Tolkien Trailer #2 and Poster Released


Fox releases a full trailer for the new Tolkien movie with an introduction by its stars, Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins. A new poster has also been released stating, “A Life of Love, Courage & Fellowship.”

J. R. R. Tolkien is responsible for writing The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit, which inspired the epic Peter Jackson movies.

Tolkien explores the formative years of the renowned author’s life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a fellow group of writers and artists at school. Their brotherhood strengthens as they grow up and weather love and loss together, including Tolkien’s tumultuous courtship of his beloved Edith Bratt, until the outbreak of the First World War which threatens to tear their fellowship apart. All of these experiences would later inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.

The movie is in theaters May 10, 2019 directed by Dome Karukoski, written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford, produced by Peter Chernin p.g.a., Jenno Topping p.g.a., David Ready p.g.a., Kris Thykier p.g.a., and 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.
