Warner Bros. Pictures have unleashed a batch of new images from "Sherlock Holmes" through USA Today. Most of the photos take their focus on the two main characters, Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock and Jude Law's Dr. Watson, while a couple of them tag along Rachel McAdams' Irene Adler and Mark Strong's villainous Lord Blackwood.
The freshly-released pictures tease on some of the actions to be seen as well as the drama to be expected. In one of the images, Sherlock is captured practicing his bartitsu skills in fighting two baddies who are blocking his way through the catacombs of London's St. Paul's Cathedral. In another one, he and Adler flee for their lives "during a harrowing sequence inside a pig slaughterhouse."
Photos of Holmes and Watson checking out a laboratory for clues to a murder and enjoying a cup of tea inside their Baker Street flat are also included in the set. Two other pics give Lord Blackwood behind bars, revealing his evil plan to Sherlock who is standing on the opposite end, and Watson wandering the crowded London street.
Along with the pictures, USA Today included a detailed set report. The "Early Look" piece described how the set looks like and contained quotes from the set with director Guy Ritchie and the two stars, Downey Jr. and Law. In addition, the report also made note that the first trailer of this drama thriller should be expected to come out with "Terminator Salvation" on May 21.
The first major big-screen version of "Sherlock Holmes" in more than 20 years, "Sherlock Holmes" will present a new portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous characters. The movie will see Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. Watson on their latest challenge. Having lethal fighting skills in addition to his legendary intellect, Holmes attempts to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy the country. This Warner Bros. film is due for U.S. release on December 25.
