Hoult Tolkien

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.

The new trailer starts out with an introduction from stars Nicholas Hoult and Lilly Collins expressing their gratitude for the chance to tell this story.

It goes on to point out the thematic importance of journeys, which, as fantasy fans know, is the focal point of The Lord of the Rings books, stemming from "an unexpected journey," and how Tolkien's life and time at war shaped who he was and the story he created. They also highlight his lingual accomplishments, which, at the time, he was much more louted for, creating whole new and comprehensive languages.
