The trailer for the new movie was recently released online and shows a scene where Holmes is dressed as a woman - a hasty but necessary disguise for the famed detective.

The film is set for release on Dec. 16, 2011. Jared Harris plays the villain Professor Moriarty in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," while Noomi Rapace of the 2009 Swedish movie "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" plays a Gypsy fortune teller named Sim.

In the film, Holmes investigates the death of the Crown Prince of Austria and teams up with Sim, who may be the next target of the suspected killer. The two travel the world to try and stop Moriarty, who is trying to carry out another one of his evil plans.

Rachel McAdams reprises her role as Holmes' love interest, Irene Adler, although from the looks of the trailer, she appears to have some competition.
