About 'Coming 2 America'

Years after Prince Akeem Joffer (Eddie Murphy) came to America to "sow his royal seeds" he is set to become King of Zamunda, he then discovers he has a son he never knew about in America - a street savvy Queens native named Lavelle (Jermaine Fowler).

Honoring his royal father's (James Earl Jones) dying wish to groom this son as the crown prince, Akeem and Semmi (Arsenio Hall) set off to America once again.

After Amazon Prime released the first poster for the Eddie Murphy starring Coming 2 America yesterday, today they release the first trailer.

The trailer is almost exactly what you would expect from a sequel to 1988's Coming To America with a story that has Prince Akeem going back to America in search of his son which he did not know he had.

The movie got sold to Amazon Prime this year and will no longer get a theatrical release, instead being released on the streaming service on March 5th 2021.

A new poster has been released for upcoming movie Coming 2 America which can seen in full below.

The movie is directed by Craig Brewer and has a cast including the likes of Eddie Murphy and James Earl Jones, while the release date of the film is 5th March 2021 and is coming to Prime Video after it was sold by Paramount earlier this year.

Due to restriction enforcement in England set by the Government due to large increases in COVID-19 cases cinemas in the UK will be closing their doors for the second time in 2020 from November 5th.

The restrictions, at the moment, are to be set in place until 2nd December, but there is every possibility that when it comes to public places like shops, bars and yes cinemas, it will take a bit longer to open up.

This means that there will likely be no box office to report in the coming weeks, and the reopening which could take a couple of weeks, will be slow with very few blockbuster film released.

Which films is this going to effect? It has been mainly small indie film which have enjoyed the exposure over the last couple of months, and in the coming week there were no sizeable film scheduled.

Free Guy

Ryan Reynolds next movie Free Guy is coming on 11th December, things may have re-opened by a week by then but this could be sent to 2021, also there is every possibility that it could see a digital release

On the 18th of December there is Death On The Nile from Kenneth Branagh, which may see a schedule change and just as easily it could go direct to streaming.

Coming 2 America has been sold to Amazon Prime and will make its debut on that platform around the same time frame.

Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman 1984 is the next big blockbuster due for release and there is every possibility that this will be pushed to spring 2021 , altohugh if this happens then there will be another round of schedule changes as we have Raya And The Last Dragon, Morbius and the much delayed No Time To Die all set around to debut around Spring.

Its yet another blow for the cinema industry and with many major companies already struggling how many closures can cinemas handle before going down.

Streaming is not the way most people want to see big blockbusters, but we also want to feel safe when we go out to enjoy a new movie, time will tell but lets hope this closure controls the virus and cinemas make the necessary safety measures so we can enjoy what could be a blockbuster packed 2021.

As the blockbuster movies from 2020 slowly get delayed until 2021 the latest to move in unsurprisingly Denis Villeneuve's Dune adaptation will will now see a release on October 1st 2021.

This is, at the moment, the same release date as The Batman starring Robert Pattinson and directed by Matt Reeves, so I suspect that might be on the move as well as its currently still in production and has been hit with CODIV-19 while filming which has caused delays.

This only leaves Death On The Nile and Wonder Woman 1984, and maybe Free Guy which got a new trailer today, left as movies to come out in 2020 that can be considered major blockbusters (Coming 2 America surely isn't ready yet!).

Dune rescheduled

Last week the latest Bond movie No Time To Die got moved to April 2021 leaving the release schedule rather empty.

As I have written about today this is very worrying for the cinema industry that has started to, for the second time this year, shut down, this time not just because of COVID-19, through lack of films being shown.

2021 is shaping up to be one of the biggest ever year for blockbusters and at the moment we have not only some of the biggest films of 2020 now next year but all the films that should have come out in 2021!

When Universal delayed the release of the next Bond movie No Time To Die from November 2020 to April 2021 it seems it has had a devastating effect on cinema chains in the UK and US.

Today one of the worlds biggest cinema chains Cinema has announced they will close cinemas in the UK and US from Thursday 8th October until further notice and ODEON cinemas in the UK have announced they will only open at the weekend.

No Time To Die

The root of this is the change in release date of No Time To Die which was to be the next blockbuster after the COVID-19 reopening to try and get people back into the habit of going to the movies.

Tenet which was released in late August has now been seen as a test bed for the publics tolerance for going back to cinemas, a public place where social distancing is a challenge, and with the figures coming off the movie it seems it failed the test, the movie has taken so far £25 million in the UK, $40 Million in the US and just over $300 Million globally.

If there is a positive side to this its that a number of smaller independent movies that would normally have been overshadowed by the big blockbusters are being given a chance to shine, and doing better than they would normally, After We Collided being a prime example.

Wonder Woman 1984

The next 'big' movie to be released is Death On The Nile and Dune, both on December 18th 2020 (thats got to change), also due that day is Coming 2 America starring Eddie Murphy but with no poster, trailer or publicity thats not going to happen!

Then there is Wonder Woman 1984 coming out over Christmas which is massive, and unlike Tenet will do well in cinemas if its given the chance.
