Sherlock Holmes (2009)
While not directly referencing Freemasonry, the screenwriters have invented yet another fictional secret society: "the Temple of the Four Orders" whose "secret systems have steered the world towards a greater good for centuries"—a "fraternity that secretly controls the Empire." The protagonist, Lord Blackwood, is the bastard son of the head of the order, conceived in an undefined ritual involving sex magick. He is said to take his magical power from a book of spells which includes an illustration of the Baphomet [01:02:20] and a few pentagrams.
Lord Blackwood's wears a ring which has been erroneosly identified as masonic. [01:08:30]
A painted screen in a hidden room details seraphim surmounted by a pentagram [01:12:30]
