Between BBC’s Sherlock, CBS’ Elementary, and Warner Bros.’ ongoing film series starring Robert Downey Jr., we’re practically drowning in Sherlock Holmes adaptations at the moment. The last thing we need is another one. Or at least that’s what we would have said before seeing the excellent trailer for Mr. Holmes.
In the new film by Bill Condon, Ian McKellen plays the classic character near the end of his life. Though he’s now living out a peaceful retirement among his beloved bees, Sherlock remains haunted by the circumstances of the case that put him into exile. Watch the Mr Holmes trailer after the jump.

The latest screen incarnation of Sherlock Holmes is a somewhat unusual one. In Mr. Holmes, Ian McKellen plays Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective very late in life, and finds him looking back at an unsolved case even as his own faculties begin to falter. Bill Condon directs, and when it premiered in Berlin earlier this year the reviews were very kind to the film. And let’s be honest — the idea of McKellen playing Holmes at any age is great, and something we’re eager to see. We’ve seen one clip from the movie, but now here’s the first Mr. Holmes trailer.

There have been more screen incarnations of Sherlock Holmes than we can easily count, with two active on television right now. And still the idea of Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes is something we’re still eager to see. Now we can — and as one might expect, Sir Ian’s Holmes is somewhat unique.
Based upon the novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin, the film Mr. Holmes catches up with Sherlock very late in life, when he has retired to a country home. Holmes is beumsed, and to some extent irritated by the inflated tales of his exploits. The story finds him returning — mentally, at least — to old stories and memories. Bill Condon directs the film which “reflects upon the interplay between truth and legend, age and memory, unresolved guilt and the chance to finally make peace with oneself.” There’s no trailer for the film just yet, but you can see McKellan’s Sherlock now in a Mr. Holmes clip.
