This one goes period and parody, as you would hope and expect from Ferrell and Reilly and the script by Etan Cohen (back directing Ferrell after Get Hard, and who also penned the upcoming Men In Black 3). The "Step Brothers" and "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" co-stars are at it again in "Holmes and Watson", which deductive reasoners will quickly identify as a new take on the Sherlock Holmes mythos; Ferrell plays the detective, with Reilly as his trusted sidekick. The movie stars Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Rebecca Hall, Ralph Fiennes, Rob Brydon, Kelly Macdonald, Lauren Lapkus, and Hugh Laurie in pivotal roles.
Holmes & Watson will bumble into United Kingdom cinemas on 26 December.
