by Rolling Stone. What is great about this sequel is that many of the original cast from the Coming to America return along with Murphy, including cast members James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, Vanessa Bell Calloway, John Amos, and Paul Bates. Jermaine Fowler, Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, KiKi Layne, Teyana Taylor, Nomzamo Mbatha, and Bella Murphy also star in the new film. Source: Rolling Stone
