New trailer for 'Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows'
Before we get into the inevitable debate of who would win a fight between Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark and Sherlock Holmes, let's just enjoy the new trailer for 'Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows," which introduces a new adventure and the detective's ultimate foe, Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris).
Jude Law is back as the faithful and dry-witted Dr. Watson. They are joined by Noomi Rapace, who starred in the Swedish "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' trilogy.
If you don't mind some mild spoilers, the official synopsis follows the jump.
When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder—a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris). The cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead of Holmes as he spins a web of death and destruction—all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.
