“His methods are ingenious. He’s a master of disguise. And his mind is brilliant.” Sony Pictures has finally debuted the first trailer for the comedy titled Holmes & Watson, reuniting the original “Step Brothers” – Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly – in a new comedy from another time. Ferrell plays Sherlock Holmes, and Reilly plays Dr. Watson. We can definitely say you’ve never seen a Sherlock Holmes movie like this before. It looks as ridiculous as it sounds, especially with these two making a mess of, well, everything. The full cast includes Kelly Macdonald, Rebecca Hall, Lauren Lapkus, Noah Jupe, Hugh Laurie as Mycroft, Pam Ferris, Bella Ramsey, Rob Brydon, Kieran O’Brien, Bronson Webb, and Jordan Long; with Ralph Fiennes as Moriarty. This looks totally kooky and absurd, and a bit too dumb for my tastes. Enjoy.

“I just think the three of us should go for a ride.” Following two great teasers, Roadside Attractions has debuted the full-length official red band trailer for the holiday-themed, political comedy titled The Oath, the feature directorial debut of actor-writer-comedian Ike Barinholtz. Barinholtz also stars as Chris, who’s married to a woman named Kai, played by Tiffany Haddish. The film is set around Thanksgiving time and is about a controversial White House “Oath” that turns family member against family member. Described as a “savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism.” Bring it on and all the savagery. The cast includes Billy Magnussen, John Cho, Meredith Hagner, Carrie Brownstein, Nora Dunn, Jon Barinholtz, Chris Ellis, and Priah Ferguson. I really enjoy how this trailer starts out with all the madness, and then plays back through everything. Can’t wait to see this movie. Here’s the official red band trailer (+ new poster) for Ike Barinholtz’s …

“Can’t be unseen.” STX has dropped another wild & crazy red band trailer for The Happytime Murders, an R-rated puppet murder mystery neo-noir movie. The first red band trailer was totally insane and filled with lewd and demented footage, this one doesn’t have as much footage but still packs a punch (to the gut). Directed by Jim Henson’s son Brian Henson, the film is basically like Who Framed Roger Rabbit but with puppets and even more lewd humor. The full cast mixing live-action actors with puppets includes Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, Jimmy O. Yang, Leslie David Baker, Ryan Gaul, and Elizabeth Banks. I actually really like that they’re embracing the absurdity of this whole wacky concept by including all the tweets in this trailer, even if it does look totally WTF insane. Bring on the raunchy puppets. Here’s the second red band trailer (+ poster) for Brian Henson’s The Happytime Murders, on YouTube: You can still watch the first red …

“Oh no… I think I cut myself!” Netflix has released another official trailer for their comedy The Package, which is now available, the latest film from Funny or Die filmmaker Jake Szymanski (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates). The wacky, stupid comedy is about a group of teenage friends who go on a spring break camping trip, but an accident causes them to change their plans in hopes of saving their friend. Yeah, it’s dumb and made for teenagers to get drunk and laugh at. The full cast for this includes Daniel Doheny, Geraldine Viswanathan, Sadie Calvano, Luke Spencer Roberts, Eduardo Franco, Michael Eklund, Gary Jones, Alexander Calvert, Sugar Lyn Beard, and Blake Anderson. This looks so, so bad and I don’t even know why Netflix is pushing it with two full trailers, but here we go anyway. Have at it. Here’s the second official trailer for Jake Szymanski’s The Package, from Netflix’s YouTube: You can still watch the first trailer for …

“My letters are my most secret possessions.” Netflix has released a full, official trailer for romantic comedy To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, an adaptation of the popular YA book of the same name written by Jenny Han. The film’s plot is about a young woman named Lara Jean Song Covey, whose love life goes from imaginary to out of control when the love letters for every boy she’s ever loved are mysteriously mailed out. From the filmmaker who last made Carrie Pilby. Lana Condor stars as Lara Jean, and the cast includes Janel Parrish, Noah Centineo, John Corbett, Emilija Baranac, Israel Broussard, and Andrew Bachelor. It looks cute and smart and enjoyable! I have high hopes for this, want to watch it once it’s out. Here’s the full trailer (+ poster) for Susan Johnson’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, from YouTube: You can still watch the first teaser trailer for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before …

“I was just supposed to be camping!” Netflix has debuted an official trailer for an indie comedy titled The Package, the latest from Funny or Die filmmaker Jake Szymanski (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates). The wacky, stupid comedy is about a group of teenage friends who go on a spring break camping trip, but an accident causes them to change their plans in hopes of saving their friend. Yeah, it’s dumb and made for teenagers to get drunk and laugh at. The full cast for this includes Daniel Doheny, Geraldine Viswanathan, Sadie Calvano, Luke Spencer Roberts, Eduardo Franco, Michael Eklund, Gary Jones, Alexander Calvert, Sugar Lyn Beard, and Blake Anderson. These kind of dumb comedies are not for me, way too goofy and stupid and just not funny. But if you’re into this kind of humor, then have fun. Here’s the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jake Szymanski’s The Package, direct from YouTube: When four teens go on a spring …
