Celebrating its 35th anniversary, TRADING PLACES pairs Murphy with Dan Aykroyd in director John Landis’ sidesplitting social satire. A small-time con artist switches roles with a big-time stock market maven as part of an idle bet between two mega-rich brothers. But when the truth comes out, the consequences are pure comedy gold. 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 in 2018, Murphy reteamed with director John Landis to play a pampered African prince who disguises his identity to roam the U.S. in search of a bride.

The Blu-ray includes vintage interviews with the cast, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a photo gallery, and access to a digital copy.

Trading Places (1983) BLU RAY REVIEW + Unboxing
What happens when you combine the comic genius of Eddie Murphy (Norbit, Dreamgirls) with Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters, Christmas With The Kranks) and director John Landis (Animal House, Coming To America)? You get a timeless comedy classic laced with sidesplitting, satiric humor. Murphy stars as a small time con artist who gets a chance to switch lives with Aykroyd's big time stock market maven. But their reversal of fortunes is just a cruel joke perpetrated by two bored mega rich brothers (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) as part of an idle bet. And when the truth comes out... the consequences are sheer comedy gold!
