With just over a week left until their blockbuster film's sequel swings into theaters, the stars of Warner Bros. Pictures' "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows" joined together in London, England on Thursday (December 8) for the UK red carpet premiere.

Held at Leicester Square, director Guy Ritchie was accompanied by his lovely lady Jacqui Ainsley while flanked by cast members including Jude Law, Robert Downey Jr, Noomi Rapace and Jared Harris.

Also starring Rachel McAdams, the Ritchie helmed project is set for a December 16th release while seeing Downey Jr and Law teaming up against criminal mastermind Professor Moriarty as they investigate the death of the Crown Prince of Austria.

Talking about the decision to offer up a second round of "Sherlock Holmes," Guy told press, “I wanted to make another one for all sorts of reason, but in no small part [it was] because of the chemistry between these two lads (Robert and Jude). That’s the engine that drives the narrative. Plus, it’s fun watching them."
