New Images from Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes

It’s definitely not your father’s Sherlock Holmes. It’s Guy Ritchie’s, and ol Guy likes his Sherlock Holmes to pack heat, get into fistfights, and trade quips with his buddy Watson. So if you’re one of those cranky old timers who grew up reading Arthur Conan Doyle’s version of Sherlock Holmes, I’d just avoid this movie entirely when it opens later this year. But for the rest of you, there are ten new images from “Sherlock Holmes” in USAToday.

In a dynamic new portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous characters, “Sherlock Holmes” sends Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson on their latest challenge. Revealing fighting skills as lethal as his legendary intellect, Holmes will battle as never before to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy the country.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Rachel McAdams, Jude Law, Mark Strong, Kelly Reilly, Hans Matheson, William Hope, Robert Stone, and directed by Guy Ritchie.
