Two New Stylish Character Posters for Sherlock Holmes
So you've seen the trailer, now see the new posters as well! Er, that doesn't exactly work as well this time, but these are still badass! Empire has debuted two new official posters for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. These are a vastly different design than the moody, dark poster first revealed at ShoWest. In fact, I think this design is great, it's sleek, it's bright, and I love Downey Jr's hair the most - it's frickin' wild! I have a feeling that Sherlock Holmes is going to be the big hit of the holiday season (besides Avatar of course), plus, the trailer looked a lot better than I was expecting. Enjoy these!
Detective Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his stalwart partner Dr. Watson (Jude Law) engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a mystical occult evil nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.
Sherlock Holmes is directed by British auteur Guy Ritchie, of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Revolver, and RocknRolla previously. The screenplay was co-written by Guy Ritchie, Michael Johnson, Anthony Peckham, and Simon Kinberg, and is based on Arthur Conan Doyle's characters first introduced in 1887. Warner Bros is bringing Sherlock Holmes to theaters starting on Christmas Day, December 25th.
