New image and set photos from Sherlock Holmes : A Game Of Shadows

guy Ritchie helms a new action-packed adventure, following the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes (Downey Jr.), and his longtime trusted associate, Dr. Watson (Law), as they match wits with their arch-nemesis, the criminal genius Moriarty (Harris).”

The film also stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, and Noomi Rapace. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opens December 16th.

If you're looking out your window onto a rainy day, remember that it could be worse. If this were the 19th century,that'd be a thick pea-souper that'd give you respiratory problems soon as look at you - but on the upside, you might also get to hang out with Victorian sleuth Sherlock Holmes, as brought to life by Robert Downey Jr in Guy Ritchie's upcoming sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows and on the cover of the new Empire magazine.
This time, Sherlock himself is a bit more pulled together - he's got some snazzy new duds, for instance - and the crew are determined not to rest on their laurels (or sacks of cash) from last time. Says Downey, "Last time we were, I think, treated very kindly, considering that the movie had enough really good, bright, sweet parts and it kinda held up. However, it wasn't exactly the most innovative or clever act three of any movie. But we're all confident that, this time, for the bones of the story, we couldn't work it out any better than we have."

We also chatted to Jared Harris about playing arch villain Professor Moriarty. "He's the ringmaster. He casts his shadow over the whole film, he's the motivator of the plot.

"I'm sure you've noticed that people who don't really give a fuck what anybody else thinks, and don't care what the consequences of their actions are are long as they're okay, and don't believe in any kind of divine retribution, they have a licence to do absolutely anything they want. And people who operate within a moral compass, like Sherlock Holmes, their hands are tied. So I'd say Moriarty is very dangerous."

Shaking and crying.

lol it's funny because your icon is so chill and you aren't using all caps or even an exclamation mark, it's just like

"shaking and crying." in a monotone voice, good comment
ginormouspotato 25th-Aug-2011 05:59 pm (UTC)

I really hope this isn't bad. If it is I guess it's okay because we still have Sherlock, thank god.

Noomi looks stunning.

I hope the sequel surpasses the original
rozola 25th-Aug-2011 05:46 pm (UTC)
so excited for this! hell, the whole movie could be rdj and jude law sitting in a room bantering with each other and i'd gladly pay to see it.
purplerains 25th-Aug-2011 05:49 pm (UTC)
They have great chemistry.
walker_sarah 25th-Aug-2011 05:46 pm (UTC)
My body is ready for this!

Also watched BBC Sherlock's first ep yesterday and I love it. A little bit dissapointed that there is only 3 episodes.
autophanous 25th-Aug-2011 06:04 pm (UTC)
but there's going to be another season!
walker_sarah 25th-Aug-2011 06:20 pm (UTC)
I know but 1 season with 3 episodes? I didn't expect that lol
ljubavirakija 25th-Aug-2011 05:47 pm (UTC)
Also, I still think Noomi should have replaced Rachel as Irene Adler. Rachel was miscast from the beginning
dorkii_rawk 25th-Aug-2011 05:47 pm (UTC)
I is ready for the subtext~~~
walker_sarah 25th-Aug-2011 05:48 pm (UTC)

missthing19 25th-Aug-2011 05:48 pm (UTC)
I've missed you and your fabulous icon!
dorkii_rawk 25th-Aug-2011 05:51 pm (UTC)

ginormouspotato 25th-Aug-2011 05:55 pm (UTC)
subtext? dude they fucking spoon on the floor in the trailer <3
purplerains 25th-Aug-2011 05:48 pm (UTC)
They gypsy lady looks so useless and lame. :/ Why replace Rachel McAdams with an even lamer character?
yummyhead2toe 25th-Aug-2011 05:49 pm (UTC)
No Rachel?!
purplerains 25th-Aug-2011 05:50 pm (UTC)
Nope. There's a new love interest.
yay_4_me 25th-Aug-2011 06:16 pm (UTC)
There shouldn't be a love interest at all.
yummyhead2toe 25th-Aug-2011 05:48 pm (UTC)
Nice ascot.
isntdaveone 25th-Aug-2011 05:49 pm (UTC)
is this going to FLOP/BOMB or what??
la_petite_singe 25th-Aug-2011 05:49 pm (UTC)
I feel like a hipster douche for liking the BBC series better, but... :\
walker_sarah 25th-Aug-2011 05:51 pm (UTC)
I don't think you are a hipster douche because I think more people (at least here) like BBC series better. Tho wish tumblr relax a little bit. I don't want to see "Which Sherlock Is Better" wank on my dashboard.
la_petite_singe 25th-Aug-2011 05:53 pm (UTC)
Oh, definitely. I ♥ Tumblr, but sometimes the stans can be craaaazy.
ginormouspotato 25th-Aug-2011 05:56 pm (UTC)
ugh i hate that shit
it's the same with the doctor who fandom. there are people who complain that new!who sucks and old!who was better when really they are all great in their own way. same goes for each adaptation of sherlock. :/
sorion 25th-Aug-2011 06:31 pm (UTC)
"Which Sherlock Is Better"

Oh, Jeez -_-
I love 'em both. So there.
evie 25th-Aug-2011 10:57 pm (UTC)
I actually went off tumblr because all the wank-starting idiots that I try to avoid in various LJ fandoms moved there and took their bullshit with them. Before drifting away from it it had actually got to the point where I had blocked Sherlock on Tumblr Saviour because it had become so bad. I'm totally behind on news and stuff now but at least reading my dashboard isn't a fucking headache every morning since people reblog the same bullshit over and over. How many times have people had the Irene argument by now, I wonder.
soul_amazinn 25th-Aug-2011 05:52 pm (UTC)
Well, the BBC series is better.
I hated the first Sherlock movie so ...
jessi_cola 25th-Aug-2011 06:01 pm (UTC)
Like the other commenter(s) said above, they're both different in their own way but IA, I prefer the BBC series over this one.
insane_pyro_grl 25th-Aug-2011 06:05 pm (UTC)
Don't worry, bb, I feel the same way.

I love the RDJ version for the ridiculous subtext [and RDJ himself], but the BBC version is loads better. Is it 2012 yet?
erin_chupacabra 25th-Aug-2011 06:06 pm (UTC)
The BBC version is better, ijaf.
fassavoy 25th-Aug-2011 06:20 pm (UTC)
No you are right in this case. The BBC series is indeed better. The first movie sucks but I'll give it another chance for this second one because of flawless goddess Noomi Rapace.
runsamrun 25th-Aug-2011 06:21 pm (UTC)
I think they're way different. I watched the last episode of the BBC series last night and I was RAGING at the way it ended. Like, punching my pillow and shit.
sorion 25th-Aug-2011 06:29 pm (UTC)
They're so different but both awesome... ^-^'

I couldn't possibly decide.
theratwhispers 25th-Aug-2011 05:50 pm (UTC)
That title, A Game of Shadows, it just reminds me of Babylon 5....
ginormouspotato 25th-Aug-2011 05:58 pm (UTC)
i'm still waiting for my first two season to finish downloading so i can get started on watching it.

my tumblr peoples have been tempting me with londo and his fierce centauri hair...
theratwhispers 25th-Aug-2011 06:00 pm (UTC)
Londo is awesome. Babylon 5 is so much fun, homg, I still love that show.
dosko 25th-Aug-2011 10:48 pm (UTC)
Best part of Babylon 5 is when you rewatch the whole thing and see how perfectly everything was foreshadowed. They just don't write shows like that anymore.
verdhandi 25th-Aug-2011 07:12 pm (UTC)
That title reminds me of A Game of Thrones!
