Superstar actors Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law play the best of friends as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, respectively, in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the two new character posters that were recently released to promote the movie. The posters feature the world's greatest detective and his partner-in-sleuthing brandishing weapons and looking like they are prepared to duel each other as billowing smoke in the background partially obscures two of the most iconic European landmarks, London's Big Ben and Paris' Eiffel Tower.
Set one year after Sherlock Holmes, in 1891, A Game of Shadows finds Holmes hot on the trail of the world's first supervillain, Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), while Dr. Watson juggles his loyalty to his friend with his responsibilities to his lady love, Mary Morstan (Kelly Reilly). Written by Kieren and Michele Mulroney and once again directed by Guy Ritchie, A Game of Shadows also stars Noomi Rapace, Stephen Fry, Rachel McAdams and Eddie Marsan.
