YOU…SHALL…NOT…SOLVE THIS CASE! Outside of Lord Of the Rings and X-Men, Ian McKellen movies aren’t exactly a dime a dozen. The actor calls the theater home, but he does happen to have another non-wizard/mutant related film on the horizon, as he portrays an older version of the famed detective Sherlock Holmes.Here’s your first look at McKellen as Mr Holmes:

Set in 1947, Mr Holmes stars McKellen as a 93-year-old iteration of the master sleuth, with Holmes living in retirement and his faithful ally John Watson being quite dead. Stuck with another nosy housekeeper and her amateur sleuth of a son, Holmes decides to solve a 50-year old cold case that left him baffled in the past.

Bill “Kinsey” Condon directs, with the film also starring Laura Linney. I hope when I reach the age of 93, I’ll finally be able to solve the case of my missing sock. Damn you Moriarty, you’ll pay for this!
