With the success of Guy Ritchie’s 2009 adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective series, there was no doubt that a sequel would be in the works.
Now, the trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows has debuted, and it is full of action, wry humor, sometimes-difficult-to-understand accents and, yes, that’s Robert Downey, Jr. in drag.
Downey, Jr. reprises his role as the genius detective with Jude Law as the loyal Dr. Watson. Noomi Rapace, who portrayed Lisbeth Salander in Sweden’s Millennium trilogy, joins the duo on their quest to bring down the cunning Professor Moriarty.
Check out the trailer below.
