Yes, it’s exactly the Mr. Holmes you think it is, none other than the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. This is the first trailer for mystery drama Mr. Holmes. Set in 1947, the film follows a very old (93 years) and retired Sherlock Holmes, now living in a small village in Sussex with his housekeeper and […]
Director: Kim Suk Yoon.
Cast: Kim Myung Min, Lee Yeon Hee, Oh Dal Su, Jo Kwan Woo.
Running Time: 125 minutes
Synopsis: Detective K (Kim) returns to uncover the mystery of missing girls and counterfeit silver.
In 2011, Detective K: Secret Of The Virtuous Woman proved to be Korea’s answer to Sherlock Holmes. Not just the character in general, but actually quite similar to Robert Downey Jr.’s portrayal. There’s humour, the banter with sidekick Seo Pil (Oh), a mysterious woman caught up in a romantic subplot (Lee), action, and plenty of clever sequences designed to unravel the mystery in the most visually pleasing way possible.
A mystery is only as good as to how much we as the audience care for the conclusion, and Detective K: Secret Of The Lost Island does that extremely well. The counterfeit storyline is given extra weight thanks to the inclusion of »

Sherlock Holmes is seemingly everywhere these days. Robert Downey Jr. plays him as an action hero on the big screen. Benedict Cumberbatch plays him on the small screen over on the British side of the pond; on the American he's played by Jonny Lee Miller. He's in goofy straight-to-video movies. People still write new books with the character. He's in comic books. He's basically all around us. So how do you tell a story with Sherlock Holmes that's going to stand out in a sea of other Sherlock Holmes? Apparently you cast Ian McKellen and make it about an elderly Holmes toward the end of his life. Directed by Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Dreamgirls), Mr. Holmes tells the story of the eponymous crime solver teaming up with a neighboring boy to investigate the...

Sherlock Holmes is ready to solve one last mystery. The first trailer for Mr. Holmes has finally arrived and loyal fans of Sir Ian McKellen will be happy to know he's not done solving crimes just yet. Instead, "there's one mystery left to solve. His own." Dun, dun, dunnn. Before the elderly detective digs into an unsolved case involving a mysterious young woman, McKellen begins to spend a lot of his time with a curious young boy played by Milo Parker. While the inquisitive youngster is deeply intrigued by the detective's life, McKellen is a bit more focused on trying to remember a few clues that could crack the final mystery. Set in 1947, the unlikely duo manages »
Though he is certainly getting up there in years, Sir Ian McKellen has spent the last 15 years playing some of the most legendary characters in pop culture. We've seen him morph metal as Magneto, wave a magical staff as Gandalf, and now he's playing the most iconic detective of all time. Check him out in the first trailer for Mr. Holmes below. This isn't the first time that we've gotten a peek at Bill Condon's upcoming Mr. Holmes, with images and clips having previously been released, but it's still tremendously easy to be charmed by this trailer. The movie is telling a part of the Sherlock Holmes tale that we haven't seen on the big screen before - with the master detective nearing the end of his life - but it has a wonderful spark that comes from McKellen's presence and a stylish, period flair. Because the movie seems »
Best known for comedies like Dodgeball and We're The Millers, writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber is taking a rather different direction for a future project. He's developing a movie based on the board game and graphic novel Dust, which has just found a home at studio Lionsgate. Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, The Lego Movie) is producing.Not to be confused with the god simulator From Dust, this Dust is based on the tabletop strategy game by Paolo Parente. Parente went solo to create the game after working on Magic: The Gathering and Mutant Chronicles, and spun it into enough of a cult success that it now has its own convention in Arizona.Players work their way through scenarios in a steampunk 1940s where World War II is still raging and the world has been divided into three blocs. Based around a cards-and-dice system, the aim is to rack up 'victory »
We've seen lots of iterations of Sherlock Holmes in pop culture, but never have we seen this one: the elderly version. Ian McKellen takes on the role of Sherlock in his later years, back to solve one last mystery in 1947. The best part of the trailer, though, is how perfect McKellen seems in this part and how heartbreaking it is to see such a beloved character struggling some (does he have Alzheimer's?) as he interacts with his housekeeper and her young son. Mr. Holmes comes out this Summer, so get your first look now. »
Ian McKellen leads a stellar cast including Laura Linney, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hattie Morahan, Patrick Kennedy, Roger Allam, Frances de la Tour, Phil Davis and newcomer Milo Parker in Bill Condon’s Mr Holmes. The film reunites McKellen with director Bill Condon after their collaboration on the Academy Award-winning Gods And Monsters.
Based on the novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin, the intriguing premise for Mr Holmes reimagines Sherlock Holmes as a real person whose adventures have been turned into best-selling novels by his friend and partner Dr John Watson. Now old and in failing health, the famously rational detective is forced to engage for the first time with his emotions as his mental powers dwindle.

The latest screen incarnation of Sherlock Holmes is a somewhat unusual one. In Mr. Holmes, Ian McKellen plays Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective very late in life, and finds him looking back at an unsolved case even as his own faculties begin to falter. Bill Condon directs, and when it premiered in Berlin earlier this year the reviews were […]

After the first clip from Mr. Holmes landed last month, Miramax has now planted a full trailer online. Sir Ian McKellen takes center stage as an older, wiser version of Arthur Conan Doyle’s career-defining character, Sherlock Holmes. Shifting the focus from his early days as a studly detective, in this forthcoming movie, Holmes has become what we all will eventually – old.
At the helm is McKellen’s Gods and Monster director Bill Condon, whose take on Sherlock finds the crime-solving sleuth living a quiet life by the sea. With just his housekeeper and her son for company, he finds himself a little bored. A not entirely unexpected predicament considering he spent the best part of his life up to his neck in investigations. Eager to rekindle the spice of life, Holmes re-opens an old unsolved case, stirring up memories of days gone by.
The elements are all in place for a schmaltzy melodrama, »

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic Sherlock Holmes tales have had many film and TV iterations, most recently with Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch playing versions of the sleuth. Now we're about to see an aging Holmes, played by Ian McKellen, in Bill Condon's Mr. Holmes, where he'll embark on one last investigation with a much younger sidekick. (Though we're secretly hoping Patrick Stewart shows up as Watson at some point.) »

Directed by Bill Condon, "Mr. Holmes" follows an aging Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen) facing the end of his days in a remote seaside farmhouse. With his only company being his housekeeper (Laura Linney) and her young son, Roger (Milo Parker), Holmes grows to rely upon the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement. Although the character of Sherlock Holmes has been explored many times over the years, "Mr. Holmes" appears to be a new take on the world's most famous detective. From the looks of the trailer, McKellen's aging Sherlock appears to be losing his memory. This should make for a fresh and interesting take on the character, as Sherlock Holmes' identity often rests on the sharpness of his mind. "Mr. Holmes" will open in theaters this summer. Check out the teaser trailer below: Read More: Berlin: Ian McKellen on Why »
