Want a better look at Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of Sherlock Holmes? Well now you can see Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams and the rest of the cast in hi-res detail, thanks to a photo gallery that Warner Bros. has posted online.

The photos don’t reveal anything really new about the film, though considering the amount of trailers, TV spots, posters and other pormo materials that have already been released for Sherlock Holmes, maybe they want to save a few surprises for when the film actually drops this Christmas.

For now, enjoy nitpicking these hi-res photos to death. But first, an official studio-released synopsis!

Sherlock Holmes has made his reputation finding the truth at the heart of the most complex mysteries. With the aid of Dr. John Watson, his trusted ally, the renowned “consulting detective” is unequaled in his pursuit of criminals of every stripe, whether relying on his singular powers of observation, his remarkable deductive skills, or the blunt force of his fists.

After a string of brutal, ritualistic murders, Holmes and Watson arrive just in time to save the latest victim and uncover the killer: the unrepentant Lord Blackwood. As he approaches his scheduled hanging, Blackwood–who has terrorized inmates and jailers alike with his seeming connection to dark and powerful forces–warns Holmes that death has no power over him and, in fact, his execution plays right into Blackwood’s plans.

And when, by all indications, Blackwood makes good on his promise, his apparent resurrection panics London and confounds Scotland Yard. But to Holmes, the game is afoot.

Racing to stop Blackwood’s deadly plot, Holmes and Watson plunge into a world of the dark arts and startling new technologies, where logic is sometimes the best crime-fighting weapon…but where a good right hook will often do the job.

“Crime is common. Logic is rare.”

From that official synopsis, it sounds like they could have titled this film “When Sherlock met Houdini.” Seriously though, early word is that this film is going to be good holiday fun for all. Will you be in attendance?

Sherlock Holmes opens on Christmas Day.

  1. Ah Rachel Mcadams, she gives me the horn! Great looking movie too.

  2. Rental: All the commercials make it look like “the League of Extraordinary Detectives”.

  3. I’m not a fan of standing in line out in the cold, paying $12.50 for a ticket, then getting extorted at the concession stand ($7.50 for a small popcorn, $5.00 for a small soda), finally getting to the theater and being annoyed by other moviegoers who’ve left their manners and common sense at home.

    I plan on waiting for the DVD, primarily because I can watch it anytime I want. RDJ is one of those actors I’ll watch in anything, so even though the TV ads for Sherlock Holmes gives the impression that it’s “The League of Extraordinary Detectives”, I’ll sit through it anyway. :)

  4. @ Stephie

    Why comment if you arent going to go see it? Not trying to be an ass,just curious? :)

  5. @harvey…

    I’d love to see Sherlock Holmes at the multiplex, but (you knew this was coming, didn’t you? :) ), I live in Chicago, which can be a major ice box in the winter.

    Also, Chicago has one of the highest movie ticket prices in the country, thanks to sales taxes which have been slapped on the price of a movie ticket. That’s not exactly great news for the ol’ pocketbook.

    Then, there are those people who insist on leaving their manners at home. After seeing Twilight with 2 nieces and a theater filled with kids who were either talking or texting on their cellphones during the movie (including my nieces)… it kinda ruined the moviegoing experience for me.

    Sorry about the ranting, but it’s just one of those things which drives me nuts.
