For my 35 and over crew who remembers the ORIGINAL “Coming To Ameria,” I gotta know your thoughts on the new one. The trailer has been released and “Coming 2 America” is coming to us soon. Are you feeling the storyline as it is presented in this sequel?
Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, newly-crowned King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that has them traversing the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens, New York – where it all began. We remember where it all began….. LoL!
