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.

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.

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.

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.
