Sherlock Holmes 2 gets a new still and some scene details

Jan. 14, 2011by:

It's been awhile since we got any SHERLOCK HOLMES 2 news. Lucky for us, Hero Complex has a new still from the film as well as some plot and action sequence details.

The Hero Complex write-up starts out with a description of a scene, "On a frigid November morning, as steam rises from train engines burning fiery coal in a century-old rail depot, Sherlock Holmes is in trouble. Blood on the side of his face, hes fleeing the staccato rat-tat-tat of 19th century gunfire. Fortunately, his loyal friend Dr. Watson is at his side, as is a rifle-toting gypsy. Outside the depot, Watson and Holmes fumble with their guns to get a bead on their assailants, but the gypsy woman, Sim, beats them to it. She confidently cocks her rifle. Boom! A man falls dead. On beat, Watson and Holmes look at each other with surprise."

A couple of paragraphs down, a plot is given:

"Set in 1891 a year after the last films events the sequel shows Holmes continuing his pursuit of Professor Moriarty (played by Jared Harris), who, if the investigators instincts are correct, might be the worlds first supervillain. Watson, meanwhile, is still trying to be a good partner to his love, Mary Morstan (Kelly Reilly), while keeping Sherlock alive."

Robert Downey Jr. talked about how the latter task won't be so easy, Unlike last time, where Holmes kept getting Watson into trouble. This time Watson is getting Holmes out of trouble, and theyre both in deeper trouble than I think the audience could have imagined we could go. All manner of nastiness has just occurred.

Following the quote, another action scene description is given, "Later in the day, Downey and Law are positioned behind a cargo crate on the edge of the depot for another scene in which their characters are again under fire. A battered-looking Holmes fires his meek little pistol, but then Watson, who carries what appears to be a portable Gatling gun, dishes out an awkward volley (with the herky-jerky movement of a 1980s-era bass player). What he lacks in precision, he makes up for in bullets fired."

Sequel territory can be rather touchy, but Downey Jr. and Jude Law offer some comforting words, We have no intention of going back and patronizing people by re-covering the same ground, says Law. Look, Ive done a sequel or two now I feel like I should be in a recovery group for sequel-itis survivors. First, there is a bit of inflation. Then, you say, We have to work harder. Then you work harder, but not smarter.

Extra Tidbit: I liked the first installment and welcome the second. Anyone else feel the same?

I could see this arc reaching a trilogy

I liked the first a lot and would love to see a few more.

The first movie was very good.

But it was predictably unpredictable, for someone who has already read most of the Conan Doyle books, we need fresher ideas that can really outwit our deductions.

Really enjoyed the first one - Guy Ritchie really surprised me as I'm not generally a fan of his stuff - but Watson with a 'gattling gun'? Will definitely see this, but hope it doesn't get too 'generic action movie' on us - atmosphere and cool/intelligence is what made the first one work - hopefully they can maintain that while receiving treatment for their sequel-itis.

yep cant wait for it! i enjoyed the 1st one and love the characters and tone of the film. they did a really excellent job with the sets and creating that time period in london so i look forword to visiting that place again with the characters. as for the TV show Sherlock, yes, it is an excellent one to watch as its probably the best modern sherlock version out there. but i still want to visit the smokey 1890s london and all the sights that go with it.

First one sucked. I'll rather watch "sherlock" season 2. Awesome show and a true Holmes.

My favorite thing in the 1st one was when we would see Holmes think of what he was going to do and then we would see it executed. They only did that in the first 15 mins then it stopped. I hope they have that through out the 2nd one.





And McAdams looked great.

I'm down with another one of these but here's hoping Downey eases up on the thickness of his British accent. A lot of what he said in the first one was hard to understand.

One of my favorites from '09 looking forward to the next one, thought i'm not sure about Harris for Moriarty but hopefully it will work.

I enjoyed the first one quite a bit, and as far as the sequel goes, I'm excited to see Stephen Fry as Mycroft Holmes more than anything else.

As long as they don't fall prey to the common sequel problem of trying to over-complicate the story with excessive amounts of sub-plots (Pirates 2&3 and Iron Man 2, I'm looking at you), I'm interested.

I thought the first one was fairly entertaining, just not amazing. But it laid the groundwork for having a kick-ass sequel.

I don't get that last quote from Law. I honestly can't remember any sequels he was in. Are we sure that quote isn't from RDJ, someone help me out.

Agreed! The first one was a lot of fun. It's one of those films you keep on in the background because it's that enjoyable.
