It must be the week for Robert Downey Jr. news. Following yesterday’s hype-worthy reveal of The Avengers trailer, Yahoo! Movies has unveiled two new character banners for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, featuring its stars Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.
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.
A sequel to Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, the film will also feature Mycroft Holmes (Stephen Fry) and Sim (Noomi Rapace), a Gypsy fortune teller, who sees more than she is telling.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is released in Australia on 5 January 2012 from Roadshow.
