Nearly a couple weeks ago, Mr. Holmes was set for a release in July this summer. And now the new approach to the iconic detective and logical mind has just debuted another international teaser trailer with Ian McKellen taking the spotlight. It doesn't give much away in the vein of the story, and it's edited rather weirdly with a black fade encapsulating the images and narrowing the scope of view, even though those images don't appear that way in the film. It's a very odd choice, especially considering is doesn't add much to the proceedings and isn't meant to hide. Anyway, Alex loved this at Berlin, and I'm excited to see it.
Here's the latest international teaser trailer for Bill Condon's Mr. Holmes from YouTube:

Always loved the Holmes character. Glad to see him getting a more faithful looking feature film. Do not mistake me though the BBC series is magnificent, but Holmes' big screen adventures of late have been a tad off the mark.

Background story about the fictitious person adds something new to reality. I reckon it's not the imagination and just can't see what it is ...
