Moriarty, Mycroft & Marriage: New Pics From 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows'

Our expectations were low, but when we finally sat down with a tub of popcorn and an ungodly amount of cola to watch Guy Ritchie's amped up "Sherlock Holmes," it was a pleasant surprise. Energetic and witty, the film was powered by the charming onscreen pair of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, quarelling like an old married couple. Meanwhile, behind the camera, Ritchie continued to show his deft flair for action sequences and kept the movie rolling along at a merry pace. High art? No. But as some entertainment in the midst of the furrowed brow awards season, it delivered in spades. Well Holmes and Watson are back for "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows" and they have some new pals with them this time around.

A boatload of new pics for the movie have dropped, and while this isn't all of them, they are the best of the bunch. The new flick expands the roster to include Jared Harris (as Moriarty), Stephen Fry (as Holmes' bro Mycroft) and Noomi Rapace (as a gypsy), with Rachel McAdams reprising her role as Irene, as our heroes race around Europe to defeat their arch nemesis. Get a closer peek at everyone in the pics below, which offer up a pretty thorough overview of the film. And when you get to the end, there's a brand new poster courtesy of Yahoo.

"Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows" opens on December 16th.
