Coming 2 America’s latest trailer premiered during the AFC Championship game. Fans of the original film with Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall have been eagerly anticipating the release of the movie since the announcement of a sequel. They got their first look at Prince Akeep and Semmi late last year and the excitement hasn’t subsided since that moment. A bunch of the characters will return alongside Murphy in a movie that is sure to draw quite a crowd despite the decades since the first one. Amazon is handling the release and banking on all that sweet nostalgia. It’s become par for the course in marketing these franchises that take life again after years off to pump up the return of actors like the celebrated comedian. March 5th will be here before you know it, and everyone will be elbowing their way for a spot on the couch in the meantime. Check it out down below:
