A new trailer for Guy Ritchie's upcoming Sherlock Holmes
is now online. The film is set to be released on Christmas Day, and I reckon all you people who make a habit of visiting the cinema on December 25th have got a treat in store for you this year, should you choose to watch Sherlock and his pals. Starring Robert Downey Jr as the eponymous hero, Jude Law as his ever-reliable sidekick Dr Watson and Rachel McAdams as the love interest, it could potentially be a big box office hit. It definitely has a broad appeal with its A-list cast and with it being based on one of the most famous characters ever created. Also, Ritchie has said that it is a film which all the family can enjoy, and lets face it, family films are where the big money is at.
The trailer is very similar to the last one, I had to re-watch the first trailer to make sure it wasn't the same one. But check it out anyway, I implore you.
I admit, I was originally sceptical, the idea of Guy Ritchie doing a modern take of Sherlock Holmes
didn't exactly make me pee my pants with excitement. But I have to say it looks fun, and from these brief snippets, the dialogue seems very punchy (not unlike Holmes himself). Also hats off to Robert Downey Jr for his impressive English accent, as a Brit myself I can say it's one of the best I've heard from an American.
