When released last December, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows outperformed 2009's Sherlock Holmes ($543M in worldwide box office compared to $524M). However, the franchise wasn't just successful in theaters. Sherlock Holmes had an excellent run on home video, with DVD/Blu-ray sales earning back half of the movie's budget alone at $45 million. That trend should continue with today's DVD/Blu-ray/digital download Combo Pack release of A Game of Shadows, which includes some of the same extras that made the Sherlock Holmes disc a success, and ups the ante with a Game of Shadows movie app.
Cineastes have enjoyed Warner Bros' "Maximum Movie Mode" feature on their Blu-ray since its induction on the 2009 Watchmen disc, with director Guy Ritchie providing the in-depth commentary on the Sherlock Holmes disc, while A Game of Shadows utilizes the wit and charm of star Robert Downey Jr. to host behind-the-scenes content that includes — in addition to still galleries, story boards, and other promotional materials — seven "focus points," otherwise known as video featurettes. If it's confusing for a viewer to see Downey Jr. step out from behind the footage of the movie to then discuss it, the focus points are also available through the special features menu option. While this all sounds fairly familiar to the avid home video buyer, the real bonus is the companion Movie App (for the cost-conscious among us, it's available free from iTunes). more about the release >> Posted 06.12.12 by Ryan

Critics votes are rolling in for the upcoming sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and they seem slightly favorable. Mostly noted is the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, which may be just the thing to keep audiences interested.

"Ritchie's franchise — 7% classic formula, 93% adrenaline — is smart in a showoffy way that flatters its star as well as its audience."— Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"In an act of criminal negligence, Richie has wasted Robert Downey Jr in a sequel that eliminates smarts in favor of relentless headbanging"— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"This movie wants to be a horse but, even measured in box-office millions, it's just another nag."— Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Downey may think this interpretation is an insight, or funny, but it pushes what was already a rude rewriting of the classic characters into eye-rolling camp. And it throws everything off balance."— Stephen Whitty , Newark Star-Ledger
"I was let down by this loud and flashy but utterly empty sequel."— Richard Roeper, Richard Roper.com
"It doesn't take a master of deduction to see that Ritchie has decided to play it too safe with this sequel."— Bruce Demara , Toronto Star
Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law acquitted themselves nicely as Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, respectively, in 2009's Sherlock Holmes, thwarting the diabolical plans of Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong). In the upcoming Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, however, the stakes will be raised, as the pair will face off against their oldest and greatest nemesis: Professor James Moriarty.
Though Moriarty only appeared in two of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories — 1883's The Final Problem (which ended with Holmes and Moriarty falling to their deaths) and 1915's The Valley of Fear, Doyle's final Sherlock Holmes novel — Moriarty is as iconic and as expected character in any Sherlock Holmes franchise as Holmes and Watson. In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, Game of Shadows director Guy Ritchie called the character "the most famous villain in literature."

I can't think of a super-villain in a sort of obvious commercial sense before Moriarty in literature. He really has become the most famous villain in literature, for not doing a great deal, either, by the way. But it is interesting how he's carried so much momentum. He's an elusive character, really, and he gained his equity as much by being elusive as for being potent.
If you've paid any attention to the vast amount of preview clips and trailers for the upcoming sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, you probably noticed that the movie will feature Holmes (Robert Downey, Jr.) occasionally dressed in drag and also shirtless. However, the latest preview clip combines a shirtless, cross-dressing Holmes with danger as he hangs from the side of a moving train alongside his friend and colleague Dr. Watson (Jude Law). Nothing like action mixed with a compromising situation.
How Holmes and Watson ended up on the train isn't explained, though we can presume it's because of the duo's pursuit of the unique criminal mind of Holmes' most infamous nemesis: Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris). That, and director Guy Ritchie's intent of making the sequel to 2009's Sherlock Holmes "bigger and better."
"I'm too close to be objective about this now, but originally when we were constructing this conceptually, we just wanted to make it bigger," Ritchie told MTV. "We wanted to make it bigger and better, and I'm not sure if you can be more eloquent than that." watch the clip >> Posted 12.12.11 by Ryan
Director Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opens nationwide next Friday and Warner Bros. (WB) is doing everything it can to make sure you know about it. Multiple TV spots are airing in heavy rotation and WB recently released new still images, posters and a featurette that offers a sneak peek behind the scenes of the movie. Now, eight new preview clips have been released, offering an early look at more than eight minutes of footage from the sequel to 2009's Sherlock Holmes.
Set in 1891, one year after the events depicted in the first movie, A Game of Shadows finds Holmes in pursuit of the world's first supervillain, Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), a twisted genius who aims to change the course of history. Even with the aid of Dr. Watson (Jude Law), his intelligent-but-unmotivated brother, Mycroft (Stephen Fry), and a gypsy fortuneteller named Sim (Noomi Rapace), Holmes (Robert Downey, Jr.) will need to employ all of his pugilistic, observational and deductive reasoning skills if he hopes to thwart Moriarty's machinations. watch the preview clips >> Posted 12.04.11 by BrentJS
The final poster has been revealed for the upcoming sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and it continues a theme of having Robert Downey, Jr. hold a gun. Whether he's comfortably holding the gun on his chest or holding it in profile or aiming it in front of the Eiffel Tower, it's clear that Holmes will require the services of a pistol in the sequel.
The final poster again sees Downey Jr. taking aim, but, this time, he's paired with Dr. Watson (Jude Law) on a cobblestone street with the shadow of Holmes' arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) appearing on the building next to them. Ironically, there are few weapons revealed in ComingSoon's new photo gallery for the sequel, which do depict the other characters in the movie, including Moriarty, the gypsy Sim (Noomi Rapace), Holmes' and Watson's new partner, Sherlock's brother, Mycroft (Stephen Fry) and the returning Irene Adler (Rachel McAdams), Sherlock's love interest from 2009's Sherlock Holmes. see the new photos >> Posted 12.02.11 by Ryan
