New Mr. Holmes Trailer Is a Lot More Sherlock Holmes-y


Go figure – somebody in marketing finally realized, in a deduction less than worthy of the world’s greatest detective, that selling a movie about Sherlock Holmes as a Sherlock Holmes mystery is more effective than emphasizing the drama of his having Alzheimer’s.

Not having seen the movie yet myself, I couldn’t tell you which is closest to the truth of the film, but this does a much better job of selling Mr. Holmes to existing fans of the character.

I’m a little disappointed in the guy who appears to be playing Basil Rathbone, though.
