Lewis had his Clark.

Murtaugh had his Riggs.

Robbo had his Mike D.

And now the greatest bromance of early 21st century cinema returns to the big screen.

That’s right. Downey Jr has his Law which means Holmes and Watson are back in Warner Bros new movie Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. The film reunites the crime-fighting guy pals and this time pits them against Sir Arthur’s most villainous creation: The scheming Professor James Moriarty!

The rabble won’t get to see the movie until the 16th, but we’ve got passes to let you see it three days early…and for FREE! We’ve got 25 passes for two to a screening on December 13th at 7:00pm the Emagine Theater in Royal Oak!

Movie Info

Synopsis: Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room…until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)—and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. Holmes’ investigation into Moriarty’s plot becomes ever more dangerous as it leads him and Watson out of London and across Europe, to France, Germany and finally to Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead as he spins a web of death and destruction—all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.

Guy Ritchie  directs a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Noomi Rapace, Jared Harris, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Fry and Rachel McAdams

In theaters on December 16.
