Secret Password: Get it Here

OK, Sherlock Holmes fans. You have to try this new promotional website. Fill in the five boxes with the password, IRENE, and you will hear and see Warner Bros. fun video for a new Holmes movie set to open Christmas Day.

If you're a Holmes fan, you know IRENE is for Irene Adler, the woman who once tricked Sherlock into revealing the location of a valuable letter, thus impressing the famous detective to no end. Watson once wondered if Sherlock wasn't secretly in love with her.

In the new movie SHERLOCK HOLMES, directed by Guy Ritchie, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law portray Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous characters. According to the Hollywood wags, Holmes will show us martial art skills as deadly as his legendary deductions.

Rachel McAdams, Mark Strong, and Kelly Reilly co-star.

Thanks to Mystery Book News for the heads up.

I am so eagerly anticipating this film, having seen the trailer.
I love Robert Downey Jnr - SoapDish, Wonder Boys - and Guy Ritchie's HOLMES is down and dirty - a boys film with fight-club scenes and very saucy women.
Don't miss it.

Wonder Boys is one of my top three movies of all time. I can't wait for this to come out.

Yes Wonder Boys where Michael Douglas justifies his equity card.

another film around a blocked writer is Stranger Than Fiction,
Will Ferrell proves he isn't just funny, and Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman fused so well they went on to do Last Chance Harvey together.

I love movies and books to give my mind over to, so that the actual world just disappears for 90 minutes or 4 hours.
