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.
