Ahead of its release next Friday, Ian McKellen and Laua Linney were in London this week for the official press conference for Mr. Holmes, which you can watch right here…
MR. HOLMES is a new twist on the world’s most famous detective. 1947, an aging Sherlock Holmes returns from a journey to Japan, where, in search of a rare plant with powerful restorative qualities, he has witnessed the devastation of nuclear warfare. Now, in his remote seaside farmhouse, Holmes faces the end of his days tending to his bees, with only the company of his housekeeper and her young son, Roger. Grappling with the diminishing powers of his mind, Holmes comes to rely upon the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement, and searches for answers to the mysteries of life and love – before it’s too late.
Mr. Holmes also stars Laura Linney, Hattie Morahan, Hiroyuki Sanada and Patrick Kennedy, and is set for release on June 19th in the UK and July 17th in the States.
