New Sherlock Holmes Trailer

sherlock-holmes-postersmallSherlock Holmes is only a few months away, and so there is little about the film at this point that cannot be known from previous trailers, but the newest trailer, debuting exclusively on MTV, brandishes other facets of the Holmes character, such as the fighting ability he wields under intense action. That’s not just a Hollywood invention either. Bare-knuckle fighting is canonical Holmes, and it’s nice to see them highlight his brawn as well as his brains. I enjoyed this trailer a lot more, actually. I don’t know how the humor is going to turn out, but it presented him as more of a well-rounded person: his wit, his intelligence, and his fighting spirit. There’s a lot more to like here, and it makes me feel better about the film.
