First trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows arrives

game of shadows

The first full trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows has been loaded online.

Pretty much nothing about the film’s plot is revealed (though Holmes does mention he’s on “the single most important case” of his career), other than the fact that it involves two new characters.

Those two new characters are, of course, Noomi Rapace’s comely gypsy, and Jared Harris as Holmes’ preening arch nemesis Moriarty.

There’s also mention that one of the big, train-set action scenes takes place during Watson’s honeymoon – which is of course par for the course in the world of Holmes.

So what do we get? Well, quite a few big budget explosions, more catty banter between Holmes and Watson, and the lion’s share of “look how stylish we are!” slow-mo.

If that sounds like your cup of tea, check out the trailer for yourself below…

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows opens 16 December.
