Warner Bros. Pictures is injecting some viral into Sherlock Holmes this weekend as they've launched a new website centered around the upcoming movie. To check it out, click here. When the box display comes up asking you to "Help Find Her", type in Sherlock's love-interest "IRENE".

Once you do, a hooded man will begin talking. For now that's it along with an email sign up but with the film still being months away before it investigates theaters on Christmas Day, we're sure more viral updates are on the horizon.

It should also be noted that director Guy Ritchie recently confirmed to MTV that arch nemesis Moriarty will be making "some kind of appearance" in the film as well.

"Some kind of an appearance is probably the best way to describe it," the Holmes director said. When pressed, and asked if an actor is credited as Moriarty, Ritchie's reply was "I believe not."

The interview was conducted before the recent Brad Pitt cameo (as Mori) rumors appeared.

The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, Mark Strong, Eddie Marsan and Kelly Reilly. Ritchie helmed the production from a screenplay he co-wrote with Michael Johnson and Anthony Peckham.

Plot Concept: In a dynamic new portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous characters, "Sherlock Holmes" sends Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson on their latest challenge. Revealing fighting skills as lethal as his legendary intellect, Holmes will battle as never before to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy the country.

Sherlock Holmes will hit theaters Christmas Day 2009.

THis is stupid! Last I remeber the stories were about SH using his detective skills to firgure stuff out not about using Kungfu skills to beat up thugs! WHy don't they just change the name of this to Batgins Begins the preprepreprepreprepreprepreprequel!

Actually the original books had Holmes as way more of a cold calculating character who liked the ladies, drinking and had a thirst for action.  I like the look of the movie, can't wait til december.

Yeah, and I don't think he's exactly using "kungfu skills" from looking at the trailer.  Why wouldn't a guy that's a genius and expertly read on every subject in the freakin' world, know how to box?  This is one of the coolest figures in the last 200 years of literature and it's been a long time since he's appeared in film.  There is a ton of material here for multiple films if this does well.

Side note: The Sherlock Holmes comic by Alan Moore's daughter is pretty entertaining as well and everyone should definitely check it out.
