We are the pulp villains!

Ah, once again Freemasons take the role of nefarious villains, what with our devious rituals and shadowy society. Yes, yes. This time around it is a pretty big production of Sherlock Holmes by Guy Ritchie, with the titular character played by Robert Downey, Jr and Jude Law as Doctor Watson. The pacing is little different from what you may remember, and I am certain Sir Arthur Conan Doyle will be spinning in his grave, but I am a fan of Downey, and it could be good fun.

The attached images are from the first trailer. First is the obligatory, campy satanic ritual. Next one you see what appears to be the same person, who was blindfolded earlier, now standing – this is shot on location in Freemasons Hall, London. Last one I think is from one of the lodge rooms, but I am not 100% certain. No mention of freemasons, though, so these guys may just be your archetypical, run-of-the-mill secret society, we’ll see.
