The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twelve short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his fictional detective Sherlock Holmes.

The stories are not in chronological order, and the only characters common to all twelve are Holmes and Dr. Watson. The stories are related in first-person narrative from Watson’s point of view.
The Holmes & Watson is written and directed by Etan Cohen (Get Hard) with Mosaic and Gary Sanchez Productions producing. The movie is set to arrive in theaters on December 21, 2018.
