‘TOLKIEN’ to be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on 3 May 2019

Fox Searchlight Pictures has announced that director Dome Karukoski‘s forthcoming J.R.R. Tolkien biopic, TOLKIEN, will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 3 May 2019.

Co-written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford, the film also stars Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly, Pam Ferris and Derek Jacobi.

TOLKIEN explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.
