Paramount Home Media Distribution is releasing two Eddie Murphy comedy classics, Trading Places and Coming to America, for their anniversaries on Blu-ray and digital June 12.
Prebook is May 1.
Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Trading Places pairs Murphy with Dan Aykroyd in director John Landis’ social satire about a con artist who switches roles with a stock market executive as part of an idle bet between two rich brothers. The Blu-ray includes multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes, as well as access to a digital copy.
In Coming to America, which celebrates its 30th anniversary, Murphy reteams with Landis to play a pampered African prince who disguises his identity to roam the United States in search of a bride. The film also stars Arsenio Hall and James Earl Jones and features a variety of cameos, including Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy from Trading Places. The Blu-ray includes vintage interviews with the cast, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a photo gallery and access to a digital copy.
