USA Today has the first official look at SHERLOCK HOLMES, which you can check out ABOVE. The film is directed by Guy Ritchie and stars Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes, Jude Law as Watson, Mark Strong as the villainous Lord Blackwood and Rachel McAdams as an old fashioned hot piece of ass. It will be an alternative take on the classic character, this time showing off his martial arts abilities and whatnot.

I'm reading this now thinking why did I say you could check the picture out ABOVE? That's obvious. Your got there before you got to the words. Who do I think is reading this? Jake Tucker from Family Guy?
Extra Tidbit: McAdams was at one point considered to play Vesper Lynd in CASINO ROYALE.

"I" didn't see the film, it was old co workers of mine who actually worked on the movie. The cut that they saw WAS unfinished. Again, from what I heard the movie didn't have a score, and many scenes were missing. My friends and I all work in the film industry. We have some pull, especially them. Again, I wasn't there, I know people who saw it (most of them worked on it).

i dont see how a test screening was possible, they are still filming...so unless what you saw didnt include major portions of the film, i find this highly unlikely...

The test screening wasn't for the general public. I work in the film industry, and so do the friends of mine who saw the (very) rough cut. The movie is far from finished, the cut that my friends saw didn't have a score, and some scenes were missing.

Test screening???

Downey was far from being "fantastic" in Iron Man, but that's just, like, my opinion, man.

But one thing's for sure though: given that the movie began shooting less than 5 months ago and opens somewhere near next winter, there couldn't be any test screenings so far. Unless they skipped the editing process entirely, or Mr. Madonna converted himself to Dogma '95.

They recently had an early test screening for people who worked on this movie. My friends worked in the locations department for Sherlock Holmes and saw a very early cut of the unfinished movie. I hear that the movie (so far) is "pretty good", but Downey is fantastic in it. I hear he steals the show kind of like he did in Iron Man.

I'm reading this script (or one of the drafts) to this film right now and I have to say it's a pretty interesting take on the character. When I imagined a Sherlock Holmes film I pictured more of a Ralph Fiennes or someone like that who would be more postured but the Holmes in this film is a restless, anxious and brilliant man who hates downtime and snaps into action without being asked. This film (if done right) will definitely surprise people.
I just hope Ritchie can get back to his

I just hope Ritchie can get back to his greatness since his last few films have been way sub par. But now that he's not with Madonna any more it stands a chance. His best films were pre madonna...he should call his production company Pre-Madonna films just to celebrate.

Rachel McAdams is playing Irene Adler, the only known Holmes villain to go toe to toe with Sherlock and be successful.

Guy Richie got 90 million dollars from Madonna and she got to keep his balls.
