Sherlock Holmes 2 Trailer: For Such a Pretty Man, Robert Downey, Jr. Does Not an Attractive Woman Make

Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law return for the sequel to Guy Ritchie’s successful 2009 Sherlock Holmes. A Game of Shadows pits Sherlock and Watson against Moriarity (“Mad Men’s” Jared Harris) and while Rachel McAdams returns, she’s MIA in the trailer, although there’s plenty of Noomi Rapace (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) to compensate.

It’s not a bad trailer; it’s similar in tone and sense of humor to the original Sherlock Holmes, which was a modest blast until Steven Moffat and Benedict Cumberbatch came along and demonstrated in their TV series how deftly a reboot could be done. All the Downey, Jr. in the world won’t compete with Moffat’s series, but the Game of Shadows looks as though it offers a crackling good time at the moviehouse over the holiday season. Popcorn, RDJ, and corsets. There are worse things. Although, I’d prefer if the corsets were not actually on RDJ.

You’ll have to watch it over on ITunes for now. As soon as a embed is available, we’ll add it here.
