Ian McKellen, who has embodied Gandalf and Magneto on film, in addition to a lifetime of Shakspearean work on the stage, assumes another iconic role, Sherlock Holmes, in the forthcoming film, “Mr. Holmes.”

In it, the now 93-year-old sleuth tries to solve the case that forced him into retirement. Laura Linney is also featured in the film, which was unveiled last month at the Berln Film Festival and due to open June 19 in the U.K. and at a date to be announced in the U.S. this summer. It is directed by Bill Condon ("Dreamgirls," "Gods and Monsters").
