Mr. Holmes Trailer Shows Ian McKellen as an Aged Version of Sherlock

By   /   Mar 5, 2015

Mr. Holmes’ first trailer released earlier this week shows one last mystery to be solved as he is nearing the end of his life.

After a lifetime of detective work, there is only one mystery left to be solved and that is ‘his own’. The trailer revealed that Sir Ian McKellen would be playing the legendary character of Sherlock Holmes in Bill Condon’s upcoming Mr. Holmes.

The interesting part is that the trailer is telling a story which has not been shown on the big screen. An unidentified mystery of his own, something we have not yet seen on TV series.

Mr. Kellen’s occurrence in the movie adds a definite spark to it. We have seen him transform iron as Magneto, surf a magical stuff as Gandalf, and now he is performing the most iconic detective of all time. Ian McKellen is the older, loveable version of Sherlock Holmes.

What’s fascinating is that Mr. Holmes is produced in two different periods and Mr. McKellen used makeup and aesthetics to show the older Holmes. The Sherlock Holmes charisma sincerely has come across a great reawakening on the fiction scene in the previous few years.

It has been on TV that Arthur Conan Doyle’s most prominent protagonist has truly grown. Benedict Cumberbatch keeps on getting rave appraisals for his turn in Sherlock, which will be commencing its fourth arrangement towards the end of the year.

However, America has its own on-going version of Sherlock Holmes as Jonny Lee Miller plays a prodigious detective in Elementary.
