I am so insanely excited for this. J.R.R. Tolkien is nothing short of a genius. He is the legendary English writer best known as the author of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. I hope this film does him justice.We now have the official teaser trailer for the upcoming biopic, 'Tolkien' which will be out May 10th.According to Rolling Stone:
Nicholas Hoult stars as the legendary author, and in the clip he explains what his seminal saga will be about: “It’s a story about journeys, the journeys we take to prove ourselves. It’s about adventures, it’s about potent magic, magic beyond anything anyone has ever felt before; it’s about what it means to love, and to be loved; it’s about courage; it’s about fellowship.”
This narration is paired with a montage of moments from Tolkien’s life – wandering the streets with his friends, falling in love with his future with Edith, witnessing the ravages of war – that would go on to inspire his books. Cleverly, these scenes are also juxtaposed with sequences ostensibly from The Lord of the Rings.
