Sherlock Holmes Poster

This photo (I’ll update with a better picture when it comes out) of the teaser poster for Sherlock Holmes has me quite surprised. This is not how I expected Sherlock to look. There is a certain edge, a certain darkness I don’t generally imagine the character having.

Then again maybe I just didn’t read the novels closely enough. Or don’t remember them well enough.

Anyways, this is the very first poster, so a lot could happen with the campaign. But right now the focus seems to be Robert Downey Jr. IS Sherlock Holmes. Which seems like fine pitch as far as I’m concerned. Several films have now been sold on top Johnny Depp playing an interesting character, and after Iron Man Downey seems to be inhabiting a similar position in the public’s consciousness.

As a matter of fact I would love if more films were sold based on great actors delivering riveting performances. That would probably mean more good movies were being made.

You can see some more ShoWest posters here, including many you have seen before, but now in the crappy photo version!

    I don’t know what it is, but something about this poster just screams “PHOTO SHOOT” to me. I mean, I know it obviously is, but I guess maybe it just doesn’t look…old enough. It’s a period piece after all, right? Too stagey – I don’t like it at all.

    I’ve said that least 2037988 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
