In the past week, we’ve been lucky enough to get the trailers for two movies that I, personally, am totally stoked to see.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Holmes and Watson are back! Joined by the Gypsy fortune teller, Sim, the friends are out to find out the truth behind the death of the Crown Prince of Austria. However, that’s just one piece of a puzzle constructed by Professor Moriarty, perhaps the only man in the world who’s as smart as Holmes, and who always seems to be one step ahead…
I LOVED Sherlock Holmes, and this one looks to be just as fun as its predecessor.
Based on the (surprisingly awesome) novels by Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs, John Carter is about a Civil War vet who mysteriously wakes up on Mars. He’s captured by the notoriously vicious Green Men of Mars, but becomes an icon among them because of his amazing fighting prowess. He then falls in love with Dejah Thoris, a princess of the Red Men of Mars who has also been captured by the green Martians, and vows to return her to her people.
It’s difficult to tell from the trailer how much of the story they’ll follow, but it’s a nice teaser for the film. I love the John Carter books, and I am really, really looking forward to seeing this on the big screen.
