Relive the explosive action, intrigue and electric cast chemistry of this year’s must-have blockbuster adventure, Sherlock Holmes – released on two disc Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy combi pack and DVD on 19th April.

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).

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.

Holmes, with the aid of his trusted ally Dr. John Watson, is unequalled 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, travelling 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.

Featuring thrilling action, sensational special effects and memorable performances from the winning cast, Sherlock Holmes is THE ultimate action-adventure and a must-own film you’ll want to add to your collection this spring. The two disc combi-pack offers the flexibility to enjoy Sherlock Holmes on multiple platforms, so whether you have a PS3, Blu-ray player or computer the combi pack will ensure a copy of Sherlock Holmes is accessible to all.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray disc is an immersive Maximum Movie Mode feature, which includes walk-ons by Guy Ritchie, eight focus points, 60 minutes of Picture-in-Picture commentary and BD-Live connectivity.
