We have previously announced that Netflix acquired the global rights to Legendary Entertainment’s upcoming film “Enola Holmes” and we now have a release date and trailer. The film, which arrives September 23rd, stars Millie Bobby Brown (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters”, “Stranger Things”) and Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games” films, “Me Before You”) and is based on Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated book series, The Enola Holmes Mysteries. The film follows Sherlock Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings. When her mother mysteriously disappears on her 16th birthday, Enola seeks help from her older brothers. But soon realizing they’re less interested in solving the case than in packing her off to finishing school, Enola does the only thing a smart, resourceful and fearless young 1880s woman can do… she runs away to London to find her. Meeting a cast of memorable characters along the way, Enola’s caught in the middle of a conspiracy that could alter the course of political history. “Enola Holmes” puts a dynamic new female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family.
Other cast includes: Adeel Akhtar (“The Big Sick”), Fiona Shaw (“Killing Eve”), Frances de la Tour (“Into the Woods”), Louis Partridge (“Medici”), Burn Gorman (“Pacific Rim”), Susan Wokoma (“Crazyhead”), with Henry Cavill (“The Witcher”), and two-time Oscar nominee Helena Bonham Carter (“The Crown”).
England, 1884 – a world on the brink of change. On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), both set on sending her away to a finishing school for “proper” young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord (Louis Partridge), Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history. Based on the beloved book series by Nancy Springer, ENOLA HOLMES is a dynamic new mystery-adventure that introduces the world’s greatest detective to his fiercest competition yet: his teenage sister. The game is afoot.
