‘Coming 2 America’ Is Amazon’s 1st Project To Lead Streaming Rankings, 1.41 Billion Minutes Were Watched In The 1st Week

Coming 2 America might have received mixed reactions, but the numbers are talking in its favor.

It is now Amazon’s first-ever project to top streaming rankings, according to a new report from Nielsen.

The sequel, which premiered on March 5th, topped streaming rankings for the week of March 1 – March 7 thanks to 1.41 billion minutes of viewing time.





The film sold to Amazon for $125 million after not being released in theaters due to COVID-19.





In February, star Arsenio Hall said he and Eddie Murphy once vowed to never do a sequel to the cult classic.

“It took 30 years because we never planned on doing it. In fact, we shook and said, ‘Let’s never do a sequel.’ We were so happy with it. It was perfect, we’re never going to mess with it.”





He added that the pair decided to revisit their pact because of the love and support they still receive from the fans of their movie. Arsenio Hall said that even though the original film came out more than three decades ago, he kept coming across Coming to America-themed events on social media that he’d share with Eddie Murphy. Ultimately, the two decided to jump in for Coming 2 America.
