Even the greatest detective of all time struggles a bit with a selfie. The latest clip from the upcoming comedy Holmes & Watson shows the titular mystery-solving duo (Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly) requesting a picture with Queen Victoria (Pam Ferris), and possibly inventing the selfie long before the word entered today’s lexicon.

It’s hard to craft a Christmas movie that becomes a holiday hit that you want to watch every single year. Most Christmas movies you just watch simply because they happen to be on around the Yuletide season, but every once in a while there’s a true classic that stands the test of time.
Perhaps the only true modern Christmas classic is Elf from 2003, and it’s so delightful that not even Honest Trailers can bring themselves to say anything really bad about it. But they certainly have fun diving into how damn weird this story is. Get in the holiday spirit by watching the Elf Honest Trailer below. Read More »
Will Ferrell arguably hasn’t given a dramatic performance since 2010’s Everything Must Go, but he may be about to diverge from his comedy roots again in a new movie.
Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting) is set to direct Ferrell in The Prince of Fashion for Amazon Studios, a drama based on a magazine article from award-winning writer Michael Chabon about the time he took his 13-year-old son to Men’s Fashion Week in Paris, and “and all I got was a profound understanding of who he is, what he wants to do with his life, and how it feels to watch a grown man stride down a runway wearing shaggy yellow Muppet pants.” Read More »

Hollywood remakes of great foreign films have been common for ages and will always exist as long as most audiences avoid subtitles like the plague. So director Ruben Östlund’s Force Majeure getting remade with an all-star cast of comedic talent isn’t surprising. All I can say is “Good luck remaking one of the darkest and most singular comedies of the past 20 years or so.”

Holmes and Watson finds Ferrell and Reilly playing Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson in a comedic take on the literary pair created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Next month, you can see John C. Reilly alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the western thriller The Sisters Brothers. But there’s a different pair of brothers that fans would like to see back on the big screen.
Step Brothers, starring John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell as forty-something step brothers still living at home with their recently married parents, became a comedy hit back in 2008 with just over $100 million at the box office, but it’s found even greater life in the years since. You can’t go anywhere without hearing quotes from the movie, whether it’s “Did we just become best friends?” or “It’s the fuckin’ Catalina Wine Mixer.” And because of that, fans have wanted a sequel.
John C. Reilly isn’t quite as enthusiastic as viewers when it comes to sequels in general, but he still hopes that he doesn’t age out of the chance to make it happen with his buddy Will Ferrell and the increasingly eclectic director Adam McKay. Read More »
