First Trailer for “Mr. Holmes” starring Ian Mckellen Released

The first official teaser trailer for director Bill Collins’ “Mr. Holmes” was released earlier today. The trailer features Sir Ian Mckellen as long-retired Sherlock Holmes with housekeeper Mrs Munro (Laura Linney) and her small son Roger (Milo Parker):

The film is based of the 2006 novel, “A Slight Trick of the Mind” by Mitch Cullin. Set in 1947, the film follows 93-year old Holmes, now suffering dementia, as he tries to solve one last case with his young protégée. It’s sure to be a heartbreaking and touching look into Sherlock Holmes.

The film is set to hit UK theaters this summer and a US release is expected later this year.
