Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows

Two cool teaser posters just debuted last week for the anticipated sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and while we're waiting for the first trailer to debut (it will definitely be attached to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, but online sometime before then), we have a glimpse at a few more photos from the film with Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Noomi Rapace and a first look at Sherlock's infamous nemesis Moriarity played by Jared Harris. In addition to the photos, some story details have finally surfaced that give us an idea of what we can expect from this anticipated December release.

Here's the new photos from Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows courtesy of USA Today:

The newspaper also revealed that the sequel will indeed see the return of Rachel McAdams reprising her role as Irene Adler but the story follows Holmes and Watson as they trace Moriarty's murderous trail with the help of Holmes' older brother, Mycroft (Stephen Fry), and a Gypsy named Sim (Rapace). Apparently the story takes plenty of cues from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1893 short story The Final Problem, which first appeared in Strand Magazine and introduced Moriarty.

Speaking of which, director Guy Ritchie comments on the infamous villain saying, "Moriarty is one of the most famous villains of all time. But we didn’t want to make him a conventional character. The challenge was to still make him modern, believable.” If anyone can help with that goal, it's an actor like Jared Harris, and I can't wait to see him face off against Downey and Law this December. Stay tuned for the first trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows sometime this week!

    This and Captain America are my most anticipated movies in the second half of 2011.  Aside from a few gems its been a dissappointing year movie wise.  But a quality Cap and Holmes would please me to no end!
