The first trailer for Guy Ritchie’s take on Sherlock Holmes has arrived online and you can watch it below.
So, how is it? Well, it’s certainly interesting. If the filmmakers were intending to create a rip-snorting blend of comedy, action and general Ritchie style, then bravo.
But if you’re expecting a traditional Sherlock Holmes adventure? Well, except for the names and the fact he’s on a case, move along, nothing to see here.
Still, Downey looks like top value as usual, and appears well matched with Jude Law’s slightly stuffy (but obviously handy when it comes to action) Watson.
The shirt-free Downey fight scene you’ve likely already seen in still pics form looks like a deleted scene from Snatch, but otherwise the film seems – on the evidence of this first trailer alone – like a lot of fun.
And Rachel McAdams rocks.
