Holiday Weekend Box Office: 2011 Goes Out A Loser Holiday Weekend Box Office: 2011 Goes Out A Loser
The box office got a boost as 2011 departed and 2012 arrived. Sales were up considerably from last weekend's Christmas holiday and the new year is off to a solid start. But despite those bits of good news, overall 2011 was anything but a banner year for ticket sales....

After a slow start for movies opening early on Wednesday, the Christmas holiday rallied a bit into Monday. Overall, box office results were slightly higher than the same four day holiday weekend last year, but that's small consolation for an industry that saw a major ticket sale backslide in 2011....

Weekend Box Office: Holmes and Chipmunks Get Christmas Coal Weekend Box Office: Holmes and Chipmunks Get Christmas Coal
'Tis the season to see sequels. But this season the sequels aren't being seen by very many. Hollywood's Christmas 2011 continues to disappoint at the box office. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows took first place this weekend, but there wasn't much to celebrate. With only $40 million it dropped well below the $62 million its predecessor banked two Christmases ago. ...

Robert Downey Jr. Talks Cross-Dressing As Sherlock Holmes Robert Downey Jr. Talks Cross-Dressing As Sherlock Holmes
The idea of Robert Downey Jr. making things up as he goes along on a film set isn’t anything new. In 2009, Jeff Bridges was quoted saying that on the production of Iron Man he, Downey Jr. and director Jon Favreau would only figure out how a scene would play out right before shooting it. Seeing how well that project ended up, it’s no surprise that Downey Jr. would employ the approach in his other films as well. For example, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows....

As noted by star Robert Downey Jr. as he accepted his third Golden Globe in 2010, nobody thought that Sherlock Holmes was going to be able to succeed while going up against James Cameron's Avatar, but everyone was proven wrong. While Avatar did go on to shatter box office records globally, the 2009 Guy Ritchie film not only managed to win over critics, but earned over $200 million domestically on a $90 million budget....

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows Gets A Frenetic Second Trailer Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows Gets A Frenetic Second Trailer
We all know that Sherlock Holmes movies, as envisioned by Guy Ritchie, will contain insane action and occasional use of slo-mo and a lot of Victorian settings blown to smithereens. But why lean so heavily on that and leave out most of the humor? It's the repartee between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, not the glitzy modern action, that makes these movies worthwhile, but this trailer makes the sequel seem even more over-the-top than the original...

When I think about Sherlock Holmes, a few things spring to mind: Deerstalker hats, calabash pipes, and astounding intellect. While the character did carry a pistol, it was rarely used, as the character would more often than not participate in hand-to-hand. From the look of the two new posters for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, the sequel to Guy Ritchie's 2009 winter blockbuster......

It's a behind-the-scenes shot that shows Harris reading his script, so it's hard to get a sense of what exactly happens in the scene, but it seems safe to assume this confrontation won't end all that happily. The other two new images included both Jude Law as Dr. Watson and Noomi Rapace as the mystery gypsy woman Sim ...

Sherlock Holmes was easily one of the biggest surprises of winter 2009.

Now the only question that remains is which title is dumber: Transformers: Dark of the Moon or Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. I suppose that the strategy here is to try and prevent people from realizing that they're seeing the 20,o00th sequel of the year, but I would have been more than happy to see this film titled Sherlock Holmes 2....
