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. It's a cut above a lot of the movie swag you'll see. One lucky winner will win everything you see below:
Letterpress stationery in metal box
Mini vented umbrella
American Apparel unisex long-sleeve T-shirt
Grey wool ivy cap
Sticky notes in case with magnet closure
Gameloft gift card for the Sherlock Holmes mobile game
Leather magnifying piece

Two runners-up will win everything you see above except for the backpack, stationery and umbrella. How do you enter?
