Just in time for Christmas, a new movie about revered author Arthur Conan Doyle’s famed sleuth of London is set to hit the big screen. Directed by Guy Ritchie, the film stars Robert Downey Jr. as the titular detective, Jude Law as his colleague Dr. Watson and Rachel McAdams as Holmes’ former flame Irene Adler.

Robert Downey Jr. has been red-hot since 2008’s Iron Man, even earning an Oscar nomination for his inspired performance in Tropic Thunder, and the preview for Iron Man 2 is generating serious interest well in advance of its May 7, 2010 release date. So, given his recent success with critics and at the box office, we expect his role as the British investigator to be delivered with a similar level of enthusiasm.
