Fox Searchlight has released another trailer for Tolkien, the biopic of Lord of the Rings author J. R. R. Tolkien.
This is the second look at the film so far, following last month’s initial trailer. This time around, the focus is more on the inspiration for Middle-earth and what would become one of the greatest literary stories of all time.
Simply titled Tolkien, the biopic explores the storyteller’s early years, as he becomes friends and forms a “fellowship” with a group of outcasts at school and falls in love with his future wife, Edith Bratt (Lily Collins), before heading off to fight in WWI. Fox Searchlight Pictures kicked off the project’s marketing back in January by releasing the first-look images, followed by a teaser trailer shortly after. Now, with some two months left before the movie hits theaters, a full-length trailer has been unveiled.
Directed by Dome Karukoski, Tolkien stars Nicholas Hoult, Lilly Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly, Pam Ferris and Derek Jacobi, and is set to be released on May 10.
