Trailer Alert: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

The game's afoot in this teaser for the sequel to the surprisingly good 2009 Guy Ritchie film.

I felt Ritchie's take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective was closer in tone and character to the original stories. And I loved the pairing of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. In fact, I can't watch the equally brilliant BBC series Sherlock without seeing Downey Jr.'s influence of the character.

Here we've got a glimpse at the story we've been waiting for: Holmes versus his arch rival Moriarty. And there's original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Noomi Rapace and a bunch of fun looking action scenes. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is scheduled for release in December and, given my enjoyment of the first film, I could venture to a theatre to see it.

But check out the trailer below and judge for yourself.
