A trailer and one-sheet poster have been released for Mr Holmes.
Starring Ian McKellen as Detective Sherlock Holmes, the film also stars Laura Linney (The Savages), Frances de la Tour (Harry Potter) and newcomer Milo Parker. It is adapted from Mitch Cullin’s 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind and is directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters).
In 1947, the world famous sleuth has retired to a remote Sussex farmhouse, living in relative anonymity with only his housekeeper Mrs Munro 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 will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on June 19th. Watch the trailer and see the one-sheet poster below:
