New posters for the action-adventure starring Robert Downey, Jr. as the titular sleuth have begun to be plastered around Los Angeles. These new ads are longer vertically than the typical posters, perfect for plastering on columns and showing off the film's characters in all their period glory.

The film opens Christmas Day and co-stars Jude Law as a mustachioed Dr. Watson, Rachel McAdams as the clever Irene Adler and Mark Strong as the menacing Lord Blackwood.

Did we mention we can't wait?

Check out the simple, but effective posters:
