‘Tolkien’: New Trailer For Movie About ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘Lord Of The Rings’ Author J.R.R. Tolkien Released
  |  @   |  

Last month we saw an “official trailer” for Tolkien, a J.R.R. Tolkien biopic. But that trailer was much more of a teaser at less than a minute long. Now Fox Searchlight has released a proper official trailer, which runs over two minutes long.

The movie stars Nicholas Hoult as the The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings author, and he’s joined on the cast by Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly, Pam Ferris, and Derek Jacobi.

Continue below for a synopsis for Tolkien, and to check out the new trailer for the movie.

SYNOPSIS:

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.

The movie is directed by Dome Karukoski, whose previous credits include Lapland Odyssey and Tom of Finland. David Gleeson (Cowboys & Angels) and Stephen Beresford (Pride) penned the screenplay.

Tolkien is set to be released in theaters on May 10th.
