Granted, an audience moments away from seeing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on opening night at New York City’s Ziegfeld is slightly excitable, but I believe the new Sherlock Holmes trailer would’ve warranted applause on any evening. It’s those final seconds and the realization that Jude Law, as Dr. Watson, is going to keep up with Robert Downey Jr.’s singular take on Holmes punch-for-punch…

The Guy Ritchie-directed movie, which hits theaters on Christmas Day, is on Daniel Radcliffe’s Must List. Is it on yours?
