Paramont really needs to do an Eddie Murphey Boxset

I really wish Paramont would make an Eddie Murphey Boxset with anamorphic special editions of both 48 hours films, Coming to America, Golden Child and it'd be nice to have some bonus features on Trading Places. Any chance of this happening anytime soon?

Apparently they are going to make a Beverly Hills Cop 4, so I'd imagine that we could eventually see this come to light eventually from Paramount. Coming To America imo is one of the best comedy ever, it deserves a SE on it's own! Eddie Murphy may even get a supporting actor Oscar nod for his role in Dreamgirls. Things could get interesting in 07-08 if your a Murphy fan.

I'm surprised the folks over at Paramount have scrounged around and haven't found the footage that got 'cut' from Raw - apparently the MPAA deemed the film X-rated (for language - !!) three times til a whole bunch of scenes were removed and found 'R-rating' acceptable.

Yeah this is long overdue. We need Special Collector's Editions (with newly rendered anamorphic transfers down-converted from HD) of 48 Hrs., Trading Places, and Coming to America. Also just a release period of Delirious. An uncut Raw and new SE's for The Golden Child, Another 48 Hrs., Boomerang, Harlem Nights and Vampire in Brooklyn would just be icing on the cake. Oh yeah, and for God's sake, get some decent coverart on the Trading Places DVD. The current cover is a complete disgrace and ranks as one of the worst I've seen from a major studio. Here's hoping this happens sooner than later.

It would be the pre-'I was just giving her/him a ride' Eddie.

Coming to America needs a special edition. That's our traditional christmas film. As soon as it hit's 12:00 am on christmas morning, my wife and I turn that on and open our gifts to eachother. Been doing that for like 8 years now.

I'd like that. And before a box set, how about they release Delirious?!?! Oh - I see it is finally being released on 2/6. Good news!

Aside from the regular issues about his movies being from different studios, there's already been an Eddie Murphy boxed set. It was called "The Eddie Murphy Collection", and it contained BHC, T.P. and 48 Hrs. Only three films, but three of his best. There was also of course "The Complete Line-up" which contained all three BHC films. Until he does something else that's noteworthy (like BHC4 as was mentioned earlier), I doubt there will be any more Eddie boxed sets.

Oh yeah, I forgot. There was also another "Eddie Murphy Collection" that contained The Nutty Professor, TNP2, Bowfinger, and Life.

Bowfinger is a comedy classic IMO, Holy Man was harmless fun, Metro is often compared to BHC, but that's not fair as it's a solid action vehicle with a great performance from Murphy and I loved the cat & mouse relationship between Murphy and Wincott which was predictable yet effective. Vampire In Brooklyn was ok as well, nothing that bad about those films and they always seem to get picked on.

Oh BTW, Pluto Nash deserves to get picked on, except for a few scenes that work (it's a Murphy movie and he always shines) alot of the material never lives up to it's intentions, it falls flat. Not the worst movie ever, but it could have been so much better.

John Cleese in Pluto Nash was a nice surprise, although the material he was given was of course dreadful. That was about the only part of the movie I enjoyed, although the reveal of the villain was interesting.

Wow! I am so all over those if they are released on region 1 DVD! Trading Places and Coming To America are great movies! As for that Eddie box, maybe.
