Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” easily topped the domestic box office its first weekend, earning an estimated $40 million from 3,703 theaters, an average of $10,807 per theater. The opening was quite a bit down from Sherlock Homes, which debuted to $62.3 million over Christmas weekend in 2009. The sequel, which cost about $125 million to make, was directed by Guy Ritchie and stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Noomi Rapace, Jared Harris, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Fry and Rachel McAdams.

    Happy Birthday, Noomi!!

    I was extremely pleased to see Noomi in the new Sherlock Holmes film at Christmas as my Russian wife and I were dedicated fans of Conan Doyle for many years before we met and married. But it was Noomi portrayal of Lisbeth in the Millenium Trilogy films.

    When I read the trilogy in Russia I visualised her through a young English Punk Dancer friend of mine, Who has a tattoo up her arm and across her back and piercings in her ears, nose navel and tongue.

    With that formed vision Noomi portrayed and fulfilled the role brilliantly. Each film producing a strong emotional identification with her ongoing plight.

    I hope that Sieg Larson, who I read did not live to see his amazing trilogy published has been duly honored.

    I’m looking forward to the American version and Prometheus when it is release.
    Thanks for setting up this dedicated site
    Cheers or should that be Skol from Terri & Sveta in the UK
