Explosive Debut Trailer For Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Gotta admit, that ET preview of the “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” trailer we posted yesterday sure didn’t do the actual trailer any justice whatsoever. Here’s the full trailer, which offers up quite the action-heavy, adventurous sequel that most of us were expecting. Noomi Rapace also looks like she’s been nicely inserted into the franchise, though we don’t get nearly enough of Jared Harris as Moriarty. But hey, this is only the first look, and I expect future trailers to focus more on the battle of wills/wits/brains between Holmes and Moriarty. Until then, check out your first blast of “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.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Noomi Rapace, Jared Harris, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Fry, Kelly Reilly, Geraldine James and directed by Guy Ritchie.

The games begin December 6, 2011.
