The original Beverly Hills Cop was released in 1984 and starred Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, a Detroit cop who visits Beverly Hills, California to solve the murder of his best friend. The film was a huge hit, earning more than $300 million at the box office and even earning an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. The film also spawned two sequels, which were released in 1987 and 1994, but neither received the praise or box office success of the original.
