Eddie Murphy co-stars with Dan Aykroyd in this classic comedy film.
Showing as part of BFI’s Comedy Genius season Trading Places is one of Eddie Murphy’s most celebrated films.
The story goes – upper-crust executive Louis Winthorpe III (Dan Aykroyd) and down-and-out hustler Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy) are the subjects of a bet by successful brokers Mortimer (Don Ameche) and Randolph Duke (Ralph Bellamy). An employee of the Dukes, Winthorpe is framed by the brothers for a crime he didn’t commit, with the siblings then installing the street-smart Valentine in his position. When Winthorpe and Valentine uncover the scheme, they set out to turn the tables on the Dukes.
The British Blacklist has teamed up with the BFI to offer a 2-4-1 offer to watch Trading Places.
