Yes it’s another Hollywood remake, but anyone who loved Step Brothers or Talladega Nights will be at least a little tempted by the trailer for Holmes and Watson, which reunites Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as the iconic sleuth and his doctor pal.
If this film seems familiar, it’s because the film spoofs the Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes franchise, which most people have forgotten at this point.
The film sees the comical duo tackle killer bees, the obligatory selfie in a medieval setting that will grow old soon, explosions and Queen Victoria. In other words, it’s pretty much exactly what you’d expect from a Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly movie.
Rounding out the cast is Ralph Fiennes as Dr. Moriarty, with Hugh Laurie, Rebecca Hall, Lauren Lapkus, Steve Coogan, and Rob Brydon. Check out the trailer below.
The film looks stupid but hopefully it will be stupid funny.
