Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly take on the roles of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson in the upcoming new comedy Holmes and Watson. We’ve got the first trailer to share with you today that features the two characters embarking on a mission to solve a case within four day or the Queen will be killed.
As you’d imagine from Ferrell and Reilly, the movie is filled with all kinds of funny and chaotic antics. I especially enjoyed watching Watson trying to shoot at a swarm of bees attacking him.
The movie looks absolutely silly, but it’s supposed to be! The goofiness of these two actors is the whole point! I’ve enjoyed the films that these two guys have made together and I’ll definitely be checking this one out. It may not be for everyone, but it looks like it will give audiences a laugh.
Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder, Get Hard) is directing the film and the rest of the cast includes Lauren Lapkus (Jurassic World), Rob Bryden (The Trip), Hugh Laurie (Tomorrowland), Rebecca Hall (The Prestige), Kelly Macdonald (No Country for Old Men), Ralph Fiennes (Skyfall), and Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place).
The film will be released in theaters on December 21, 2018.
