Getting an Amazon Prime release sequel movie Coming 2 America is given a 12 rating in the UK by the BBFC. 12 Age Rating

The sequel to 1988's Coming To America was originally scheduled for a December 2020 release in theatres by Paramount but due to the global pandemic was delayed.

The movie was purchased by Amazon and is skipping the still closed cinemas all together and going direct to Amazon Prime streaming.

The movie stars Eddie Murphy and John Amos and follows the 2 back to America as they go in search of Prince Akeem's unknown son.

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.

Synopsis of the movie

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.

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!
