Filming Sherlock Holmes II in Strasbourg, director Guy Ritchie watches intently as hundreds of actors, technicians and stuntmen work to create the stunning scene.
The sequel to the 2009 hit film will once again star Robert Downey Jr as the great detective and Jude Law as his trusted companion, Dr Watson, and is plainly sparing no expense, using 250 extras in period costume in the French city, together with some 220 actors and technicians.
|Blast: The explosion forces the men from their seats under a banner proclaiming the 20th anniversary of Alsace-Lorraine, and causes chaos in the crowd|
|Force: The stuntmen crash into the extras, who flee in panic|
|Terror: The explosion has lifted the men several feet into the air|
|Phew: But thankfully the stuntmen know they're going to have a soft landing on blue mats, after training on the set before shooting the scene|
