Amazon’s streaming service Prime Video has a pretty solid March in store for viewers. While , the sequel to the hit 1988 comedy Coming to America, is something of the centerpiece for the month’s new content, there also lots of great programming in store for fans of those kinds of classic ’80s comedies.
First off, Coming 2 America is landing on Prime Video on March 3. The film, having been delayed from a theatrical release in December, has been a long time coming for fans of the original. Helmed by Craig Brewer, who previously directed Eddie Murphy in 2019’s acclaimed Dolomite is My Name, the director said in a recent interview that while the film is a comedy it’s also pretty grounded: “What I hope people will like when they see Coming 2 America is that it’s 30 years after that fairytale ended… We saw a young couple come together in a fairytale. Well, now they’re parents. Now they’re dealing with what happens when you’re 30 years later. The same thing that’s happening in the audience is happening on the screen.”
