This June 19th Ian McKellen will take to Irish cinema screens to present his take on the iconic character Sherlock Holmes in Mr Holmes (CERT PG), in the film adaption of the novel 'A Slight Trick of the Mind' by Mitch Cullin.

In 1947, the world famous sleuth has retired to a remote Sussex farmhouse, living in relative anonymity with only his housekeeper Mrs Munro and her young son Roger for company. Cantankerous, demanding and frustrated with the mis-representation of him in Watson's bestselling novels, he diverts his attention to an unsolved case. As the mystery deepens, Sherlock tries desperately to recall the events of 30 years ago that ultimately led to his retirement.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records Sherlock Holmes is the most portrayed fictional character across film and television.
