I have added a bunch of Sherlock Holmes on the set photos. They are not new but still they are worth seeing. Some shots of Dr. Watson are really great!
I added a new Behind The Scenes video from the set of Sherlock Holmes. Mostly these are short interviews of Jude, Rachel and Robert. In order to watch the video click the thumb below.
I have also made a summary of what we know about ‘Sherlock Holmes’ to this moment. You can read it here.
Jude Law’s Hamlet concludes the Donmar West End season at Wyndham’s Theatre (0844 482 5120, 29 May-22 August). Is Law destined to be or not to be another David Tennant? One thing’s for sure, with Michael Grandage directing and Law on top form, this is bound to be a Hamlet to remember. Incidentally, with the credit crunch in mind, the top-price ticket is £32.50, with over 130 tickets per performance at the lowest ticket price of £10.
Jude Law, Alan Rickman and Colin Firth will head an all-star tribute to playwright Harold Pinter next month. The National Theatre is to host the public celebration on 7 June which will include excerpts and readings from his work.
The East End writer died in December aged 78 from liver cancer. But his legacy is to be remembered by actors including Law, who is to perform part of The Lover, and Michael Sheen, who is to appear in Betrayal.
Ian Rickson, who directed Pinter in his last appearance as an actor, is working with Lady Antonia Fraser, Pinter’s widow, on the programme. He said: “There has been an enormous enthusiasm by the theatre community to celebrate his brilliance in a way that is defiant and rousing.”
The global economy may be in meltdown mode, but the world’s premier movie showcase has rarely looked so vibrant. The mega-yachts are at hand and palaces along the seafront are booked out for A-listers like Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt and Jude Law. The late Heath Ledger’s unfinished stint in Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” is guaranteed to create a festival buzz. “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” is a fantasy film about an extraordinary traveling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Although the festival chose it as an out-of-competition title, filmmakers and U.S. sales rep Cinetic Media have opted to try to sell the film before the fest, which begins May 13.
Jude Law, who plays Dr Watson in the new Sherlock Holmes movie, has explained the film’s different portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic characters.
Guy Ritchie’s film shows Holmes and Watson catching crooks with bare-fisted boxing, sword-fighting and martial arts. Holmes retains his traditional traits of sleuthing and disguises, but no longer snorts cocaine – in order to gain a family-friendly rating.
Law, who read Conan Doyle’s works in preparation for his role, defended the changes. He told us, “The physicality, the bare-knuckle fighting, the martial arts are all hinted at in the books. We just hold a magnifying glass over them. “A word that Conan Doyle uses an awful lot is ‘apprehended.’ As in, ‘Holmes and Watson apprehend the villain.’ We get to show the apprehension.”
The first trailer for the film is expected to be attached to Terminator Salvation, with the film itself due out on December 25.
Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey, Jr. as the world’s greatest detective and Jude Law who makes a terrific Dr. Watson, doesn’t open for a few more months (it opens Christmas 2009), but we’ve got some great new photos for you today.
