Madame Tussauds Press Release:
Unsuspecting travellers at one of the UK’s busiest stations were joined by one of the world’s most famous names this morning when Sherlock Holmes came home to Baker Street.
The Holmes in question was a startlingly lifelike wax figure of Robert Downey Jr in his latest role - on a brief sojourn before taking up residence at Baker Street’s other famous name, Madame Tussauds. The figure portrays Downey Jr in the strikingly modern spirit of the much anticipated new Warner Bros film, Sherlock Holmes, premiering in London on Monday (14th December). Dressed in a replica of one of the movie costumes the figure will be featured at the world famous attraction in a set inspired by the film – complete with some very contemporary interactive twists for guests to enjoy. Robert Downey Jr as Sherlock Holmes will star at Madame Tussauds from 14th December. Sherlock Holmes opens in UK cinemas on Boxing Day.
