'Sherlock Holmes' trailer: Hey, it's Tony Stark with a pipe! Elementary!

It sure is kind of Robert Downey Jr. to give us Sherlock Holmes in between the Iron Man movies. And if the new Holmes trailer is any indication, this movie (which costars Jude Law and Rachel McAdams, and is directed by Guy Ritchie) is definitely not going to suck. Downey appears to add just the right amount of smart ass to the Holmes character — though a seemingly different kind than that which he lent to Iron Man‘s Tony Stark. We’ve already learned that, in the film, Holmes fights a Satanist, trades banter with a dashing Watson, and is foiled by McAdams’ Irene Adler. Now we get to see it in action. And we like what we see! Take a look below and let us know your thoughts, PopWatchers? Are you already prepared to camp out for tickets to the Christmas release?

    Looks fantastic!!! Can’t wait!

    Studios will do anything to create a franchise property. If they played the material straight no one would go see it. Mix in a little Pirates of the Caribbean feel and you have a chance at a big hit.

    On the one hand, it looks hilarious and like a really fun time. On the other hand…omg what have they done to Sherlock Holmes? Yikes with the character assassination! Oh well, I think I’ll just enjoy this movie for what it is, while still hugging my Sir ACD novels and Jeremy Brett DVD collection.

    this movie is gonna be AMAZING!!!! downey jr is going to give a wonderful performance!!!

  • Clarissa

    This movie is definitely going to set off the purist in me, but I love RDJ too much to pass it up.

  • KM

    The movie looks great, but I’m a little nervous. Holmes was a drug addict. I hope they don’t take away some of the serious-ness and make him too goofy.

  • Carrie!

    OMG!!!!!! can’t wait for this one!!! Love RDJr…and Guy! Midnight showing…..I’m so there!

  • Crystal

    Yeah, I think if I just approach it as using the name but having NOTHING to do with the actual character I may enjoy it. Holmes kissing a woman is OOC even if she’s playing him. He would maybe fall for it in a cerebral match-up but not a sexual one.

    I think RDJ’s accent is very credible. I would’ve preferred Hugh Laurie as Holmes, but I love RDJ and am definetly looking forward to seeing thuis.

    Just a few words of warning: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I know it’s a different beast, but…this movie just doesn’t look good. I completely second the vote for Hugh Laurie as Sherlock. He’d be such an excellent follow-up to Basil Rathbone.

  • The Man

    This will be a monster hit. Looks phenomenal.

  • Valerie

    “Beneath this pillow, lies the key to my release.” LOL !
    Can’t wait, love RDJ and the movies seems good !

  • anoop

    Can anybody name one good movie directed by Guy Ritchie… anyone? :D

  • shelle

    God this looks absolutely amazing. I just can’t wait to see this movie! I truly love Robert Downey Jr and anything he is in. He is so talented. I think he makes the perfect Sherlock Holmes! Jude Law looks like the perfect choice for Watson as well. They play well off of each other. It looks like it will be a fun and an exciting ride!!!!
