Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock Holmes, plus Planetary and news on a Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde film
And the trailer,
I think that it looks good. :)
EDIT: Ok, maybe I should explain so I don't have to repeat myself.
The film does have action in it, but it's only using the things that are referenced in the books.
This is only the trailer, so they have to focus on the more visually exciting pieces of the film to attract viewers.
Also regarding the hat, the stereotypical clothing worn by Holmes, deerstalker etc. are normally clothes worn by people who were out in the country. So him wearing widebrimmed hats and that are possibly what he was intended to wear, the illustrators possibly just wanted him to look more distinctive/ copied the design from a story with a rural setting.
In semi-related news, Keanu Reeves is set to play Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde,
Downey is a competant actor who has shown in films such as Chaplin that he can do an English accent, yell about this instead if you want to yell about miscasting.
