He is the greatest detective the world has ever seen! It's just that the world hasn't seen him for almost 25 years.

Check out the newly released U.S. trailer for "Mindhorn," a British comedy about a washed-up, over-the-hill actor from the '80s named Richard Thorncroft, who gets a shot at making a comeback when a real-life criminal investigation inexplicably requires the services of his most famous television character: Mindhorn, the badass cop with a robotic eye! Now Thorncroft must "stay in character at all times" to catch a fugitive serial killer who not only believes Mindhorn is a real detective but also is the only cop he's willing to negotiate with.

English comedian Julian Barratt, who is one of the founding members of the British comedy troupe "The Mighty Boosh," stars as Richard Thorncroft aka Mindhorn. Barratt also co-wrote the film with fellow comedian Simon Farnaby.

Directed by British theater comedian Sean Foley, "Mindhorn" boasts an impressive supporting cast that includes Andrea Riseborough (Birdman), Essie Davis (The Babadook), Russell Tovey (The History Boys), and David Schofield (Da Vinci's Demons) with special appearances by Kenneth Branagh, Simon Callow, and Steve Coogan.

"Mindhorn" was released last week in the UK but will make its U.S. debut on Netflix this weekend, beginning Friday, May 12th.

synopsis:
Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s detective show Mindhorn, playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally "see the truth." Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star/paramour Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).
