A new dramatisation of the life of The Lord of the Rings creator JRR Tolkien is on its way, simply entitled Tolkien.

Starring Nicholas Hoult as the famed author, as well as the likes of Lily Collins, Colm Meany and Pam Ferris, the movie delves into his formative years, and what eventually led to the creation of the Middle-Earth series.

Tolkien is releasing overseas in May. We await an Australian date.

Here’s the teaser – isn’t it handy that “Tolkien” has an ‘o’ in there…?
