Ian McKellen Plays Sherlock Holmes

Miramax has released the first trailer for Mr. Holmes, starring Ian McKellen as the aged sleuth with one last case to crack. Set in 1947, Holmes has long since retired to his English country house and is now busy beekeeping. But one mystery from his past continues to buzz around his bonnet, and soon he is off to Japan in search of a rare botanical specimen.

The film, loosely adapted by director Bill Condon from Mitch Cullin's novel, A Slight Trick of the Mind, premiered in Berlin last month. It should be stateside later this year. Read an early review here. Watch the one-minute teaser here:
