You loved The Lord of the Rings movies, maybe you even tolerated The Hobbit movies, but now, prepare to see Middle Earth in a way you never have before: through Tolkien's eyes.
The FOX Searchlight production, aptly named TOLKIEN and directed by Dome Karukoski, is set to come to theaters in May 2019. It reportedly stars Nicholas Hoult as the forefather of fantasy, alongside Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patric Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O'Reilly, Pam Ferris and Derek Jacobi.

In the trailer, we hear Hoult (as Tolkien) say, "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." The audio plays over scenes of the young author in his daily life — conversing with friends, falling in love, and eventually seeing the ravages of World War II.
