J.R.R. Tolkien is my favorite writer and, as you can guess, I am impatient to see this film, and more after knowing the first official trailer, which has been published today. I bring it to you here.
The film is directed by the Finnish filmmaker Dome Karukoski. The role of the British writer will be played by the English actor Nicholas Hoult, who you know among other things for having appeared in the series “Skins” and for his role as a Beast in the latest films of X-Men. You can see below a couple of the first images of the film published at the end of January.
The role of Edith Tolkien is done by the Anglo-American actress Lily Collins, who played the role of Snow White in “Mirror, Mirror” (2012).
The film will be released in the United Kingdom on May 3, 2019, and in the United States on May 10. It will arrive in Spain in June.
