New SHERLOCK HOLMES Poster

There’s a new poster for Guy Ritchie’s upcoming Sherlock Holmes film. In addition to standard shots of Robert Downey Jr. (whose head looks photoshopped on here) as Holmes and Jude Law as trusty assistant Dr. Watson, we can see co-stars Rachel McAdams (as Irene Adler) and Mark Strong (as the villainous Lord Blackwood) lurking amongst the background images.Also in the background images are a bottle of cyanide, a street lamp bearing Holmes’ legendary street address, a gun and a bulldog. (Click on the images below for a bigger view.) Do they have some significance in the story? We’ll find out when the film opens on December 25. (But, really Warner Brothers promotional depart… “Holmes For The Holidays”? That is one of the worse tag lines I’ve seen in a long while.)

Huh! The wankers pilfered TCM’s tagline used for the channel’s day long “tribute” to Holmes on Christmas Day.
