First two posters for Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows

While the title may be terrible the first artwork to emerge for Guy Ritchie’s sequel to his excellent reimagining of Sherlock Holmes is anything but. The first two posters for Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows have arrived and Holmes and Watson share equal billing with a poster each. The Holmes poster features a dapper Robert Downey Jr in the foreground, with arch nemesis Moriarty, played by Jared Harris, lurking in the background. The Watson poster is a close-up on Jude Law as the good doctor, with Noomi Rapace as Sim towards the back.

In addition to these four the new film sees Eddie Marsan return as Inspector Lestrade, with Stephen Fry joining as Holmes’ brother Mycroft.

The film will be released at Christmas and should be worth some of your time over the festive period.
