Here is one of a number of shots that seems to have been lifted pretty faithfully from The Crab With The Golden Claws.

The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham's Treasure are a matched pair, covering the same story, but the jigs that we're spotting in this trailer suggest that the Macguffin in Claws (opium smuggling) might have been dropped in favour of a plot that's all about Rackham's Treasure.
