sherlock_holmesJoin the wild search for the ultimate clue when “Sherlock Holmes” arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD March 30 from Warner Home Video.  In this gritty, never before seen look at the London underworld, Robert Downey Jr. takes us beyond the legendary reputation of the brilliant sleuth and puts his spin on the quick-witted, bare-knuckled detective, “Sherlock Holmes”.

Sherlock Holmes, with the aid of his trusted ally Dr. John Watson, is unequaled in his pursuit of criminals. He employs his own quirky and unique (albeit at times unconventional), methods to get to the heart of a case, traveling where no one else would think to go to find what others cannot see…

But now a storm is gathering, a threat unlike anything that Holmes has ever confronted.  After a string of ritualistic murders, Holmes and Watson arrive just in time to save the latest victim and uncover the killer: Lord Blackwood. As he approaches his scheduled hanging, Blackwood warns Holmes that death has no power over him, and when that prediction comes true, London and Scotland Yard are left confounded. But to Holmes, the game is afoot. Racing to stop Blackwood’s deadly plot, Holmes and Watson plunge into a world of the dark arts and new technologies, where logic is sometimes the best crime-fighting weapon.

From Director Guy Ritchie (Snatch, RocknRolla), “Sherlock Holmes” stars Academy Award™ nominee Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man series, Chaplin, Tropic Thunder), Academy Award™ nominee Jude Law (The Talented Mr. Ripley, upcoming The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), Rachel McAdams (Wedding Crashers, The Notebook) and Mark Strong (Body of Lies, RocknRolla, Syriana).

“Sherlock Holmes” will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99 and on single disc DVD for $28.98.
