Facing a master criminal who is similarly brilliant as he is, Robert Downey Jr.'s Holmes teams up with his trusted sidekick Jude Law's Watson and bickers all the way.
"Sherlock Holmes" won't play in theaters until Christmas Day, but Warner Bros. Pictures has offered more taste of its action and especially bromance through a brand new trailer. Debuted at MTV, this sneak peek mostly centers on Holmes and Watson as they work together while bickering all the way. At one point, Rachel McAdams' Irene Adler says, "They've been flirting this way for hours!"
The trailer also presents all kind of fights from gunfights to fistfights. Earlier, star Robert Downey Jr. has told MTV about how his legendary detective character practices his fighting skills. "He thinks through all eventualities, possibilities and counterattacks when he's fighting, so he actually has the fight worked out before he starts," so the actor claimed.
Beside the new trailer, a fresh featurette for this actioner has also been released. Courtesy of Cineplex, the video lets out a behind-the-scenes look at the movie. It also includes commentaries from the stars as well as director Guy Ritchie.
"Sherlock Holmes" is based on Lionel Wigram's upcoming comic book. This action drama will present a new portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous characters. 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.
Robert Downey Jr. toplines with Jude Law in supporting role as Dr. John Watson. Mark Strong is set to play the main villain, Lord Blackwood. Originally expected to make its debut in theaters across the United States on November 20, it is now due for December 25 release.
