Coming 2 America is available now.

Prime Video

Coming 2 America is finally here, and despite doing that weird thing where you put a literal number inside the title, we're quite looking forward to it. Coming to America came out in 1988, so it's been ... 33 years since the original comedy hit theaters? It's a testament to the film's success and cultural impact that anyone is interested in a sequel. Is it any good? Our reviewer Patrick Holland mostly liked it

The plot? Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) discovers he has a son in the US and must return to New York City, find his child and groom him to become the heir to the throne of Zamunda. Hijinks, we can only assume, will ensue.

Here's a trailer...

OK, let's get stuck into the details.

Release date

Coming 2 America hit Prime Video on March 5. 

How to watch

Coming 2 America is available to watch on Prime Video. Unlike other movies like Mulan or Raya and the Last Dragon, Coming 2 America will be free to watch for Prime Video subscribers.
