Giveaway: Solve Mysteries With Tons Of Sherlock Holmes Swag image
There's a decent chance you grew up with Sherlock Holmes, with his iconic catchphrases and pipes and hats, and his wit that always trumped mere brawn or money. This Christmas Sherlock Holmes is back, and while he may not look exactly like the character we all remember, as played by Robert Downey Jr. he's just as debonair and brilliant as ever.

In Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes, Downey Jr. and Jude Law star as the classic team of Holmes and Watson, on the case of a mysterious series of killings in London, all linked to the devious Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong), who wants to use mysticism to gain control of London, and then the world. The movie flies by in a series of immaculately staged action setpieces and Holmes and Watson's constant bantering-- I do not exaggerate when I say it's the most entertaining movie I've seen all year.

To celebrate Sherlock Holmes, in theaters December 25th, we're giving away all kinds of awesome Holmes-related swag. Not only are the prizes totally awesome-- trust me, you want a copy of this soundtrack-- but a lot of the gear is emblazoned with the very subtle "221b," which we all know is the Holmes's famous address.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS

Sherlock Holmes has made his reputation finding the truth at the heart of the most complex mysteries. With the aid of Dr. John Watson, his trusted ally, the renowned “consulting detective” is unequaled in his pursuit of criminals of every stripe, whether relying on his singular powers of observation, his remarkable deductive skills, or the blunt force of his fists.

But now a storm is gathering over London, a threat unlike anything that Holmes has ever confronted…and just the challenge he’s looking for.

After a string of brutal, ritualistic murders, Holmes and Watson arrive just in time to save the latest victim and uncover the killer: the unrepentant Lord Blackwood. As he approaches his scheduled hanging, Blackwood—who has terrorized inmates and jailers alike with his seeming connection to dark and powerful forces—warns Holmes that death has no power over him and, in fact, his execution plays right into Blackwood’s plans.

And when, by all indications, Blackwood makes good on his promise, his apparent resurrection panics London and confounds Scotland Yard. But to Holmes, the game is afoot.

Racing to stop Blackwood’s deadly plot, Holmes and Watson plunge into a world of the dark arts and startling new technologies, where logic is sometimes the best crime-fighting weapon…but where a good right hook will often do the job.

In a dynamic new portrayal of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous character, Robert Downey Jr. plays the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes. Revealing fighting skills as powerful as his famous intellect, Holmes employs his own unique methods to get to the heart of a case, traveling where no one else would think to go to find what others cannot see.

Jude Law portrays Watson, Holmes’s longtime colleague, who is joining him in what may be their last case before the doctor starts a new life as a married man. Rachel McAdams is Irene Adler, a woman from America, who is as alluring as she is dangerous, and whose tempestuous relationship with the detective has become the one puzzle he cannot solve. Mark Strong plays Lord Blackwood, whose own intellect, combined with merciless ambition, makes him a formidable adversary. Eddie Marsan appears as Scotland Yard’s Inspector Lestrade, who is both impressed and frustrated by the great Sherlock Holmes.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Silver Pictures Production, in association with Wigram Productions, a Guy Ritchie Film, “Sherlock Holmes.” Ritchie directed the film from a screenplay by Michael Robert Johnson and Anthony Peckham and Simon Kinberg, screen story by Lionel Wigram and Michael Robert Johnson. Joel Silver, Lionel Wigram, Susan Downey and Dan Lin produced the film, with Michael Tadross and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers and Steve Clark-Hall co-producing.

The accomplished behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar®-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot (“A River Runs Through It”), Oscar®-nominated production designer Sarah Greenwood (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”), editor James Herbert (“RocknRolla”), and Oscar®-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (“A Room With a View”). The music is by Oscar® winner and multiple Oscar®-nominated composer Hans Zimmer (“The Lion King,” “Gladiator”).

“Sherlock Holmes” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures. The film has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of violence and action, some startling images and a scene of suggestive material.
