Following strong reviews from its Berlinale premiere, the first trailer is now out for Bill Condon’s “Mr. Holmes”. Sir Ian McKellen re-teams with his “Gods and Monsters” helmer on this adaptation of Mitch Cullen’s novel “Slight Trick Of The Mind”.
In the story, a now 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes deals with the onset of dementia which is robbing him of his famed mental faculties. Now living in a seaside Sussex farmhouse, he befriends his housekeeper’s young son who helps him revisit the final case he ever worked on.
The film is currently slated for a UK release on June 19th.
