Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, coming to Blu-ray in June
If there’s a movie last year that surprised me with its under performance, it was SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS.. Everyone seemed to have loved the first one and from the opinions I received, the second one was at least equal to it in terms of humor and action. To put it in perspective, the sequel opened to about $23 million less than the original. My assumption on its lack of success is that MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL stole some of its thunder. But Warner Bros. isn’t going to make the same mistake twice and since MI4 is due to hit Blu-ray in April, SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS is waiting a couple of months and won’t hit Blu-ray until June 12th. By then, people will be more than pumped for more Robert Downey Jr. after catching him in theaters in THE AVENGERS.
SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Stephen Fry, Jared Harris, Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace. This time, we follow Sherlock Holmes as he faces his most dangerous foe yet, Professor Moriarty. Of course, he has to deal with this new foe while his trusty sidekick Watson has to deal with an even greater challenge; marriage.
Special features on the disc include a Maximum Movie Mode: Inside the Mind of Sherlock Holmes hosted by actor Robert Downey, Jr., as well as 7 behind-the-scenes featurettes (Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson: A Perfect Chemistry, Holmes Without Borders, Moriarty’s Master Plan Unleashed, Holmesavision on Steroids, Sherlock Holmes: Under the Gypsy Spell, Meet Mycroft Holmes and Guy Ritchie’s Well-Oiled Machine. Additional features are expected to be announced, so here’s hoping we can get another commentary with Robert Downey Jr. because every commentary I’ve heard of his has been great (I highly recommend catching the commentary to TROPIC THUNDER).
