Prepare for geekgasm: Ian McKellen is playing an elderly Sherlock Holmes in Bill Condon’s upcoming film A Slight Trick of the Mind. The logline:

The story picks up with the detective at age 93, long-ago retired to the rural area of Sussex, where he is haunted by an unresolved case from a half-century ago.

His partner, Dr. Watson, is no longer with him. And his mental acuity has bid him farewell, too. This is a Sherlock Holmes grappling with his own faded and tattered memory, whose powers of observation and deduction are not what they used to be.

Presenting the Honest Trailer of The Lord of the Rings. It’s a movie series in which everybody is white — and when they die, they come back whiter!

But don’t worry (too much) — “When you have got it, you monitor it, and you have to be careful it doesn’t spread,” Gandalf explains. “But if it is contained in the prostate it’s no big deal. Many, many men die from it, but it’s one of the cancers that is totally treatable.”

Andy Serkis presents Gollum’s holiday travel tips because sure, why not?

"Roll up the precious’s socks and stuff them into shoes. More room for raw fish!! GOLLUM. GOLLUM."

Nerdgasm alert: In honor of the Dec. 14 release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Colbert Report will present four nights of Hobbit-themed programming from Dec. 3 to Dec. 6.

Guests will include stars Ian McKellan (Dec. 3), Martin Freeman (Dec. 4) and Andy Serkis (Dec. 6), along with director Peter Jackson (Dec. 5).

Said Colbert in a statement: “Elen sila lumennomentielvo… I mean that sincerely.” Translation: “A star shines upon the hour of our meeting.”

The Emmys are all well and good — but have you seen Andy Serkis reading from The Hobbit in his Gollum voice yet?
