March is Women’s History Month, and Amazon Prime Video is celebrating with a hub highlighting the voices of women actors, producers, writers, and filmmakers. That includes series like the streaming service’s original hit The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, acquired films like Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, and more.
There are also a few major original films and series headed to the streaming service: In addition to the adult animated superhero series Invincible, from The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and featuring the voice of Steven Yeun, Prime will also welcome Spanish romantic drama La Templanaza (The Vineyard) and Australian Football League docuseries Making their Mark, plus the highly anticipated sequel film Coming 2 America.
Starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, Coming 2 America sees the men reprise their roles from 1988 film Coming to America as now-King Akeem and his trusted confidant Semmi, who once again travel from Zamunda to New York for a new (and of course hilarious) adventure.
