Another Cracking “Sherlock Holmes” Trailer

After the first trailer for Guy Ritchie’s upcoming action-adventure Sherlock Holmes, our very own Lucy Furr felt a tad weird about this re-imagining of England’s finest detective. Being of a simpler mind, I thought it was flippin’ fantastic, and from the looks of the latest trailer, it’s going to be a jolly good show indeed.

There’s a fair amount of rollicking action thrown in there, Irene Adler looks tasty, and Watson and Holmes share some intimate, Bromance moments. Have a look at the trailer below or watch it in HD at YouTube.

Sherlock Holmes stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, and Rachel McAdams. The movie will hit U.S. theatres on December 25th, 2009. It will reportedly air in South African movie houses on January 8th 1st, 2010.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

From Terry Gilliam, the acclaimed director of the cult movies Brazil, 12 Monkeys, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, comes his latest film, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

Having made a deal with the devil, the 1,000-year-old Doctor Parnassus has gained the ability to take people beyond their imaginations. One day, the devil comes to collect on their arrangement, and the good doctor and his theatre troupe must travel through mystical parallel worlds to get back what is most dear to him.

This was final film role for the late Heath Ledger, who died a third of the way during filming. As a result his role was recast to use Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell to portray “physically transformed versions” of Ledger’s character. See the fantastical HD trailer below.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is set for a UK release on October 16th, 2009.

Sherlock Holmes, I Presume?

I like Guy Ritchie, he’s made some stonking flicks. Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch are two of my favourite; Swept Away, on the other hand was one film I wish I had never seen, kinda like that red rash on my testicles. In any case, Mr Ritchie seems to be back on wining ways with his reinvention of the enigmatic English detective, Sherlock Holmes.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have been happy to see on-and-off drug addict Robert Downey Jr playing the pipe-smoking character and nanny-bonking Jude Law playing Holmes’ assistant, Dr Watson. Check out the trailer below or go to Trailer Addict.

I was expecting a dour mystery set in the foggy alleyways of London, but this seems as action-filled as any James Bond flick. I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising considering Holmes is a masterful singlestick player, boxer, and swordsman. The movie is due out in December 2009.
