Amazon Studios will exclusively release COMING 2 AMERICA globally on Prime Video March 5th, 2021
We may be a St. Louis hot dog institution, but we're also known for our special menu of gourmet burgers named after Eddie Murphy - including the "Prince Akeem" and the "Randy Watson". Steve is a lifelong fan of the actor.
So... when Amazon Studios reached out to us about working together to roll out Eddie Murphy's latest film - Coming 2 America - our entire team was immediately on board.
In celebration of the film's release on Amazon, we are rolling out the red carpet for Zamundan Royalty - and all of our customers too all week in celebration of the March 5th release of Coming 2 America on Amazon Prime.
Stop in March 1st through 7th for:
Special Menu Items to Celebrate Coming 2 America
The Big Mick Burger - "They got the Golden Arches, mine is the Golden Arcs. They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick. We both got two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, and onions, but their buns have sesame seeds."
The King Joffer Dog - King Joffer's attempt at a most American dish - a smoked all-beef hot dog topped with tater tots, cheddar cheese, and bacon.
Sexual Chocolate Cookies - Our friends at Royally Baked baked some INCREDIBLE chocolate-covered cherry cookies just for the occasion. (And they're vegan too - though you'd hardly know!)
Promotions, Giveaways & More!
In addition to our special menu, we will be giving five (5) lucky winners early access passes ahead of the release date on Amazon Prime! (Watch social media for instructions on how to win!)
Want a chance to win? Shoot a short video paying tribute to Coming To America (the original) with your favorite line or scene. Be sure to follow instructions on posting/submitting here to ensure you're eligible to win one of our early access passes or one of many prizes!
Look for specials and discounts on our menu of Eddie Murphy hamburgers.
Stop in the shop to be a part of the action - with the movie playing in shop all week and our crew dressed up in celebration. We may even get a visit from the official Zamundan royal flag as it travels the region to welcome the Royal family.
Coming 2 America is 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. Steve himself will be attending the private world premiere ahead of the release - and couldn't be more excited for the new movie - and the chance to see his idol in action.
This movie has been a long time coming and we're excited to be a part of it in some small way. Thank you to Amazon Studios for reaching out to collaborate. We can't wait!
