    Recently, Green Tea Movie invited you to preview the first two posters from the upcoming sequel to the popular period crime-solving detective Sherlock Holmes. There are two new posters for Sherlock Holmes: A Ghost of Shadows which you can view here. As I have mentioned before in the teaser poster for The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros is making use of the swarming fans and audience who will be watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 this weekend to promote their major tent-pole films. In seizing the potential marketing value, Warner Bros has released the first trailer of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows which you can view below right after the jump. The wait is paid off:

    The trailer is 146-seconds long and packed with witty action, comedic relief and wild imagination (as usual). It started when Noomi Rapace impressive performance as a fortune teller with great setup of what's coming next. Then, the rest is quite an adventure. There are parts where Holmes in drag, what appears to be a modern technique of linking convoluted cases with strings and plenty of slow-mo (make sure you come prepare for this)

    Here is the plot synopsis:
    "Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room... until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)—and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective.

    When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder—a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by one Professor Moriarty.

    Mixing business with pleasure, Holmes tracks the clues to an underground gentlemen's club, where he and his brother, Mycroft Holmes (Stephen Fry) are toasting Dr. Watson on his last night of bachelorhood. It is there that Holmes encounters Sim (Noomi Rapace), a Gypsy fortune teller, who sees more than she is telling and whose unwitting involvement in the prince's murder makes her the killer's next target. Holmes barely manages to save her life and, in return, she reluctantly agrees to help him.

    The investigation becomes ever more dangerous as it leads Holmes, Watson and Sim across the continent, from England to France to Germany and finally to Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead as he spins a web of death and destruction—all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history."

    The sequel to the 2009 first movie is once again directed by Guy Ritchie, starring Robert Downey Jr as Sherlock Holmes with Jude Law as Dr John H Watson. Together in the second outing, they are also joined by Noomi Rapace (from Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Jared Harris (whom you will remember as Robert David Jones from Fringe) as the criminal genius and Holmes' arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty. Eddie Mersan, Stephen Fry and Gilles Lellouche also star.

    Holmes: Get that out of my face
    Watson: It's not in your face, it's in my hand
    Holmes: Get what's in your hand, out of my face!
