RDJ on the set of "Sherlock Holmes"

This is not a spoof trailer from the beginning of “Tropic Thunder”. Don’t expect Jason Statham or any “Rock’N’Rollas”. This is the first official kickass preview of Guy Ritchie’s epic Christmas day offering to the world, “Sherlock Holmes”. Starring the ubiquitous and magnetic Robert Downey Jr. as the titular character and the charismatic Jude Law as his loyal cohort “Dr. Watson”, the movie embodies the humorous and epic “Pirates of the Caribbean” tone, coupled with a contemporary approach to the film style.

Guy Ritchie is sure to get tongues wagging with his departure from the major elements in the novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Holmes is traditionally portrayed as a well groomed, refined, wiry and astute gentleman who happened to be a great boxer, singlestick expert and fencer. Downey seems to have created a quirky slightly sloppy but wholly endearing version of the literary Holmes. With the fusion of Guy Ritchie’s unique brand of filmmaking and Robert Downey Jr. as the deliciously entertaining literary hero, it’s a safe bet to say that it’s going to be a wonderful Christmas.
