Trailer Friday! Sherlock Holmes, Bruno, 9!

Yes, I know it's nice and sunny outside and you're probably thinking of a post-work pint. Meantime, I've briefly taken time out from putting together the next issue of UNCUT to scour the Internet for the best new trailers. And here's 3 I thought might take your fancy.
