Ian McKellen has one last mystery to solve in the trailer for Mr. Holmes
Now that a wide release for Bill Condon's MR. HOLMES has been announced, we also have a brand new trailer to go along with it. For those not in the know, Mr. Holmes stars Ian McKellen as the famed detective in what looks to be a more grounded take on the character. The story will follow an aging Sherlock Holmes in 1947 as he seeks to revisit the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement before his mind diminishes. You can get a taste of the sleuthing below.
Bill Condon looks like he has a nice, little character piece to deliver before he goes all BEAUTY AND THE BEAST on us. I find it a little odd that they chose to release this in the midst of the summer movie season instead of the fall, but there ya have it. Perhaps if they showed a version of the trailer where Sherlock Holmes busts out his Hulkbuster armor, the movie would stand a better chance.
MR. HOLMES will open in theaters on July 17, 2015.
