The first trailer for the sequel to 2009’s Sherlock Holmes has arrived. Returning Guy Ritchie as director and Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law to their lead roles, the film finds Holmes and Watson trying to take down Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) who appeared briefly at the end of the original. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is slated to release on December 16th.

Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room…until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large –Professor Moriarty –and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective.
