Official Trailer for ‘Mr. Holmes’ Shows a Retired Sherlock Revisiting an Unsolved Case From the Past

Entertainment One UK film has released the official trailer for the upcoming film Mr. Holmes, which centers upon the famous detective, played by Sir Ian McKellen, in his retirement years as he seeks to revisit an unsolved case from 30 years prior and the events that lead to his retreat from public life.

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.
