Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Trailer has premiered. Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) movie trailer stars Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Noomi Rapace, Stephen Fry, and Jared Harris. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) plot synopsis: “Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room…until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty—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, 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 are toasting Dr. Watson on his last night of bachelorhood. It is there that Holmes encounters Sim, 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.”
I never saw the first Sherlock Holmes because the trailers never did anything for me…until now. This film looks funny and entertaining. Does it stick to the source material, probably not, but that is a common practice now. Case and point: The Three Musketeers (2011).
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows also stars Eddie Marsan, Kelly Reilly, Geraldine James, Gilles Lellouche, William Houston, Affif Ben Badra, Gabrielle Scharnitzky, and Christian Wolf-La’Moy.
