Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

In the months leading up to the holiday release of the sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, we've seen two fantastic trailers and a couple batches of posters featuring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law front and center with Jared Harris and Noomi Rapace tucked away in the background. Now each of the film's stars gets their own full characters poster and like all of the previous posters, each character is holding something with which they could easily maim or kill someone. Some people complain that there's just too much action, but I enjoyed the first film and look forward to the sequel. See the posters 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.

Fantastic. Another series of movie posters with debris/sparks in the foreground.

The Sherlock one looks great.  He doesn't appear to be as flakey as he was in the last one.  More confident and intelligent.  Moriarty, on the other hand, looks a bit too photo shopped for my taste.  Still, can't complain.

They kinda lack atmosphere and character. They'd be good for a video game... maybe

Too hygienic. It's like they smothered toothpaste all over the backgrounds. This is usually the result of a client telling the agency "This world feels too old and aged, it needs to feel FRESH and NEW!"

Sherlock doesn't look crazy enough, that's the key to his success, he has that crazy streak that gives him his advantage in solving the case(s), especially when he faces off against Moriarty, Downey Jr. portrayed that craziness quite well in the last movie, but this Sherlock poster shows him as confident, which he never really was when dealing with Moriarty, his mind was in chaos, the trailer is evidence enough
