Ahead of the film's premiere tonight in London, Fox Searchlight Pictures have made available two new clips from TOLKIEN.
TOLKIEN stars Nicholas Hoult as world-renowned author J.R.R. Tolkien. It's set for release in UK cinemas this Friday, May 3rd.
'Off to War'
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.
Directed by Dome Karukoski from a script by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford, the film 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.
TOLKIEN is produced by Peter Chernin p.g.a., Jenno Topping p.g.a., David Ready p.g.a., and Kris Thykier p.g.a..
