Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows Trailer and Synopsis

Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. Watson join forces to outwit and bring down their fiercest adversary, Professor Moriarty. Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room… until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)—and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder—a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by one Professor Moriarty.

Mixing business with pleasure, Holmes tracks the clues to an underground gentlemen’s club, where he and his brother, Mycroft Holmes (Stephen Fry) are toasting Dr. Watson on his last night of bachelorhood. It is there that Holmes encounters Sim (Noomi Rapace), a Gypsy fortune teller, who sees more than she is telling and whose unwitting involvement in the prince’s murder makes her the killer’s next target. Holmes barely manages to save her life and, in return, she reluctantly agrees to help him. The investigation becomes ever more dangerous as it leads Holmes, Watson and Sim across the continent, from England to France to Germany and finally to Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead as he spins a web of death and destruction—all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.

A much-coveted role of Moriarty was to go  with Brad Pitt but eventually went to Jared Harris. Thankfully The film won’t be shot or converted into 3D.  Also this will be a standalone movie, meaning that you won’t need to have seen Sherlock Holmes to understand proceedings but Game of Shadows commences several months after the events of the first film. The film will be influenced by ‘The Final Problem’ as well as several other Conan-Doyle stories, but won’t be a direct adaptation, with the plot entirely original said director Guy Ritchie . I would say Robert Downey Jr. , Jude Law and Guy Ritchie are back in style. Check the trailer here-
