Mr. Holmes Trailer: Watch An Elderly Sherlock Holmes Solve One Last Case
Though he is certainly getting up there in years, Sir Ian McKellen has spent the last 15 years playing some of the most legendary characters in pop culture. We've seen him morph metal as Magneto, wave a magical staff as Gandalf, and now he's playing the most iconic detective of all time.

Watch Ian McKellen As An Older, Loveable Version Of Sherlock Holmes
Sir Ian McKellen is regarded as one of the finest British actors of all time, and Sherlock Holmes is seen as arguably the most beloved fictional British character ever created. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that molding the two together would make for cinematic gold. This teaser clip for Mr. Holmes suggests that’s exactly the case.

Get Your First Look At Ian McKellen As Sherlock Holmes
Thanks to modern day small screen portrayals like Benedict Cumberbatch's in Sherlock and Jonny Lee Miller's in Elementary - not to mention big screen takes like Robert Downey Jr.'s in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes movies - we've gotten used to seeing younger versions of author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective character. But next year director Bill Condon and Sir Ian McKellen will do their part to slice some more age variety into the mix.

Watch James McAvoy And Michael Fassbender Imitate Their X-Men Counterparts
With X-Men: Days Of Future Past already in theaters, and already racking up some excellent reviews, it's time to relax and look forward to the next installment of Professor Xavier's gifted youngsters and their uncanny adventures.

More specifically, we have a video where both James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender try to imitate their more mature selves, and the results make for quite a good laugh.

Ian McKellen Meets Gandalf In Sesame Street's Upcoming Lord Of The Crumbs Parody
It isn’t shocking that they’ll be going for a J.R.R. Tolkien reference, given The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is coming out on Friday, but I wonder why they didn’t just come up with something to go along with that movie. Maybe Oscar will make a smog joke, or there will be a bunch of people hiding inside of barrels. Am I trying to start Sesame Street rumors? Maybe.

Ian McKellen Will Play A Retired Sherlock Holmes For Fifth Estate Director Bill Condon
At some point we're going to have to cry uncle and admit that there are too many Sherlock Holmeses running around in pop culture right now… but I think we can make room for Ian McKellen in the meantime. At the Toronto Film Festival director Bill Condon announced, via Deadline, that he will direct McKellen in A Slight Trick Of The Mind, in which McKellen will play a retired Sherlock Holmes still haunted by a case from 50 years in the past

Sir Ian McKellen Finishes Filming The Hobbit And Says Goodbye To Gandalf
For McKellen this is the end of an adventure that began 14-years-ago. It was October of 1999 when Ian first stepped on to the Lord of the Rings set to film his first scenes in the acclaimed trilogy. It’s unlikely he would have predicted he’d still be playing the character of Gandalf, in yet another trilogy, all the way into 2013.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Might Be Eyeing 3D And 48 FPS
While doing Hobbit press, McKellen said Singer attended the premiere with James Cameron and was very impressed with the technology Jackson used to make the vision come to life. So much so that he might use 3D and 48 fps for Days of Future Past.

Ian McKellen Explores The Lighter Side Of Gandalf On The Set Of The Hobbit
It’s hard to even fathom the idea of Peter Jackson making The Hobbit without Ian McKellen. Beyond the fact that Gandalf plays an incredibly important role in J.R.R. Tolkien’s first novel, McKellen’s performance in the The Lord of the Rings trilogy was nothing short of iconic and he was a major part of what made the movies so iconic.

Pub Named After The Hobbit Ordered To Change Its Name
“I can’t fight Hollywood,” the owner told the BBC, and therefore must remove all Hobbit references, including the pub’s name, which has been in place for more than 20 years.

Two New Images Of Bilbo And Gandalf In The Hobbit Look Awfully Familiar

Ian McKellen Tweets From The Hobbit Set: Even Wizards Wear 3D Glasses
You see with The Hobbit shooting in 3D you have to don the glasses just to look at the dailies, so at some point Bilbo and all the dwarves will probably put the shades on too; McKellen is just the only one awesome enough to tweet it
