A bunch of trailers are piggy backing on Harry Potter this weekend and one of them is the first trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, the sequel to the Guy Ritchie/Robert Downey Jr. reimagining of the classic detective. As hinted at at the end of the first movie, Holmes’ nemesis, Moriarty makes his debut (played by Jared Harris) and is behind an evil plot that sends Holmes and Watson headlong into danger yet again. Along for the ride with our dynamic duo is a gypsy named Sim, played by Noomi Rapace of “The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo” movies. It looks like most of the things that made the first movie fun like Holmes’ disguises, slow motion ass kicking and speed ramping is on display in this sequel. I really liked the first movie as a fun action movie and hopefully this one is just as fun. Check out the trailer below and the movie is out in December.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
