Filmmaker Guy Ritchie (“Sherlock Holmes”) returns to direct “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” which stars two-time Academy Award® nominees Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man” films) and Jude Law (“Contagion”) along with Rachel McAdams (“The Notebook”), Kelly Reilly (“Sherlock Holmes”), Eddie Marsan (“War Horse”), Geraldine James (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), Jared Harris (TV’s “Mad Men”), Stephen Fry (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”), and Noomi Rapace (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”).
“Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”will be available on Blu-ray™ and DVD in video stores nationwide.
Around the globe, headlines break the news: a scandal takes down an Indian cotton tycoon; a Chinese opium trader dies of an apparent overdose; bombings in Strasbourg and Vienna; the death of an American steel magnate… no one sees the connective thread between these seemingly random events—no one, that is, except the great Sherlock Holmes, who has discerned a deliberate web of death and destruction. At its center sits a singularly sinister spider: Moriarty.
Holmes’ investigation into Moriarty’s plot becomes more dangerous as it leads him and Watson out of London to France, Germany and finally Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead, and moving perilously close to completing his ominous plan. If he succeeds, it will not only bring him immense wealth and power but alter the course of history.
“Awe-inspiring action and razor-sharp humor.
This is why we go to the movies!”
-Jake Hamilton, Fox-TV
