Guy Ritchie's upcoming sequel to Sherlock Holmes, subtitled A Game of Shadows is coming out in December of this year. And in order to promote this event, Warner Bros. has released a couple of posters, each featuring a close-up of one of the two main characters, which you can see below. One features Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock himself, and the other has Jude Law as his dependable sidekick Watson. Jared Harris as archvillain Moriarty and Noomi Rapace as "Slim" can also be seen in the background.

These posters are pretty cool, if conventional. And, surprise, they're very reminiscent of the posters for the first Sherlock Holmes movie. As Sherlock once said to Watson: "My dear Watson, if it isn't broken, then why endeavor upon fixing it?" (Yahoo!)
