Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Trailer

Posted by on Jul 13, 2011

If there’s one thing I don’t like about Robert Downey Jr., it’s that he was so into drugs in the late 90s that he spent the early part of this millennium doing time or in rehab, which meant I didn’t get to see him be awesome.  In recent years, though, he’s come back with a vengeance and made some damn fine movies. One that I really enjoyed was 2009’s Sherlock Holmes, and while I knew they were working on a sequel, I had no idea it was coming out this December until the first trailer was released today.

The new film promises more Holmes, more Watson, infinitely more Professor Moriarty, and a chance to see Noomi Rapace (who played Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish versions of Stieg Larson’s Millennium Trilogy) in what I believe to be her first English-speaking film.  The trailer features explosions, gunfire, scantily clad ladies, detective work, witty banter, and Robert Downey Jr. in a dress.  What more could you ask for?
