New Sherlock Banner Online
Holmes untrousers his Mauser

Grandstand set-pieces are pretty much guaranteed in Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows but blow us down if this new banner doesn't take the prize. It's got an exploding train, for heaven's sake. Somebody call Chris Pine, Denzel and that dude in the helicopter.

We're assuming that this is the same locomotive that pops up in the trailer bearing Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and Watson (Jude Law) into the mountains where uber-nemesis Professor Moriarty lies in wait.

As well as the fox-cunning crime solver and his medical sidekick, the latest in Guy Ritchie's franchise introduces Jared Harris as Moriarty, Stephen Fry as Holmes's brother Mycroft, and Noomie Rapace as mysterious gypsy Sim.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows

Sure Sherlock had a firearm and could fight. Still, Sherlock Holme's leval of action was always closer to Sean Connery's James Bond than Rambo. There's fights and there's terrific baddies...but a huge amount of great dialogue and thinking... More

The other poster looks a hell of a lot like...
Lethal Weapon. Next time you see one on a bus stop, have a look and compare. If you're old like me and you remember 1987 and were old enough to see Mel go nuttso with Gary Busey you might agree. More

Bad Photoshop
What exactly is Holmes standing on? From the angles on this he appears to standing quite confidently on something that is overhanging the no-doubt perilous drop. Fortunately Dr Watson appears to be safe....phew! More
