Mr Holmes Film Trailer

We finally have a trailer for the much talked about Mr Holmes – the latest Sherlock Holmes instalment that sees Ian McKellen take the helm as the Baker Street genius.

The cinematic adaptation of Mitch Cullen’s novel Slight Trick Of The Mind, Mr Holmes finds Holmes a retired 93 year-old in 1947. Confronting the demise of his mental abilities, Sherlock returns from a trip to Japan in search of a plant with curative properties, which also saw him witness first-hand the devastation of nuclear warfare.

On his return, Holmes retreats to a seaside Sussex farmhouse with only his housekeeper Mrs. Munroe (Laura Linney) and her young son Roger (Milo Parker) for company, Holmes comes to rely on the youngster as he revisits the case that made him give up his detective work and confront his declining health.

Sherlock Holmes is big business these days and we think Mr Holmes could add a truly refreshing take on the legend.

Co-starring Hattie Morahan, Patrick Kennedy, Hiroyuki Sanada, Roger Allam, Colin Starkey and Philip Davis also in the cast, Mr. Holmes will be released in the UK on the 16th June 2015. Check out the trailer below.
