Proof that the old super sleuth is alive and well eh! Yes Village Roadshow Pictures & Warner Bros follow up to the wildly successful 2009 outing SHERLOCK HOLMES has assured its franchise status as the sequel crossed $100m domestically in the U.S. yesterday. The Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law and Noomi Rapace starrer opened strongly last friday but behind MISSION IMPOSSIBLE GHOST PROTOCOL and took in a nice $28m opening weekend, but since Christmas the film has really shown legs and had the box office stirring! This is great news for the U.S. and for other territories as the film releases through January. Australia releases on January 5, 2012.
What’s even better is the Village Roadshow Pictires is a part of Village Roadshow, an Australian company – and we rock!
