Rollicking fight scenes. Sexual innuendo. Witty repartee. Mystery. The new trailer for Sherlock Holmes has it all.

In the upcoming flick, directed Guy Ritchie, Robert Downey Jr. plays Holmes as a brilliant, feisty – and ripped – detective on a mission to save England from his nemesis played by Mark Strong.

“Tomorrow, the world as you know it … will end,” says a foreboding voice over from Strong.

“Well, there isn’t any time to waste then,” quips Holmes before leaping out a window.

Together, Holmes and his loyal colleague Watson (Jude Law) embark on a wild ride to thwart the evil plan.

The movie, also starring Rachel McAdams, hits theaters Christmas Day.
