New Set Photos from Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes

Ah yes, there is the Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson we've been waiting to see! Finally we get a good glimpse at Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in Guy Ritchie's upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie. I wouldn't normally keep on posting on set photos like this, but the first reveals of Holmes and Watson weren't exactly that flattering. I knew they were just bad pictures and expected this to look much better through Ritchie's lens. Alas we've got a few new photos today, courtesy of, that finally give us an actual glimpse of what Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson will look like on the big screen.

Click either of the photos below for even more full on set photos, if you may be interested.

Guy Ritchie of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and RocknRolla beforehand is both writing and directing the film. In addition to Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, Rachel McAdams stars as Irene Alder and Mark Strong as Lord Blackwood. I think this is looking better actually seeing Downey Jr. and Law in their costumes and in their actual shooting environment, rather than on some London street. And I do think they are both the perfect choice for modern interpretations of Holmes and Watson. I've still got a good feeling that this is going to be great, so we'll be holding out for more juicy tidbits as they arrive.

Is it me or does RDJ look like a beat up Rocky Balboa in one of those pics?

He looks far too short and not much in like the holmes portrayed in the sketches.

Coincidentally, Jude Law was also in the 80s/90s Sherlock Holmes TV series (the most popular remake so far) with Jeremy Brett. He's only a teenager in it- pretty funny!
