You know I'm gonna see it anyway of course. But with the Guy Ritchie, BBC, and Elementary, it seems a bit odd to release another film featuring the Sherlock Holmes character. Sure this version is a lot older (sort of reminds me of Michael Chabon's Sherlock story), and the stories are clearly popular enough for several separate iterations of them to see mainstream success. And I'm sure I'll love this one too. But I wish studios were more willing to take risks with these new adaptations. Why hasn't there been a major version of Sherlock starring a woman, and/or person of color? That seems like an easier way to innovate these stroies further.
Every time I see Sir Ian McKellen I think of this sketch:
“Sir Ian, Sir Ian, Sir Ian... SHERLOCK HOLMES!"
But now I'm wondering which Sherlock will reign supreme.
