Sherlock Holmes as an action star?

I grew up reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and still have fond memories of seeing t he sun come up as I turned the last few pages of many of the classic tales. There has been many a movie and television rendition of Sherlock Holmes through the years but none of them – that I remember – ever depicted my childhood hero as an action star.

That could very well change with the upcoming release of of Guy Ritchie’s re-imaging of the character. While we won’t be seeing the movie until Christmas Day has the freshly minted two minute long television trailer up. Thanks to the wonders of embedding and their kindness in sharing here is your first good look at what might be in store for us and I gotta tell you I am now really looking forward to this movie.
