Last night the first trailer for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes hit the web and ta da! You can watch it here. It’s been a long time since Guy Ritchie made a good movie, but with Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, and Mark Strong onboard, he’s got just about the best cast you could ask for this time around. And judging by the trailer, in this incarnation, Sherlock spends as much time boxing, diving through windows, nailing chicks, and dodging explosions as he does using logic and science. I can’t wait until 10-15 years from now when another one comes out and it’s even more dumbed down. I imagine Watson demanding to know, “How do you do it, Holmes?” And then Holmes will take a massive bong rip, tap his index finger to his temple, and say, “Hella mentally, my Dear Watson. (*cough*)”
