Tolkien Official Trailer
The story of the man behind one of the greatest fantasy epics is coming as Fox Searchlight presents the upcoming bio-pic drama film Tolkien. View trailer below.
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.
Loving all things fantasy, I love Tolkien’s work. Granted, I read it late in my young adult life….right before the release of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring was released back in 2001. Still, I was definitely “enchanted” and “mesmerized” by the way that Tolkien’s fantasy world of Middle-Earth was so detailed and immersive. It’s no wonder why he’s consider the “grandfather of fantasy” literature. Thus, it’s quite interesting to see a bio-pic drama feature film made about him, but I guess that Hollywood is buying up bio-pic stories (giving the recent trend of them being released every year). While this first official trailer acts more like “teaser trailer” for the movie, it definitely peeks my interest; wanting to more of the “man” behind the fantasy series.
Tolkien opens in theaters on May 10th, 2019
