Being as perceptive as Sherlock Holmes isn't always a good thing. In fact, as Robert Downey Jr. tells Noomi Rapace in this new trailer for Game of Shadows, seeing everything is his curse.
Fortunately, though, he doesn't have to sit around and do a lot of worrying about that, because as we see there are more pressing dangers at hand...like explosions. Lots of them. And of course, trying to fit into a dress...
Holmes is back with his trusty sidekick Watson (Jude Law), and the two are embroiled in the biggest case of their careers: thwarting the most formidable criminal mind in all of Europe, Dr. Moriarty. And with the collapse of Western civilization hanging in the balance, the two are feeling the pressure.
But it isn't anything they can't handle. Explosions, gun fights and witty banter dominate and definitely have us looking forward to this caper. A nice comedic bonus though? More glimpses of Downey rocking some glamorous eveningwear. He might not think it's his best disguise, but we don't think he's giving himself enough credit.
