Despite debuting exclusively on Prime Video, Eddie Murphy’s comedy sequel, Coming 2 America, is finally getting a physical blu-ray release!
I’m a big proponent of physical media for movies (and games). Even in the age of streaming and multiple streaming exclusive films, I’m always eager to see if those flicks will get some sort of physical release. Thankfully, Amazon and Paramount are doing so for Coming 2 America. Exactly one month from today, March 8th, the film will be available on Blu-Ray!
Akeem and Semmi are back for a brand-new, hilarious adventure! In COMING 2 AMERICA, newly crowned King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) traverse the globe from their great African nation of Zamunda to the borough of Queens, New York when Akeem learns he has a long-lost son in the United States. In addition to Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, the outrageously entertaining film features an incredible cast including James Earl Jones, John Amos, Louie Anderson, Shari Headley, Wesley Snipes, Tracy Morgan, and Leslie Jones.
The COMING 2 AMERICA Blu-ray includes commentary by director Craig Brewer (Dolemite Is My Name, “Empire”) and an exclusive featurette entitled “From Queens to Zamunda,” which includes never-before-seen footage and interviews.
It’s about as spartan a blu-ray release as you can get, but it still gives people the option to actually own the movie and watch it however they please. Will you be picking up Coming 2 America on March 8th?
