No, thank you.
Eddie Murphy defended Cosby. I sure hope that a scene of his character being molested by a guy in a sweater going "zibbidy bop bop" doesn't make it into the film.
Please don't. The Trading Places brothers are dead. We all laughed at Sexual Chocolate and Soul Glo (the sax alone from the commercial is comedic gold), but people are too exceptional to accept a proper sequel.
Can no one in Hollywood come up with an original idea for a movie anymore? Seems like it's everyday now we're getting a sequel or remake no one asked for. Just making the same thing for a quick buck
That's all Hollywood is. It's only by accident that a little art makes it through sometimes.
Oh for fucks sake.
Moar like Coming to Agenda.
Here’s his contributions to television and movies... it’s aboit what you’d expect.
I feel like I remember the movie being funny, but not funny in the same way things are today. What’s that word...for when something “was”funny but now it’s inappropriate to laugh...
Oh yeah “problematic.”
So what’s Kenya Barris’ most recent contribution to non-problematic media?
If there should have been a sequel to the movie, it should have happened at the latest in the early 90’s. Making a sequel fo a medium past a certain time limit with different staff and directors and the like is a surefire way to make it either mediocre at best or outright shit, because the original idea that made it good is either separated by a long period of time and/or by people not interpreting what the OG director of the series wanted to do with it (who usually know what they are doing better than the new fucks at the helm). The only exception to this OTTOMH is DOOM 2016, which respected the source material while doing its own thing. Duke Nukem, Star Wars, Ghostbusters and Jurassic Park however were marred by change and that’s unfortunately the norm. It kinda gives me an appreciation for series that died off too early like Perfect Dark , Advance Wars and Ogre Battle for pettering out at their peak before they became shit and series that manage to be consistently good like Ace Combat or Civilization since the devs know that they have a good series and should put in the time to make a high quality product that keeps what’s good about the previous entries while doing its own thing, something Hollywood can’t seem to do. (Tl;DR: It’s been 30 years. Why release another “Coming to America” now when practically everyone associated with it has moved on to other things? Btw, sorry for the rant. This shit just irks me so much)
Also directed by another totally useless hack, Craig Brewer.
This is movie DOA.
They should have had Max Landis direct it. Better yet scrap the project then divert all funds to new season of Dirk Gently.
Since the script that Kenya Barris rewrote was one written by the original screenwriters, neither of which has worked in 15 years, it might be that this sequel was originally planned for production decades ago. It'll be amusing to see how a BET-grade writer updates the script.
When I saw the thread my first thought was "Okay, it's going to be a father son kind of thing and a sort of passing of the torch movie (because this needs to be a franchise 30 years after the fact) where the son is the focus of the movie." And I was sadly right.
Not that you mentioned Trading Places:
A sequel/shared universe/crossover with Trading Places would've been something
I hope it's woke af.
And that son's name was T'Challa.
Coming to America 2 is the Black Panther prequel we never knew we wanted.
I bet Coming to America 2 ends with either a communist takeover of Zamunda, or it gets over thrown and turned into a shit hole like Zimbabwe.
And a subplot of China expanding it's Belt and Road initiative, and Taiwan trying to seek an alliance with Zamunda to counter China, and some Canadian diplomats and spies get caught in the mix.
Where’s the audience appetite for this? The Ghostbusters remake and Blade Runner 2049 both flopped. Coming to America is a movie with nothing like the level of recognition those franchises have. No one was clamoring for a Coming to America sequel, much less 30 years later .
I didn't even know there was a Coming To America 1. Were people begging for this 30 year old movie to get a sequel? Did they just come up with this via throwing darts at a dartboard? You might be tired of stuff like Ghostbusters, Star Wars, and Marvel, but at least they're relevant. They're cemented in pop culture. Why make a sequel to some random Eddy Murphy movie?
Edit: Tragi-Chan wrote almost the exact same comment as me.
At least they didn't make any sequels to Norbit:
