Check out the first official trailer of Mr. Holmes, the upcoming crime drama mystery movie directed by Bill Condon and starring Ian McKellen, Laura Linney, Hiroyuki Sanada, Milo Parker, Roger Allam, and Nicholas Rowe:
“Set in 1947, MR. HOLMES follows a long-retired Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen), who lives in a sleepy village outside of London with his housekeeper Mrs Munro (Laura Linney) and her amateur-sleuthing son (Milo Parker).
With his legendary mental powers on the wane and minus his sidekick Watson, Holmes becomes haunted by an unsolved case from 50 years ago where he remembers only fragments: a confrontation with an angry husband and a secret bond with his beautiful but unstable wife.”
Can’t say am excited about the film after watching this first trailer… The whole thing just looks like a cute story about old Sherlock befriending and becoming the mentor of a young boy. Cute, but where’ the great detective we all know?
The film should be released in theaters sometime this Summer.
