Sherlock Holmes vs. Dinosaurs and Robots!

Coming to DVD this week: The folks at The Asylum have a brand-new take on Sherlock Holmes, wherein the Victorian detective "faces the ultimate challenge when enormous monsters attack London." (Giant monster fans will remember The Asylum as the studio behind Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus and the King Kong-knockoff King of the Lost World.) As you can see from the poster and the trailer below, the film promises to include a giant squid, dinosaurs and/or robots.
