‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ to hit theatres in 2021
‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ has been pushed back a year and will now hit theatres on December 21, 2021.
Warner Bros. had originally announced last May that ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ would open on Chirstmas Day of 2020 with Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as the titular British detective while Jude Law will essay the role of his sidekick, Dr. Watson, reported Variety.
‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ will open a decade after the second film ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,’ which also starred Jared Harris and Noomi Rapace, took in USD 545.4 million at the worldwide box office.
The announcement was made on Monday by Warner Bros. who said that an untitled event film would go into the same Christmas 2020 slot. Notably, James Cameron’s ‘Avatar 2’ is scheduled to open on December 18, 2020, followed by ‘Sing 2’ on Christmas Day.
