A murder at Buckingham Palace appears to be an open-and-shut case for the world’s greatest sleuth, Detective Sherlock Holmes, and his trusted assistant, Dr John Watson. When new clues emerge, however, Holmes and Watson must use their legendary cunning to track down the killer before Queen Victoria becomes the next victim.

The Talladega Nights and Step Brothers dream team of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunite in a stroke of genius to play the eponymous characters, with thespians like Ralph Fiennes, Rebecca Hall and Steve Coogan along for the ride.

Writer-director Etan Cohen’s tongue-in-cheek and revisionist take on the literary legends might not be a masterpiece, but it’s worth a look.

Lisbeth Salander is back – sort of. After the tepid response to their 2011 remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hollywood is back at it again, instead now adapting the fourth Millennium novel, written by David Lagercrantz after original trilogy author Steig Larsson’s death.

The film sees vigilante hacker Salander (now played by Claire Foy) recruited to steal a computer program capable of accessing the world’s nuclear launch codes. But when the program is stolen from her, she must team up once again with journalist ally Mikael Blomkvist (Sverrir Gudnason) to recover the program before spies, Russian gangsters and corrupt government officials bring her down.
