First trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows arrives

“I have a feeling you’re in danger”

game of shadows

The first full trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows has been loaded online.

Pretty much nothing about the film’s plot is revealed (though Holmes does mention he’s on “the single most important case” of his career), other than the fact that it involves two new characters.

Those two new characters are, of course, Noomi Rapace’s comely gypsy, and Jared Harris as Holmes’ preening arch nemesis Moriarty.

There’s also mention that one of the big, train-set action scenes takes place during Watson’s honeymoon – which is of course par for the course in the world of Holmes.

So what do we get? Well, quite a few big budget explosions, more catty banter between Holmes and Watson, and the lion’s share of “look how stylish we are!” slow-mo.

If that sounds like your cup of tea, check out the trailer for yourself below…

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows opens 16 December.

Can Holmes 2 avoid the curse of sequelitis and become a decent follow-up? Tell us your thoughts below...

      Loving the 'exclusive to Itunes trailers' at the start...

      The first one didn't excite me that much, but this looks good :)

      First was fun throw away nonsense, i enjoyed it. But this trailer does nothing for me, hoping the film itself hits the mark. RDJ is a formidable presence on screen, but his mumbling detective shtick could so easily cross into annoying territory.

      First on was shockingly bad with this looking like it will follow suit. I hate trailers where all they do is show explosions and running... pointless.
