Another high profile, previously untitled sequel has been officially given a moniker. Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes sequel is called Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows according to E! Online. No, it’s not an upcoming HBO fantasy series, it’s the sequel to the popular 2009 film starring Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Noomi Rapace, Stephen Fry and Jared Harris scheduled for released on December 16.
Leave your thoughts on the title after the jump.
I’m not sure how I feel about this new trend of not giving sequels numbers. Sherlock Holmes 2 sounded fine to me as did Mission: Impossible 4. Maybe that’s just the Eighties in me. Are you a fan of titles like “A Game of Shadows” or “Ghost Protocol?” And what can you discern about the film from this title?
