First Clip of Sir Ian McKellen in Mr Holmes
We’ve already seen the first photo of the acting legend Sir Ian McKellen as well known detective Sherlock Holmes and now there’s a clip to really get you in the crime solving mood.
The movie follows Sherlock Holmes in his later years, retired and nearing 100 years old when he decides to revisit an old case which once caused him to leave the crime cracking business.
In this clip, Sherlock and his “young confidant” Roger, played by Milo Parker, discuss the case as they take a peaceful stroll together.
The movie synopsis is described as follows:
“MR. HOLMES is a new twist on the world’s most famous detective. In 1947, an aging Sherlock Holmes returns from a journey to Japan, where, in search of a rare plant with powerful restorative qualities, he has witnessed the devastation of nuclear warfare. Now, in his remote seaside farmhouse, Holmes faces the end of his days tending to his bees, with only the company of his housekeeper and her young son, Roger. Grappling with the diminishing powers of his mind, Holmes comes to rely upon the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement, and searches for answers to the mysteries of life and love – before it’s too late.”
The flick directed by Bill Condon doesn’t yet have a release date but many are expecting it to be this year!
