Coming 2 America, the long-awaited sequel to the 80's Eddie Murphy classic, will come to Blu-ray on March 8th. Amazon paid a ton of money for the rights to the film, which debuted on Prime Video last year and became their most-watched film. The disc release will be pretty bare-bones, though there will be a feature-length commentary with director Craig Brewer and a featurette with new interviews and such. But where are the bloopers? No deleted scenes? Not even a trailer? Come on, guys, no matter how bare-bones these discs have become, we at least get a trailer! Anyway, below you can see the cover and special features list, though spoiler: it is not much.

I still have not sat down and watched this, but it is smart of Paramount to release it this way. My parents are the target audience for sure, they have no idea how to stream anything, but they can put a disc in.
