Gone are the days when we relied on the big screen and a share-size bucket of popcorn for the latest movies with an all-star cast.
Over recent years, Netflix has significantly upped their game and their latest mystery thriller, Harry Bradbeer’s Enola Holmes backs this up. The role of Sherlock was landed by The Witcher’s Henry Cavill (aka The Man of Steel) and the internet has gone into full meltdown over his new look.
The mind’s eye doesn’t immediately envision Sherlock Holmes as a strikingly good-looking man in a dapper tweed suit, but this version has him as exactly that.
However, it seems to have left Stranger Things starlet Millie Bobby Brown in the shadows – despite it being her first leading role in a feature-length film.
Enola Holmes focuses on Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister and it’s not just Cavill and Bobby Brown that make up the stellar cast.
Killing Eve favourite Fiona Shaw also joined the ranks and the trailer certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Eager fans caught the first trailer drop yesterday and their reactions have flooded the internet, mainly raving about Cavill and his steely good looks:
Cavill seems to have stolen hearts around the world and rightly so; aside from his sizzling jawline and perfectly curled hair, his filmography includes characters such as Superman, Geralt of Rivia, August Walker and now Sherlock Holmes.
In other Cavill-related news, only hours ago, a Making The Witcher documentary dropped on Netflix.
The half-hour special takes fans behind the scenes of the hit fantasy show that is currently in production for season 2.
Production on season 2 of The Witcher had come to somewhat of a lengthy halt due to Covid-19 but you’ll be pleased to know the eight-episode long series has now resumed filming (although it is doubtful it will meet its original 2021 release date).
Meanwhile, Cavill has spent his downtime in lockdown building a nerdy supercomputer which just goes to show he’s got the braun and the brains.
Enola Holmes premieres on Netflix on 23rd September 2020 so you needn’t wait long to get our Cavill fix.
