Sherlock Holmes - Guy Ritchie style?

Thanks to Philip Spence for this - the first trailer for the new Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes (imdb has trailer). It's a strange one - I'm bouncing between incredulity and interest. Has that strange Plunkett & Maclaine feel to it - a film that just shouldn't work, is wrong in so many ways, but turns out to be pretty enjoyable fun. I get the same feeling off this one.

And that loud, whirring noise you might be able to hear in the background; that would be Sir ACG spinning loudly in his grave.

  1. Spinning? Surely not. Conan Doyle was famously generous with his character - "You may marry him, murder him, or do anything you like with him."

    Watching this trailer, Downey Jr does look have a good angle on him, and Jude Law is normally good value. Could be lots of fun :)
