Well, here’s our first proper look at Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, the all-action, all-explosion, all-nudey new take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary detective. Investigate it for yourself here.

What does this teach us? First of all, that Ritchie wasn’t kidding about the film being much more action packed and violent than we’re used to seeing from the man in the deerstalker. Secondly, that he isn’t wearing the deerstalker, as we were told. Thirdly, that there are hints of sex appeal to keep the parents interested amid all the silly running about for the kids. Most of these appear to centre on Rachel McAdams’ corset.

Theres so much here to love, Downey Jr. is a given, Ritchies dynamic direction, the supernatural theme, and the humour, let’s not forget McAdama corset, and shockingly of all Jude Law looks fairly enjoyable and less smug than normal.

Sherlock Holmes is out here on Boxing Day, and looks like the perfect way to get your adrenalin pumping and burn off those Christmas calories.
