Check Out the First Trailer for this Summer’s J.R.R. Tolkien Biopic, Tolkien

The life of J.R.R. Tolkien was as tumultuous as his books: orphaned at young age, marked by World War I, fighting to woo the woman he loved despite the disapproval of his guardians, and finally unspooling an entire fantasy world and multiple languages while teaching at Oxford. Now this story will get a star-studded cinematic treatment in a new biopic, Tolkien, with Nicholas Hoult as the author himself, Lily Collins as Tolkien’s ladylove (and inspiration for Lúthien Tinúviel) Edith Bratt, and Colm Meaney as the young Tolkien’s guardian and parish priest, Father Francis Morgan.

Click through for the full trailer!

 

Tolkien will simply walk into theaters on May 10, 2019!
