Netflix has finally given us our first look at one of 2024’s most hotly anticipated sequels. The streamer has released the first trailer for Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F which sees the legendary Eddie Murphy return to the role he originated back in 1984.
Detective Axel Foley (Murphy) is back on the beat in Beverly Hills. After his daughter’s life is threatened, she (Taylour Paige) and Foley team up with a new partner (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and old pals Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) and John Taggart (John Ashton) to turn up the heat and uncover a conspiracy.
Watch the teaser trailer in the player below:
Franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer says of Murphy’s return “Eddie’s such an incredible artist. He can do drama, he can do comedy – he can do anything. And he’s the same Axel Foley. He’s still on the streets. He’s still doing what he does. Obviously with age you get wiser. But he still has the twinkle in his eye.”
Based on a story by Will Beall, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F is directed by Mark Molloy from a screenplay by Beall, Tom Gormican & Kevin Etten. The film stars Eddie Murphy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Taylour Paige, Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Paul Reiser, Bronson Pinchot and Kevin Bacon.
