Yesterday, the teaser trailer for Ian McKellen’s upcoming film Mr Holmes was released.
Academy Award nominee Ian McKellen takes on the role of Detective Sherlock Holmes in the upcoming Mr Holmes.
The film description reads:
“In 1947, the world-famous sleuth has retired to a remote Sussex farmhouse, living in relative anonymity with only his housekeeper Mrs Munro (Laura Linney) 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.”
Mr Holmes is adapted from Mitch Cullin’s 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind and is directed by openly gay, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Bill Condon.
Mr Holmes will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on June 19.
