“Tomorrow, the world as you know it … will end,” says a foreboding voice over from Strong.

“Well, there isn’t any time to waste then,” quips Holmes before leaping out a window.

Together, Holmes and his loyal colleague Watson (Jude Law) embark on a wild ride to thwart the evil plan.

The movie, also starring Rachel McAdams, hits theaters Christmas Day.
