Subtitle Sherlock.Holmes:.A.Game.of.Shadows.201...

A Game of Shadows. There's no tagline? Maybe the subtitle speaks for itself. Warner Bros has debuted via Yahoo the final poster for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, his follow-up to the last Sherlock Holmes stylish revamped adventure. Robert Downey Jr. stars as Holmes, with Jude Law as Dr. Watson, both seen posing on this particular poster in an alleyway. Unlike the last few posters that have been facial close-ups, this one has them both standing ominously distant from the center of the poster, which I actually like. There is an air of mystery to this, especially with Moriarty's shadow, I quite like it. See below!

A metaphor has been a conflict in subtitling for its cultural-specific sense and challenging translatability. Consequently, the translators tend to omit the metaphors. This study attempts to find out the categories of conceptual metaphors and applied strategies in the subtitles of Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows (2011). This study applies the Combined Strategies proposed by Lindqvist (Pedersen, 2015). The results indicate that analogy, personification, and image metaphors appear in the movie. The translator applies five of nine proposed strategies in this study. The most frequently applied strategies are word-for-word translation and paraphrase strategies. No omission occurs, but the study discovers that the translation appears to be less natural and fails to transfer the cultural essence from the English metaphors.
