The Sherlock Holmes Movie starring Robert Downey Junior and Jude Law is coming out on Christmas Day and I for one am rather excited for many reasons.
As a child, I would doodle images of Silver Blaze or the Blue Carbuncle on notepads and show them off to my mother (who would then show them off to everyone she knew). As the daughter of the President of the Sherlock Holmes society it all pretty much came with the territory.
It did take me a while to realize that the game wasn’t actually a foot and that I should never refer to Holmes as a fictional character when my mother was around, however it was always fun to read the stories and to be a part of something she was truly passionate about.
Thanks to some of my fabulous connections, I have some passes to the movie‘s Vancouver premiere on December 21st. First dibs went to my mother’s club so that they can all weigh in on the new story and how well these actors portray their dear friends, Holmes & Watson. I am giving away the rest through my site, to a group of readers who would like to attend.
If you would like to be entered to win a double pass to the premiere screening of this Guy Ritchie film Monday December 21st, please leave a comment on this post and I’ll draw a group of winners on Thursday.
Update: Golden Globe nominations came out today and Robert Downey Jr is up for Best Performance by an Actor in a Musical or Comedy for this film!
Update: I have an abundance of movie posters! Each winner can select a Holmes or Watson (Robert Downey Jr or Jude Law) poster as well.
Update: December 17, 2009 — The contest is now closed and the winners have been announced in the video below:
Three double movie passes are available. I will contact the winners by 10am on Thursday to arrange pick up or a meeting time prior to the start of the film on Monday. Please arrive early to the film as premieres usually fill up very quickly. If I draw your name and you cannot attend, another name will be drawn from the list of entries.
