Mr. Holmes is the latest film adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, based on the 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin. The film is directed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Parts 1-2, Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh). Rather than being a continuing adventure of the famed English detective in the late 19th century, the film takes place in 1947, with Sir Ian McKellen (Magneto in the X-Men series, Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings series) playing 95-year-old Holmes. This is gonna be one depressing film. Mr. Holmes premieres in the UK on June 19 and in the U.S. on July 17. Mr. Holmes @ IMDb
