Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in another photo from Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Now that we officially have a real title for the SHERLOCK HOLMES sequel (which is now called SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS) it’s safe to assume that photos will be rolling in to help promote and keep the anticipation up for the film. Even though the film won’t be released until mid-December, the studios must keep their film in the back of your mind so you won’t forget. Below you can see a teaser photo from an issue of Empire magazine. It shows Watson (Jude Law) getting ready to be hitched to a lovely lady played by Kelly Reilly, with Holmes off to the side looking a little worse for the wear. Robert Downey, Jr. also gives a statement about the sequel, he says:
It’s not going to be broader. That’s the usual thing they [studios] do. They say, ‘Hey, we were funny in that last movie.’ And then they go out and make some f@#king ‘LETHAL WEAPON 9’ garbage. It’s got a mixture of things that a lot of films can’t get away with… it’s a big-budget period film, which are never made these days… there’s real serious menace to it… and we’re taking it further—these two guys can’t live with each other and can’t live without each other.
I have even higher hopes than before and am keeping my fingers crossed that this sequal won’t be as watered down as some we’ve seen in the past. SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS will be directed by Guy Ritchie.
