It's time for a brand new issue once again, and this month we have an exclusive shot of Mr. Guy Richie's slickly styled Sherlock Holmes emblazoned on our cover.

Looking at the movie as part of our Smoking Hot Preview, we chatted to the steely-stared Sherlock, Robert Downey Jr., and Jude Law, who steps into the well-heeled shoes of his trusty side-kick Dr. Watson.

Unable to give away too much of the plot, the pair reveal a hint of what could be involved when Empire asks about the Victorian setting feeling surprisingly modern: "Everything was about to pop into the next realm, into... well you could call it the 20th century. But the way it really worked out is that everything was verging on this big expansion of information and technology... That's in the film too; the presence of that, and the harnessing of that. That's what their mission is about."
