Warner Bros. have released the first official trailer for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows.
As with most sequels it’s more of the same, just with bigger action and the comedy is turned up a notch (Sherlock Holmes appears in drag). The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actress Noomi Rapace looks set to be a great addition to the sequel, although i’m disappointed with the lack of Stephen Fry.
If the trailer music sounds familiar it’s because the marketing department have used the same music they used in the trailer for the first film. I suppose there’s no need to try out new stuff if the music already works.
In A Game of Shadows Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey, Jr.) and his longtime trusted associate, Doctor Watson (Jude Law), take on their arch-nemesis, Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), with the help of Holmes’s older brother Mycroft Holmes (Stephen Fry) and a gypsy called Sim (Noomi Rapace).
