A brand new and action-packed TV trailer has just been released for "Sherlock Holmes". Brought forth by The Movie Box, this two-minute plus video opens to similar footage to the previous trailers. However, the last third of the sneak peek does feature many never-before-seen footage, including the one that shows Holmes experimenting on a dog.
Previously, leading actor Robert Downey Jr. has talked about portraying the titular character. "Sherlock Holmes is easily the toughest job I've ever had," the two-time Academy Award-nominee told MTV, before describing further about the character. Saying that Holmes is "a total badass," the actor elaborated, "He thinks through all eventualities, possibilities and counterattacks when he's fighting, so he actually has the fight worked out before he starts."
"Sherlock Holmes" is based on Lionel Wigram's upcoming comic book. The movie sends Holmes and his partner Watson on their latest challenge. Revealing fighting skills as lethal as his legendary intellect, the famous detective will battle like never before to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy the country.
Joining Robert Downey Jr. in the cast ensemble are Jude Law, who plays Watson, and Rachel McAdams, who stars as Holmes' love interest Irene Adler. Meanwhile, Holmes' arch nemesis Lord Blackwood is portrayed by Mark Strong. The movie itself will be released in U.S. theaters on December 25.
