Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

I am beyong excited to see that another Sherlock Homes movie is coming to theatres this December.
Slated for wide release on December 16th, 2011. The second installment of the smashing series penned by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the 1800's, reunites the stars of the first movie.

Jude Law reprises his role as Sherlock Holmes' trusted sidekick Watson
Rachel McAdams joins the cast once again as Irene Adler, which I am especially excited about because I was worried she wouldn't be in the second movie.
And of course the suberply talented and fiercly hilarious Robert Downey Jr.
(who shares my birthday *tee hee*) will once again be the famed Holmes!

Also included in the cast will be Stephen Fry as Mycroft Holmes and Jarred Harris as Holmes' eternal nemesis Professor Moriarty. I'm really looking forward to Moriarty's debut into the film adaptations after the hint we got of this cunning character in the previous film.

I was so impressed with the scenery and backdrop of Victorian London in the previous film as everything from the lush outifits to the dreary and filthy streets of London screamed accuracy.

Check out the trailer here: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows


  1. I can't believe this movie is coming out already! And there is a trailer!?! Totally watching it when I get home from work! I fell asleep at the end of the first one (not because it was boring...but because I was genuinely tired) so I'll have to rent and re-watch it...I remember really enjoying everything I watched before I nodded off

  2. I just saw the trailer for this last night during the previews in HP7!
    I loved the first one and knew more were coming so I'm super excited about this!

    Holmes seems to do a lot more fighting in these movies than he ever did in the books, but it looks pretty cool so I'm ready to forgive that :P hehe
    I didn't know Rachel McAdams was back! In the trailer I saw last night, she wasn't in it so I wasn't sure, but hopefully she is!!
