Nicholas Hoult Takes You To Middle Earth As ‘Tolkien’ (Movie Trailer)

I had no idea J.R.R. Tolkien was hot when he was young 😉 Well, at least the cinematic version is. Nicholas Hoult steps in to play the famed English writer in the biopic titled Tolkien.

The film 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.

Also starring in the Dome Karukoski-directed movie are Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly, Pam Ferris and Derek Jacobi.

Tolkien arrives in theaters on May 10, 2019. Check out the trailer below.
