Sherlock Holmes plays a Game of Shadows
Robert Downey, Jr. may be one of the busiest men in Hollywood right now. Not only has he made two Iron Man movies in the last three years, but has starred in Tropic Thunder, Due Date, and the first Sherlock Holmes film in which he played the starring role. The Avengers is currently in production with a May 2012 release. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows will open December 2011 and will probably break the Christmas Day records set by its predecessor.
