The recent marketing push for Guy Ritchie’s next sojourn to Baker Street has been leading up to this – our first proper look at Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

With the trademark quick witted banter and slow motion action scenes the second film has Noomi Rapace, Jared Harris and Stephen Fry joining the cast with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law doing their best to take on one of literature’s most famous double acts.

Certainly the first film was enjoyed by many people and this sequel takes place a year after the first and is partly based on Conan Doyle’s short The Final Problem, which as Holmes scholars will know, involves a trip to Switzerland and a visit to the Reichenbach Falls, giving a fairly obvious hint as to how this one will end.

Due out December 16th in the UK. Apple have just put up the trailer so get clicking…
