MANILA, Philippines — Where in the world are the missing gnomes?

Based on the newly released poster of Hollywood movie “Sherlock Gnomes,” they are in the Philippines, traveling aboard the iconic Filipino “jeepney” somewhere in Bohol.

In “Sherlock Gnomes,” the beloved garden gnomes from Gnomeo and Juliet are back for a whole new adventure in London.

When Gnomeo and Juliet first arrive in the city with their friends and family, their biggest concern is getting their new garden ready for spring. They, however, soon discover that someone is kidnapping garden gnomes all over London. When Gnomeo and Juliet return home to find that everyone in their garden is missing – there is only one gnome to call: Sherlock Gnomes.

The famous detective and sworn protector of London’s garden gnomes arrives with his sidekick Watson to investigate the case. The mystery will lead the gnomes on a rollicking adventure, where they will meet all new ornaments and explore an undiscovered side of the city.

This action-packed sequel features the voices of returning cast, James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Maggie Smith, Stephen Merchant and Ozzy Osbourne, plus Johnny Depp as Sherlock Gnomes, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Watson and Mary J. Blige as Irene.

“Sherlock Gnomes” is based on characters by Rob Sprackling, John Smith, Andy Riley, Kevin Cecil, Keely Asbury, and Steve Hamilton Shaw. The story is by Andy Riley, Kevin Cecil, Emily Dee Cook and Kathy Greenberg, while Ben Zazove wrote the screenplay. John Stevenson serves as director.

“Sherlock Gnomes” opens in the Philippines on March 21 and is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
