Total Film brings you lots of bang for your buck this month, kicking off with our Sherlock special – the comprehensive guide to Conan Doyle’s super sleuth. We’ve bagged unlimited access to Guy Ritchie’s sequel, A Game Of Shadows, including interviews with stars Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Noomi Rapace and Jared Harris. Noomi Rapace felt like she was in “prison” while filming ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’. The actress plays the role of Sim in the Victorian-set Guy Ritchie-directed sequel starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, and she admits she struggled wearing a corset as it was very restrictive. She told Total Film magazine: “The corset is the worst thing! You can’t really bend over, it feels like a prison, you can’t do anything and it’s painful. One day I was supposed to run, fall over, do a roll on the floor, stand up, grab a knife in my shoe and throw it. I was like, ‘F**k! I just want to cut this hair and have trousers and, like, come on!’ ” However she admits she had no problem fitting in on the set of the film because the male-led set were very friendly. She added: “It was actually very easy to come into their little group of boys. They were very open and they really invited me into the conversation and onto the journey they’ve been on since day one.”
