I will rank Coming To America in my top 10 favorite movies to watch over and over again. I’ll admit I was a little worried when they announced a sequel but knowing Eddie Murphy is attached I can’t imagine it will be bad (I HOPE).

Here are some of the worst sequels in my opinion:

1) Son of the Mask (2005)

2) Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003)

3) Little Fockers (2010)

The sequel to the Eddie Murphy comedy Coming to America won't be opening in the theaters, but it will still be released.

In a surprise announcement, Murphy's Coming 2 America will now be released via Amazon Studios and is expected to be released on December 18. Now if you want to know what the film is about I can't tell you that, but the deal for the film between Paramount and Amazon Studios is said to be worth $125 million. The film also stars the cast from the first movie along with Jay Pharoah, Tracy Morgan, and more.

Here’s the original trailer just to bring back those memories!
