A multitude of new video clips, trailers, set photos and posters have leaked out over the weekend for various upcoming films, and this is your one stop to find it all.
Downey & Law, Crimefighters: First up, JustJared published photos on Friday of Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes from Guy Ritchie's upcoming action film. He added photos on Sunday of Jude Law as Watson. They both look as dashing as you might imagine, all scruffy and in their period garb.

It's a pretty safe bet that when I log on in the morning to check out recent movie news that I'll come across one or two things that make me question my sanity. Or the sanity of the movie industry. Today, I woke up to more than the usual number of head-scratchers. First up:
- According to Variety, Mike Myers has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards. Myers will play a British "military mastermind" who takes part in the Nazi-killing plans. I know Myers has played a couple of dramatic roles in the past, but I'd be less surprised if the report had Michael Myers popping up to scalp a few Nazis.
It looks like Disney's purchase of Marvel Entertainment has lit a fire under Fox. After all, they own the film rights to the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Silver Surfer and Daredevil for as long as they continue to make movies. So, now that it's been two years since the last FF movie, they're getting ready to reboot the franchise. Frankly, I'm glad. The first film was good, clean kiddie fun (except for the fact that Jessica Alba kept taking her clothes off), but the second was boring, had Mr. Fantastic stretch-dancing and managed to make Marvel's biggest (literally) villain look like a rain cloud. Fox wouldn't say what they're doing, or even if they hope to bring back the serviceable original cast, but I hope they announce reboots of the rest of their Marvel properties (and Sony's, while they're at it), because, frankly, they all need it.
