Ahh, a film about Tolkien that’s loaded with Middle-Earth imagery, because we just can’t get enough Elves, Hobbits and Wizards. Nicholas Hoult stars as the great writer in a film that seems aggressively against Professor Tolkien’s assertion that The Lord of the Rings was not to be considered an allegory for The Great War, a war in which the author took part. Check out the overly pompous trailer, including an obvious title-font homage to Peter Jackson’s famous film series, below.
