“Sherlock Holmes” Posters Revealed

Action packed and star studded, even the trailer sells a new concept for an old hero. Guy Ritchie promised a new take on “Sherlock Holmes,” and he delivers by casting Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes, Rachel McAdams as bad girl Irene Adler, and Jude Law as sidekick Watson. Yes, you heard right, Jude Law is playing bumbling sidekick Watson. Wouldn’t he have been a better fit for the brooding and mysterious crime solver? Whatever, he’s definitely still got our attention. “Sherlock Holmes” makeover is revealed in previews that show him in shirtless boxing matches and handcuffed to a bed naked, but the whole cast insists this is deeply rooted in the original description of the character. If this sounds just a little too heavy for you, the good news is that “Borat” and “Bruno”‘s Sasha Baron Cohen is in talks to star in a comedic version of “Sherlock Holmes” alongside Will Ferrell. These two haven’t been paired up since “Talledega Nights,” but we all remember how that turned out! Guess we’ll just have to wait and see which couple is going to make the best crime fighting duo.
