Warner Bros. 2011 Preview: First Looks at ‘Sherlock Holmes 2,’ ‘The Hangover 2’ and ‘Final Destination 5’

ON

Warner Bros. just sent over a MASSIVE batch of preview images and information for their upcoming 2011 slate and I am just now going through it and piecing everything together to show you. However, as I am going along I will be putting together the preview in pieces and I thought the only obvious place to start was with all of the sequels including The Hangover Part II, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, Final Destination 5, Happy Feet 2, Sherlock Holmes II and Journey 2: Mysterious Island.

Featured below is a teaser image from each film, the release date, a cast list, the director, synopsis and a link to look at the gallery of images sent over. Each link opens in a new window so once you are done just close it and you’ll return to this article.

Have fun and stay tuned as I will have more for you very shortly.
