trailer break: ‘Sherlock Holmes’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

In case you got confused and thought this was the Guy Ritchie movie, it isn’t. This is the Sherlock Holmes movie with dinosaurs. And robots. And steampunk battle armor. And sea monsters. And girls with guns.

Well, that other Sherlock Holmes had girls with guns, too.

Gee, but it’s kinda funny how Asylum Entertainment’s films often somehow seem to get mistaken for other movies. Like Alien vs. Hunter, starring William Katt, which totally isn’t Alien vs. Predator. Or The Da Vinci Treasure, starring C. Thomas Howell, which — hello! — is absolutely not The Da Vinci Code. I mean, duh! Or I Am Omega, starring Mark Dacascos, which is soooo not I Am Legend that it’s not even funny. Why would people keep making such mistakes?

No one, on the other hand, mistakes Asylum’s Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus for anything other than what it is.

Anyway, this is where genre actors go when their One Big Shot dies: RIP the careers of Enterprise’s Dominic Keating and Torchwood’s Gareth David-Lloyd as Watson. We hardly knew ya. And Ben Syder: Welcome to the ass end of cinema.

Sherlock Holmes is now available on DVD in Region 1 from Amazon U.S.; it will be released on Region 1 DVD in Canada on February 23, and is available for preorder; no U.K. DVD release has been announced.

The tyrannosaur is an anachronism. In Holmes’ time it was thought that tyrannosaurs (and other dinos) walked more or less upright with their tails dragging on the ground.

That’s the only thing that stood out to me about that trailer. ZZZzzzz….

RIP the careers of… Torchwood’s Gareth David-Lloyd as Watson.”

could it possibly be one of those things that happened *before* he was well known from Torchwood? maybe it won’t affect his career much — i mean, after all, George Cooney did “Attack of the Killer Tomatos” and he managed to survive quite well.

Not according to IMDB, it’s the most recent entry on David-Lloyd’s page. And while I suppose it’s possible that this has been in production or planning or scripting or whatever for a long time, that’s not really Asylum’s MO. :(

This movie’s only redeeming value is that it motivates me to finish my writings so I can get that “Naked Cyborg Ninja vs. Somali Tech Pirates” script finished so filming on it can begin by June…

Complete with exploding penguins! Just in case we can get Michael Bay to direct.
