Robert Downey Jr. in second “Sherlock Holmes” trailer
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Tuesday night, a second trailer for Guy Ritchie’s sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” aired during the Scream Awards on Spike TV. Warner quickly posted the new clip online, and we’re happy to share it with you below:
The teaser makes Ritchie’s second crack at a Sherlock Holmes story more explosive. Seriously, something’s blowing up every 10 seconds. Yet we’re interested in the explosive chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as Holmes and Watson, respectively, who this time appear to be matching wits with legendary adversary Moriarty (Jared Harris of “Mad Men”).
I thought Ritchie’s first “Holmes” was a witty and fast-paced ride that found a way to incorporate the director’s visual gimmicks with a twisty period mystery. Downey and Law helped sell the convoluted plot, mind you, and I’m guessing they’ll do even heavier lifting here.
Rachel McAdams can be spotted in the clip returning as Irene Adler. And the new girl is Noomi Rapace, best known for playing Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish Millennium trilogy (that’s about to be remade by David Fincher).
“Game of Shadows” will be in theaters on Dec. 16.
