Here's the first trailer for what may become one of awards season 2015's biggest hits. After a few moderate-hits / near-misses with awards voters, Bill Condon turned to the Twilight series to make a few safe bucks, and now returns to prestige pics with Mr. Holmes, a story of Sherlock Holmes' later years, based on Mitch Cullin's novel A Slight Trick of the Mind. Condon's Oscar-nominated Gods and Monsters lead Ian McKellen takes the titular role, with support from Laura Linney, who has worked with Condon on Kinsey, The Fifth Estate and TV's The Big C. No US release date just yet - perhaps they're waiting to see how it fares in the UK, where its release is currently set for the 19th of June.
