Final Official Poster for WB's 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows'
A Game of Shadows. There's no tagline? Maybe the subtitle speaks for itself. Warner Bros has debuted via Yahoo the final poster for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, his follow-up to the last Sherlock Holmes stylish revamped adventure. Robert Downey Jr. stars as Holmes, with Jude Law as Dr. Watson, both seen posing on this particular poster in an alleyway. Unlike the last few posters that have been facial close-ups, this one has them both standing ominously distant from the center of the poster, which I actually like. There is an air of mystery to this, especially with Moriarty's shadow, I quite like it. See below!
Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. John Watson join forces to outwit and bring down their fiercest adversary, Professor Moriarty, in this sequel to Lionel Wigram's new take on Sherlock Holmes from 2009.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is again directed by British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, of Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Revolver, RocknRolla, and the first Sherlock Holmes. The screenplay was written by husband & wife writers Kieran & Michele Mulroney, who wrote and directed the indie film Paper Man. Warner Bros and Silver Pictures are bringing Sherlock Holmes 2 to theaters starting December 16th.

Interesting how they used the fine print to frame up the poster. I like.

Annoying how Watson is pointing at nothing when you follow the shadow back to Moriarty's figure. Not to mention.. terrible shadow work. Amused at how close they are, and no, I'm not insinuating anything. Haha.

.... more awful posters for Sherlock Holmes coming. I haven't seen Photoshopping so badly since X-Men: First Class, and that was catastrophic to say the least...
