Robert Downey Jr. is back as the eccentric Sherlock Holmes in this sequel, A Game Of Shadows. Warner Bros. released this trailer with a little introduction by RDJ, and I have to say it looks just as good as the first one. Jude Law is back as Holmes’ friend and colleague Dr. Watson, Noomi Rapace as the gypsy Sim and Stephen Fry also co-star. Mad Men’s Jared Harris plays villain Professor Moriarty.
Synopsis: Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law returns as his formidable colleague, Dr. Watson, in “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows“. Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room…until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)—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 (Eddie Marsan), 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.
The movie will hit theaters December 16,2011. Can’t wait!
