50 Upcoming Movie Sequels (Yep, 50)

Army of Darkness Universal

Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »

Robert Downey Jr.'s 9 Finest Movie Roles

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Warner Bros.

How does one not love Robert Downey Jr.? Yes, you can seem like a real iconoclast by complaining about his almost constant presence in blockbusters, but why would you want to? His quick wit, his casual good looks (those chocolate-drop eyes? Mmm), his dedication to his roles, his defeat of drug addiction, and his determined climb back onto the A-list are all good reasons to be a fan. Rolling your eyes at his Marvel career feels like jousting at a windmill. Let Downey have his moment.

Oh, why are we downplaying this? The "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" star is a man of many iconic moments, and we here at NextMovie have rounded up nine of his best roles. It's not easy to pick just nine (have you seen "Zodiac"?), but making hard choices is what we do best. We're like Iron Man that way. Get More »

Next Factor: 'Sherlock Holmes' Star Noomi Rapace

Swedish actress Noomi Rapace first dazzled American audiences with her riveting portrayal of punk hacker Lisbeth Salander in the original film adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling Millennium Trilogy (including "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"). All cheekbones and attitude, the black-lipsticked Salander -- and the woman who played her -- caught Hollywood’s jaded eye. Starting Dec. 16, Rapace stars alongside Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows." Not bad for an actress who only learned English three years ago. Get More »

Rachel McAdams' Return to 'Sherlock Holmes' Remains a Mystery

Holmes and Watson are back for more. But what about Irene Adler?

Production on "Sherlock Holmes 2" has been underway for more than a month, but there's been no sign of Rachel McAdams on set. Will Holmes' occasional love interest and rival appear in the sequel?

Noomi Rapace of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is playing the sequel's female lead, so if McAdams' character does indeed show up to complicate matters further for the eccentric detective, it will probably be little more than a cameo appearance at this point.

The thing is, not even McAdams herself has a clue. Head over to MTV News for the full scoop.

Rachel's new movie, "Morning Glory," is now in theaters.

'Sherlock Holmes 2' Gets a Mad Man, Er, Villain

From out of the shadows he emerges, one of the most sinister criminal masterminds in all of recorded history. His mind: extraordinary. His willpower: unmatchable. His depravity: legendary. And his name? Lane Pryce from "Mad Men."

Okay, we know what you're thinking -- sure, Lane is kind of a pushover, and that whole getting everyone fired on purpose scheme was pretty clever, but we're not sure "criminal mastermind" really fits. But it does now, because, according to Latino Review, the man behind the Coke-bottle glasses, actor Jared Harris, has just been cast as Professor Moriarty in "Sherlock Holmes 2." Get More »

Ever since Noomi Rapace vaulted to international superstardom as Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish adaptations of Steig Larsson's red hot  thriller "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and its sequels, the big mystery hasn't been whether she would make the jump to Hollywood films but rather just what role she would land when she did. Now we know the answer and, like most mysteries, solving it was elementary.

You can put this in your big curved pipe and smoke it: according to the Hollywood Reporter, Rapace has signed on to appear in the upcoming sequel to "Sherlock Holmes" opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Get More »
