WATCH: Ian McKellen Is ‘Mr. Holmes’ In Official Trailer For New Sherlock Holmes Film

 Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 12.12.30 PM

Ian McKellen stars in the new film Mr. Holmes, an adaptation of Mitch Cullin’s novel A Slight Trick of the Mind, as the legendary detective himself, Sherlock Holmes.

However, this new iteration of the famous sleuth is quite different than Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch’s recent robust take on the character. Ian McKellen plays a retired, elderly Holmes facing the trials and tribulations of old age as the brilliant detective’s mind begins to deteriorate, but the intuitive detective proves he still has some wit left at the age of 93.

The first teaser footage of Bill Condon’s take on Sherlock Holmes starring Ian McKellan has dropped, and it’s every bit as charming as you might have deduced. McKellan’s Holmes is a 93 year-old retiree spending his days in the English countryside reminiscing about his former life as a detective as stories about him gain popularity in early 1940s cinema. Now more beekeeper than detective, Holmes has largely left crime-solving behind save for the memories of a few unsolved cases that continue to pique his interest.
