For the cast, newcomer Ferdia Shaw is playing the title character, with Judi Dench, Breathe's Miranda Raison and Frozen star Josh Gad also in the key cast.
Kenneth Branagh directs the film, working from an adaptation from playwright Conor McPherson, who has most recently taken charge of Bob Dylan musical Girl From The North Country.
The film was first due to hit cinemas on August 9th in 2019, but was then pushed back until May 29th in 2020, when it will hit UK cinemas.
