This an original one sheet movie poster for the 80s comedy classic – Coming to America. Few movies capture the comic genius of Eddie Murphy better than ‘Coming to America’. Murphy plays 4 different characters in the movie including the lead role of prince Akeem Joffer. Prince Joffer, the crown prince of a fictional African nation, travels to America in the hope of finding his princess. The streets of Queens in New York City are a far Cry from the life the prince previously led. This of course is the basis for much of the comedy in the movie.
This is an original poster from the first release of the movie in the US. The artwork by Drew Struzan shows Murphy in giant form standing on a red carpet rolled down Park Avenue in Manhattan. This is the classic image for the movie which will be very familiar to anyone that was alive in the 80s. The poster is in fine folded condition.
