Elementary! Sherlock Holmes trailer debut!

source: traileraddict.com

The first trailer for Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes has debuted online, starring Robert Downey Jr as the famed detective and Jude Law as his loyal partner Watson.

The picture looks as if it features the same visual flair that Ritchie has displayed in his previous geezer-features, although it’s refreshing to see it used in a non-gangster related context.

Although that bare-knuckle boxing scene looks like it’s been stolen straight from Snatch. Check it out and let us know your thoughts below.


I’ve got to say – looks pretty damn fine to me. Downey is inspired casting, although it kind of feels like we’re dealing with an English Tony Stark. However, with an amazing supporting cast that includes Law (who was always better in supporting roles anyway), Rachel McAdams, Mark Strong and Eddie Marsan (the crazy driving instructor in Happy-Go-Lucky), the film looks like it’ll be a winner. We know that Ritchie can pull off action; here’s hoping the story doesn’t fall flat.

Discuss: Your thoughts on Downey Jr as Holmes? Are you glad Guy Ritchie has his mitts on this property? Whatever happened to that Apatow-produced version starring Sacha Baron Cohen as Holmes and Will Ferrell as Watson?
