According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Sherlock Holmes is the most frequently portrayed character in film history-at least 75 actors have played Arthur Conan Doyle's mythic detective in over 200 movies. This new Sherlock Holmes movie, inspired by the classic tales of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, promises to bring the legendary detective to life as he has never been seen before.

Set in London in the year 1891,the movie-with Robert Downey, Jr. as Holmes and Jude Law as Dr. Watson-is a contemporary twist on the Victorian crime-fighter that amps up the action to levels befitting a big budget studio production, as Holmes employs both his martial-arts skills and his famously deductive mind to foil the sinister Lord Blackwood, an occultist who claims to have black magic powers.
