Well, this is delightful. Ian McKellen has shared a first clip of himself as elderly, retired Sherlock Holmes in upcoming movie Mr. Holmes, based on novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin. It also features Milo Parker as Roger, Holmes’s housekeeper’s son. McKellen also shared the teaser poster. The movie premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival yesterday. No word on a general release date, but I’ll keep you posted.
Exclusive first clip from my new film MR HOLMES. I’m Holmes, age 93, working my final case with a young confidante. https://t.co/UmlbDP25to
