Set in 1891, the film revolves around Holmes and Watson stopping a conspiracy to destroy Britain. The film opens with Holmes apprehending the murderous cult leader Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong), who promises he will return from the dead and exact his revenge as he is being led to the gallows. If Downey Jr. gives half the performance he gave in Iron Man, it will still be a great movie. I can't help but think this is going to be a box office winner.
Along with Robert Downey Jr., The film also stars Jude Law and Rachel McAdams and is slated to open on Christmas Day. The video below is a visit by Entertainment Tonight on the set of the film.
