First Sherlock Holmes Teaser Poster

Straight from the halls of ShoWest in Las Vegas comes the very first teaser poster for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr. We've seen plenty of photos before, so this isn't our first look, but for most of the public, this will be their first look once they catch a glimpse of this poster at their local movie theater. Both Latino Review and Collider have huge batches of photos from the floor in Vegas, which for now, is the place to go. I don't get in until tomorrow afternoon, so I haven't had a chance to stop by and shoot my own high res photos. I've cleaned up the poster below, so hopefully it looks good enough.

Stay tuned for more coverage from ShoWest all week long, including various first looks at a few films.

Sherlock Holmes Teaser Poster

In a dynamic new portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous characters, Sherlock Holmes sends Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson on their latest challenge. Revealing fighting skills as lethal as his legendary intellect, Holmes will battle as never before to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy the country. Based on Lionel Wigram's yet-to-be-published comic.

Sherlock Holmes is both written and directed by British filmmaker Guy Ritchie of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and RocknRolla previously. In addition to Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law stars as his partner Dr. Watson, Rachel McAdams as Irene Alder and Mark Strong as Lord Blackwood. Warner Brothers will debut Sherlock Holmes in theaters on Christmas Day, Decemer 25th, later this year.

#2, I wouldn't care. Since I haven't paid any attention to the news on this I had no idea it was Downey in this so now I'm even more excited! lol

at first i was against them re-booting Sherlock Holmes, only because I'm so sick of non original material. but now seeing this poster and hearing its written/directed by Guy Ritchie I'll get off the negative side and say HOT DAMN!

#2 Hey there Dr. Dipshit, that kind of goesfor just about every teaser poster. Unless the title is right under it, people tend to be clued out. Please entertain us with more of your intellect.

#12 The poster was behind glass. Alex just cropped the image so you don't see the frame, or that is on a showroom floor.

Robert Downey Jnr, is awesome and this is great. I can't wait for christmas. It is about time that Hollywood finally notice him for his true gift as a great actor.

"Revealing fighting skills as lethal as his legendary intellect".... holmes was a good boxer yes but come on....that alone should scare away any fan of the books.

I think this is brilliant

#17, yes, its just like I Robot, because no other book/movie/story has ever set the main character up against some uber-imposing foe, to save the country/city/world... I Robot was the first movie to ever do that.

#19 did you even read my comment or just hook up on the "just like I robot" phrase.

Shige on Mar 30, 2009

That was a pretty stupid response nate, Shige was just commenting on the fact that the I robot film competely misinterpreted the original source material of Isaac Asimov's classic science fiction novel. Lets face it Guy Ritchie is a one trick pony!

I'm unimpressed, wait, or am I impressed? The poster has a gritty filmhouse feel to it that I didn't expect from a production with a large budget and a star studded cast. So at first I was disappointed with the quality, now I'm starting to wonder if it's intentional. Hmm... Trying to go for the gritty Mr. Ritchie?

Also, I'm hoping you guys know that the huge white flare in the middle is from a flash, not actually part of the poster.

RDJ looks like a pimp. 🙂 jk.

Oh no tobacco use on the poster! The MPAA and that oh so entertaining psa before every film might be the foe Sherlock is going to have to face first! The poster is okay, but the idea of the film sounds great. Hollywood, original ideas, when was that... ever?
