The recent Sherlock Holmes film staring Robert Downey Jr. as the world’s most famous detective attracted a rather fierce Steampunk following. It’s subtle undertones of impossible technology matched with one of our favorite fictional characters from the Victorian era made it an easy sells to retro-futurists. Paired with the fact that it actually was a rather good movie with some interesting interpretations of the detective and a respectable amount of homage paid to Doyle’s source material made it a film worth seeing and unabashedly enjoying.
The sequel to the first Holmes movie has been whispered about for some time, and, thankfully, it’s finally starting to pop up every now and again. A few days ago, the trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows was released. Check it out here:
I can only hope that this one turns out to be as good as the first film. I’ll definitely be seeing it when it hits theaters in December.
