Before they shared the role of Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller appeared together in Danny Boyle's much-celebrated production of Frankenstein, taking home the Olivier and Evening Standard awards for Best Actor in 2012. Now their sell-out performances are to be screened for the third time, giving eager fans another chance to see them in the alternating roles of Creature and Creator at UK cinemas from 31 October 2013.

National Theatre Live - the international initiative that brings UK stage productions to cinemas around the world - has also announced plans to screen Sherlock showrunner Mark Gatiss's new production of Coriolanus in which he stars alongside British actor Tom Hiddleston. Gatiss - who has written and produced BBC's detective series starring Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman - will play Roman senator Menenius in the William Shakespeare tragedy at the Donmar Warehouse opposite Hiddleston in the title role. The production will begin performances in December 2013, with live cinema screenings due to commence from 30 January 2014.
