New Character Posters and Featurette for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
11.08.11 by Ryan
Some new character posters have arrived online for the upcoming sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, less than a month after some previous character posters were released.
Like in 2009's Sherlock Holmes, Robert Downey, Jr. will again play the eccentric title character, with Jude Law returning as Dr. Watson. Like their October counterparts, the backdrop to the posters is the sequel's various European location, with Downey Jr. again depicted in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Also featured are the new addition to the cast, specifically Jared Harris as Holmes' arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty and Noomi Rapace the gypsy Sim (or Simza, as she is referred to on her poster), who joins the duo on their latest adventure. The new characters — Moriarty is hardly "new", but will be appearing for the first time in this particular Sherlock Holmes franchise — are discussed further in latest featurette for A Game of Shadows, which focuses on the inclusion of Moriarty and Sim.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows co-stars Stephen Fry as Sherlock's brother, Mycroft Holmes, with Eddie Marsan reprising his Sherlock Holmes role as Inspector Lestrade and Rachel McAdams returning as Irene Adler. The sequel was written by Kieren and Michele Mulroney and is again directed by Guy Ritchie.
