Eddie Murphy’s Coming 2 America Images Show Off The Killer Cast

Of all the sequels that we have received in the last few years that have come out years, or decades, after the original film, it’s possible none was more unexpected, or more welcome than Coming 2 America. While forgiving the sequels slightly cheesy title, Coming to America is one of Eddie Murphy most loved comedies and so the idea of seeing him, along with the remarkable cast from the first movie, again, is a very welcome idea. While we still have to wait a few more months to see the film itself, a collection of images have been released showing us the characters from the movie for the first time. 

In the image above we see the duo of Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, in their roles as Akeem and Semmi, together again. And honestly, it doesn’t look like 32 years have passed at all. They look sort of amazing. Older, sure, but not that much older. But Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are but only two of the actors who will be returning for the sequel. Most of the major cast members from the first movie will be back in some capacity, including James Earl Jones, as Akeem’s father the king of Zamunda.

The Star Wars franchise is one of the most beloved in film history, with entire generations of moviegoers brought up on the galaxy far, far away.

How Warner Bros. Plans For HBO Max Will Affect The Actors’ Payday

While the movie business is, at its core, about making art, it is also a business, and it’s where the art and the business collide that we’re finding one of the biggest issues with this plan. Many of the deals that Warner Bros. has with its major talent, like lead actors and directors, as well as the various guilds that represent the people behind the scenes, have financial plans that are structured around box office results.
