‘Sherlock Holmes 2′ Set Photos

Published 5 years ago by , Updated September 18th, 2012 at 7:48 am,

Robert Downey Jr. sports brown locks and Jude Law still has his pencil-thin mustache in the first photos from the set of Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster sequel, Sherlock Holmes 2.

Ritchie and his crew have begun shooting the followup to last year’s successful “updated” cinematic take on Sherlock Holmes, which features Downey Jr. as the brilliant titular detective and Law as his loyal companion, Dr. Watson – the straight man (no pun intended) of the duo.

Joining these two fellows in Sherlock Holmes 2 will be the likes of Noomi Rapace as the film’s female lead, a “French Gypsy”; Stephen Fry as Sherlock’s older brother, Mycroft; and (reportedly) Jared Harris as S. Holme’s arch-nemesis, Professor Moriarty. Rachel McAdams is rumored to be reprising her turn as Irene Adler for the sequel, but she is expected to get even less screen time than she did in the first Sherlock Holmes adventure.

The first images from the set of Sherlock Holmes 2 offer a look at Downey Jr.’s new hairdo and both he and Law riding around via horse-drawn carriage – nothing to get overly excited about just yet, but it’s a good reminder that bigger and better things are on their way.

Check out some of the Sherlock Holmes 2 set photos below:

Sherlock Holmes grossed over half a billion dollars in theaters worldwide and was generally well-received by moviegoers, with our own Vic Holtreman reiterating claims that the film played out like “a cross between ‘Batman Begins’ and the first ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’” (read his review HERE). Anticipation is pretty high for Sherlock Holmes 2, which will hopefully finish off the 2011 holiday season on a high note – much like its predecessor did last winter.

Sherlock Holmes 2 arrives in theaters in the U.S. on December 16th, 2011.

  1. Got over his cold then?

    Sarcasm aside, loved every second of the first film, it rivalled Star Trek for my 2009 film of the year. Very interested to see where the sequel us going, I’d like to maybe see some elements from the books included at some point.

    • Agreed.

  2. this is gonna be great

  3. I absolutely adored the first film. Before it was released, there was already talk that Warner Bros. was interested in a franchise, and I could not have been more excited.

    Here’s hoping for continued success with the sequel.

  4. i just hope he has time for another Rock ‘N Rolla film sometime as well.

    • i agree 100% with that

  5. I was a really big fan of the first one and I’m really looking forward to this. The first one was so good and it had a good blend of smarts, comedy, and action. Robert Downey Jr was surprisingly (at least to me) good as Sherlock Holmes and I thought that he and Jude Law had great chemistry together. I was pleasantly surprised by this movie so bring on this sequel.

  6. i agree 101% with that

  7. Guy Ritchie movies always look good, I liked Revolver even though I had no idea what was going on.

    • lol. that film was just strange

      • Did you understand it? Who’s Mr Gold?

  8. so does anyone have any idea for the plot im thinking it could be hound of the baskavills since it look like it’s the country side were they are

    any ideas anyone????

    • My theory is that the 2nd movie will involve Holmes’ confrontation with Moriarty at Reichenbach Falls as in the story The Final Problem. And the 3rd movie (which I am convinced will happen) will involve Holmes’ return a la The Empty House.


  10. guy, jude, and downey were all at the ufc fights on saturday night in london i believe.

  11. I really REALLY enjoyed the first film, so I am really looking forward to this sequel. Can’t wait to see it outgross the new HP movie. :P

    • Andy…why start that nonsense. we put up enough from the one you’re trying to antagonize lol.

  12. i want to see sherlock holmes vs.potc vs.league of extraordinary gentlemen(the book version) vs.that new Edgar allan poe/john cusack flick vs van helsing.

  13. Is it fair to say that RDJ is on a roll!! Probably the most sought after actor in hollywood!! Much deserve for one heck of an actor!!

  14. I have watched SHERLOCK HOLMES 2 movie yesterday…the start moving slowly after that is begin robust…
