Guy Ritchie’s first outing at directing a Sherlock Holmes film was a real surprise in 2009, I don’t think anyone expected it to be quite as superb as it turned out to be. It was a massive success and audiences loved it, so why wouldn’t he make a second? However, we have all been wondering whether the first movie was a one off. On the basis of this stunning trailer it would seem the first movie was not a one off, and Ritchie has struck gold again! This trailer is absolutely fantastic and I cannot wait to see this in UK cinemas on December 16th. Robert Downey Jnr is back as Holmes, with Jude Law reprising his role of Dr Watson. Also along for the ride are Noomi Rapace as Sim, Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler, Stephen Fry as Mycroft Holmes and Jarred Harris as Prof Moriaty. Here is a rather lengthy synopsis courtesy of Apple:

Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law returns as his formidable colleague, Dr. Watson, in “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.” Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room…until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large–Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)–and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder–a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by one Professor Moriarty. Mixing business with pleasure, Holmes tracks the clues to an underground gentlemen’s club, where he and his brother, Mycroft Holmes (Stephen Fry) are toasting Dr. Watson on his last night of bachelorhood. It is there that Holmes encounters Sim (Noomi Rapace), a Gypsy fortune teller, who sees more than she is telling and whose unwitting involvement in the prince’s murder makes her the killer’s next target. Holmes barely manages to save her life and, in return, she reluctantly agrees to help him. The investigation becomes ever more dangerous as it leads Holmes, Watson and Sim across the continent, from England to France to Germany and finally to Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead as he spins a web of death and destruction–all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.

  1. While I enjoyed the first…its not a patch on Sherlock, the BBC Show by Stephan Moffit

    Probably the best adaption of the great man for many of years 😮

  4. Yeah Sherlock was better, but I was surprised at how good the Ritchie film was. As a bit of a Holmes fan I dreaded going to see it, expecting a real travesty, but the film was actually rather good and certainly no disgrace to Coana Doyle’s creation.
