Holmes and Watson Trailer Starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly

Although Guy Ritchie has spent the last few years trying (unsuccessfully) to launch new franchises with The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, many fans are lamenting the fact that he didn’t spend that time on a Sherlock Holmes 3 instead. Now it appears that someone else has beaten him to the punch as there is a new Sherlock Holmes movie coming to theatres this Christmas. Of course, there is one major difference: this one is a comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. Adam McKay is not involved unfortunately, instead we have to settle for Etan Cohen (Get Hard) writing and directing. But with a supporting cast that includes Ralph Fiennes, Rebecca Hall, Kelly Macdonald, Hugh Laurie, Lauren Lapkus and Rob Brydon, I’m more than willing to give this a chance. Holmes and Watson hits theatres on Dec. 21st; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Not sure about this one, but these two are a winning combo, so I’ll try it.

  • Lisa V Benson

    Could be part of my holiday movie list.
