‘Coming 2 America’ gets early release on Amazon Prime
Amazon Studios has a “why wait?” streaming policy (see The boys final season, The extent, Jack ryan and a few others), so it’s not too shocking that one of its most high-profile versions was released a day earlier. Coming 2 America, a sequel to the 1988 comedy film, again stars Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall as they travel from the fictional land of Zamunda to the United States on an adventure.
While it was originally intended to be shown on the big screen by Paramount Pictures, Amazon acquired the global rights late last year as the pandemic forced theaters to close (and, coincidentally, released it the same day Paramount + has started broadcasting). Now that he’s already playing, you can watch him early and have time for the season finale of WandaVision at 3 a.m. ET, and maybe come back for the watch party scheduled for Friday night.
