It’s interesting to hear the news coming through for Fox Searchlight PicturesTolkien, coming to cinemas in the UK and Ireland on 3rd May 2019, mainly because this is the first I’ve heard about it!

The film stars Nicholas Hoult as world-renowned author J.R.R. Tolkien, it’s directed by Dome Karukoski and written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford. There’s also a huge co-starring cast including Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly, Pam Ferris and Derek Jacobi.

Tolkien will explore 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 and, you know, they did all right…
