Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the first official trailer for Dome Karukoski‘s forthcoming J.R.R. Tolkien biopic, Tolkien, out in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 3 May 2019.
Co-written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford, the film stars Nicholas Hoult as the world-renowned author, alongside 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.
