There are many film fans who look back on the eighties as the greatest decade for cinema of them all.

Many iconic efforts emerged from the period, plenty of which are comedies.

A number of the most beloved and nostalgic examples include Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, This is Spinal Tap and Airplane!

The majority of people will also argue it as the golden age of Eddie Murphy movies, with the likes of Beverly Hills Cop, Trading Places and Coming to America gracing screens.

However, fans of the 59-year-old American actor have recently been anticipating the release of Coming 2 America, a sequel to John Landis’ classic 1988 rom-com.
