Tolkien will be released in UK and Irish cinemas on 3rd May 2019 by Fox Searchlight Pictures.

The film stars Nicholas Hoult as world-renowned author J.R.R. Tolkien. The cast also includes Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly, Pam Ferris and Derek Jacobi.

Tolkien explores 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.

The film is directed by Dome Karukoski from a script by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford.

It is produced by Peter Chernin p.g.a., Jenno Topping p.g.a., David Ready p.g.a., and Kris Thykier p.g.a..
