A Little Sunday Downey to Soften You Up for the Week Ahead

A couple of items to note on Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, scheduled to arrive in theaters on Christmas Day. And what better way to celebrate the holidays? (Your other option that day, if you’re hoping to hasten death, is Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squekuel). Latino Review gets the bragging rights as the first site to pull out their camera phone and snag a shot of the Sherlock Holmes movie poster at ShoWest (what brave, intrepid men, who will sacrifice at nothing!). And just look at it. When your movie poster features Robert Downey, Jr., I daresay it’d be hard to mess it up (which is not to say it can’t be done):


In a related note, Rachel McAdams revealed to SciFi Wire that Sherlock Holmes may also be something of an early 20th century-set bromance, which is to say that all the sexual tension may exists between the two male leads, RDJ and Jude Law:

It’s in true Guy Ritchie fashion, too. It’s lots of fighting and explosions, but, I think, from what I’ve seen, obviously Robert Downey Jr. is an amazing actor, and so is Jude Law. They make a wonderful duo. I think some people are probably skeptical. Everybody has their preconceived notions about Watson in particular. Everyone’s like, “Watson’s supposed to be like this.” Anyway, I just think Jude is a perfect Watson, oddly enough, and they’re really perfect together. That’s kind of the love story, actually. I play supposedly Sherlock’s love interest, but it’s really Watson.

And now I officially feel like I’m one rawrrrr short of replacing Billy Bush.
