Fox Searchlight has released a full length second trailer for upcoming biopic Tolkien, which stars Nicholas Hout as the J.R.R Tolkien and Lily Collins as Edith Bratt.
The biopic will be chronicling the legendary author’s earlier years at school, meeting his future wife, Edith Bratt, and then his time spent at war in WWI, all the while creating the iconic world of Middle Earth.
Check out the trailer below!
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.
Tolkien is directed by Dome Karukoski and stars Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly, Pam Ferris and Derek Jacobi.
Tolkien is set for release on the 10th May 2019.
