sherlock holmes 1 8 New Sherlock Holmes Clips

Christmas Day this year brings us the highly-anticipated Sherlock Holmes, Guy Ritchie’s new take on the classic detective character. We recently got a big look at the film with a huge high-res image gallery, and generally we have been getting steadily hit with trailers, posters and other images for the movie since Fall season began. As far as I’m concerned, everything’s looked great so far.

8 clips from Sherlock Holmes have been released by Warner Bros., and thanks to the guys over at Collider, we have all of them back-to-back in the one player for extra convenience. I personally don’t want to watch them all, as I don’t want to see too much in fear it may lessen the impact and enjoyment of the movie itself (which is just less than a couple of weeks away from being released).

However, if you’re keen, check out the Sherlock Holmes clips below (you decide how many you want to watch icon smile 8 New Sherlock Holmes Clips ):

That first clip of the fight scene reminded me very much of the ones from Ritchie’s Brit gangster flick, Snatch, what with the super slo-mo and the close proximity of the fighters to the crowd around them. Looks great to me. I really love how Ritchie (an odd directing choice for this movie) has managed to put a new stamp on the classic character of Holmes, while still very much respecting the legacy (the inclusion of Holme’s often ignored martial arts background I’m particularly looking forward to).

I have a feeling this movie is really going to connect with moviegoers and that it will do quite well at the box office (not breaking any records but still impressing with its numbers).

Sherlock Holmes stars Robert Downey Jr. as the titular character, and co-stars Jude Law as Dr. Watson, Rachel McAdams as love interest Irene Adler and Mark Strong as villain Lord Blackwood. It hits theaters on Christmas Day this year.

  1. i really want the movie to do well but i think avatar might stay on top in week 2

  2. @vin…

    I think Sherlock Holmes will do quite well against Avatar, coming in second during Christmas weekend.

  3. I think this will knock Avatar off the top spot, certainly in the UK, Avatar may have revolutionary special effects, but Holmes has RDJ, one the finest actors working today! And Rachel Mcadams, worth the entry price alone!

  4. I agree with Sam Beckett. Avatar just does not have much in the story department, where is sherlock holmes is a brand new take on a very popular novel series and does not need special effects.

  5. Uh…Avatar does nt have anything in the story department? I have read the Holmes script, and it does nt have much in the story department guys.

    The script is mediocre at best (if you want it I will gladly email it to you) and its basically a very dumbed down Holmes. Think Pirates of the Carribean+Sherlock Holmes.

    Pity you guys are so anti-special effects, which is ironic considering the large use of effects used in Holmes to re-create old London, and you actually think will deceide any films success. Its all about how said effects are used.

    Plus, I think you guys are very mistaken. Avatars good critical reception (including golden globe noms for best picture and director), and the higher Imax/3D ticket prices will ensure it having legs. And 3D films have longer legs at the bo.

    Lastly, if Avatar is this generations Star Wars like most reviewers (including Time Magazine) claim, then it wont have a problem fending off Holmes….

  6. @southafricanguy

    You say it is about how effects are used? Avatar is one big, 3 hour long special effect. Holmes effects are there as background to the story, not to drive the story.

    Avatar has so far recieved a fantastic critical reception, but I am more interested in what the fans think of movies, not spineless critics.

    As for Sherlock Holmes, I havent read the script, that would ruin the movie for me. But I am aware of the story, and it seems more complex than that of Avatar. And Holmes has a fantastic cast, that you can actually see.

    As for Avatar being this generations Star Wars, many a time has such a claim be made. But no movie will ever have the cultural impact in the same way as Star Wars did.

  7. well, dude. Fair enough. But it really seems like you are just anti-cgi and that colors your opinion of everything. Avatar simply could nt be made any other way.

    I think its a pity that you prejudge it so much just because it uses a lot of cgi. And calling it a 3 hour special effect is funny considering how almost all the reviews are pointing out that its the heart and soul of the film that ultimatly works, because it makes you give a damn about the characters and what happens.

    And no my friend, the story to holmes is not complex at all, in fact thats exactly why I did nt like the script. Its very dumbed down, and I knew the answers before Holmes (unless you have never seen many movies). And I do not know what bigger sin a Holmes movie can make than the audiance being ahead of Sherlock….

  8. I think that if sherlock holmes is to equal or beat avatar, then it will all depend on the acting performances of RDJ, McAdams and Law.

  9. I think this because because avatar does not have any special acting performanes – don’t get me wrong, it was not acted out badly by the actors, but it was very hard to notice any acting performances with the atmosphere and special effects- you could say that the world created by james cameron was a chracter itself and was the real star.

  10. I’ve watched Avatar: the special effect’s magnificent, if only it’s matched by a more original story, like Matrix’s (not its sequels). I don’t regret seeing it, but I wouldn’t mind not seeing it, either. I’m glad it’s popular because it’s clear in its moral message and hopefully that it will make a constructive difference to people’s attitude toward the environment we’re living in.

    I don’t feel the need to compare Avatar with Holmes, especially in terms of their popularity. They belong to two very different genre. Personally I’ll definitely see Holmes because I’m a solid Holmes fan. It would be really a treat to watch Holmes during Christmas. I’ve read an early version of the script as well. I enjoy what I see and read so far. I saw the fight scene in the first clip in Graham Norton Show and was deeply impressed by the gorgeous cinematography and Robert Downey Jr’s breath-taking performance.
