It’s been decades since the first movie, but there’s no doubt everyone is excited for this sequel. Coming 2 America is available on Amazon Prime Video tonight.

There is everything to look forward to when it comes to Coming 2 Americaand there isn’t long left to wait for it. The movie is a global original, which is excellent news for fans in North America.

The official release time is midnight GMT on Friday, March 5. Because of time differences, there is a strong chance the movie will drop at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Thursday, March 4. If it’s not there right away, you’ll find it by midnight in your local area, but global originals tend to drop earlier than officially stated.

It’s going to be worth the wait if you have to. Let’s just hope that Coming 2 America is just like other originals, though.

Just a side note, the movie was originally going to be released by Paramount Pictures in theaters (it would have eventually come to Amazon). Due to the pandemic, Amazon gained the distribution rights instead to get it to us sooner.

What is Coming 2 America about?

Coming 2 America is the highly anticipated sequel to Coming to America. Eddie Murphy is back as Akeem Joffer, once Prince and now set to become King of Zamunda. When he learns that he has a son back in America, he decides to head back to Queens to meet him.

After all, a king needs an heir. Akeem wants to groom his son as the crown prince, a dying wish of his father’s.

But what happens when you don’t pay child support for decades? What happens when you’re not even a figment of your son’s imagination? They’re questions Akeem will have answered the hard (and in a highly hilarious) way.

Like the original movie, this one has a standout cast, including Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, and Jermaine Fowler. You’re not going to want to miss out.
