Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Box Art

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as the world's most famous detective in a dark new international investigation. Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room... until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large -- Professor Moriarty -- and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. Holmes is hot on the trail, 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.
