Oscar nominated actress and Grammy winning singer Mary J. Blige is hitting the big screen again but this time as the sassy siren “Irene Adler” in the new animated film Sherlock Gnomes. The film also features the voices of Chiwetel Ejiofor and Emily Blunt and opens in theaters this weekend.

 

After a string of garden gnome disappearances in London, Gnomeo & Juliet look to legendary detective Sherlock Gnomes to solve the case of their missing friends and family.  

 

Blige’s character is a no-nonsense porcelain doll who is in control of her dollhouse and mama don’t take no mess. Sherlock finds himself needing his once engaged lover’s help and she winds up showing him what he’s been missing through an outstanding musical performance and original song “Stronger” written by Elton John.
