Coming Soon Trailers: Holmes and Watson, Vice.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly team up for a third comedic outing, competing against the political satire Vice.

"<yoastmarkThe final week of 2018 offers some counter-programming for folks looking to avoid the big franchises that dominated Christmas weekend.  Will Farrell and John C. Reilly reunite for a comedy a decade after their last pairing, Step Brothers.  Can they breath some fresh air into the Sherlock Holmes mythos, which has gone quiet after a spate of successful adaptations in the early 2000’s?  In the way of competition, they’ll be up against a dark comedy/political polemic from Oscar nominated director Adam McKay (The Big Short.)  Vice already has a ton of Oscar buzz, and a ton of controversy like McKay’s last big project.

Additionally,  in limited release we get our second film of 2018 about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, this time a drama starring Felicity Jones.  The home market offers little distraction as just one new film, a horror/thriller police procedural, makes its way to the Video on Demand services.
