It may not be a massive summer blockbuster like Age Of Ultron or Jurassic World, but in its own way Mr. Holmes is just as intriguing, with Ian McKellen playing a retired Sherlock Holmes who’s in his 90s but lured back into one last case.
We had a UK trailer a few weeks ago, but now its time for a better look with its US counterpart.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Academy Award nominee Ian McKellen takes on the iconic role of Detective Sherlock Holmes, one of the British literature’s most revered characters in the forthcoming film MR HOLMES.
‘In 1947, the world famous sleuth has retired to a remote Sussex farmhouse, living in relative anonymity with only his housekeeper Mrs Munro and her young son Roger for company. Cantankerous, demanding and frustrated with the mis-representation of him in Watson’s best-selling novels, he diverts his attention to an unsolved case. As the mystery deepens, Sherlock tries desperately to recall the events of 30 years ago that ultimately led to his retirement.
‘Starring Academy Award nominee Laura Linney (The Savages), Frances de la Tour (Harry Potter) and newcomer Milo Parker, MR HOLMES is adapted from Mitch Cullin’s 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind and is directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters).
MR HOLMES will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on June 19th, and in the US in July.
