It was probably so obvious that few took notice, but Oscar-winner Bill Condon’s Mr. Holmes is a clever entry in the Sherlock Holmes film series.
Not as flashy as the Robert Downey films or as rat-a-tat-tat in the deliver as the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce programmers, but a nice stroll just the same for a retired Holmes (played Ian McKellen) who is struggling to solve his final case.
Lionsgate Home Entertainment will deliver DVD and Blu-ray editions to detective fans on Nov. 10.
Ticket sales were $15.4 and the ARR is 116 days.
