Sherlock Holmes Movie

Here’s some fun stuff about the upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as Watson. As usual, let’s get right to the excellent video right away.

Kung Fu Cinema: My New Bookmark Guy Ritchie’s ‘Sherlock Holmes’ knows bartitsu is a great article about the fighting in the upcoming film. It references an article from USA Today. I enjoyed this snipped from Jude Law:

“The physicality, the bare-knuckle fighting, the martial arts are all hinted at in the books,” says Law who delved deep into Doyle’s books in preparation for his role. “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.”

I just found this site, and I’ve bookmarked it because I enjoy the writing and analysis so much.

So if you like that: the boxing, the kicks, the stick fighting, don’t miss my Bartitsu Workshop on July 26th at Academie Duello.
