‘Coming To America’ sequel to be premiered in December


The highly anticipated sequel of ‘Coming To America’ which has been acquired by Amazon Studios has been slated to premiere in December 18.

Eddie Murphy’s movie is said to have been acquired for $125 million as the latest acquisition of Amazon studios.

According to an exclusive report by Variety, the former Paramount Pictures movie will begin streaming on Amazon Prime in December 18.

The deal between Paramount and Amazon comes in the wake of the continued closure of theatres due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other anticipated productions still pushing back theatrical release dates.

The sequel which is directed by Craig Brewer will center on prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) returning to America where he discovers he has a long-lost son. The first ‘Coming To America’, was about the story of Akeem, a charming African prince who traveled to America to get away from an arranged marriage. The classic grossed about $300 million in box-office.
