Tolkien Trailer

J.R.R. Tolkien is one of the most beloved and respected authors of all time. Through his creation of the fantasy world known as Middle-earth, Tolkien gave readers a series of epic adventures in The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and more. As we all know, several of Tolkien’s books have become major motion pictures, but now the man himself will have his story told on the big screen.

Tolkien is a new biopic from Fox Searchlight staring Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class, Warm Bodies) as the titular author. The first teaser trailer has arrived, and it looks like it will be Tolkien’s own Finding Neverland, mixing the biographical elements of his life with flashes to the fantasy worlds that the author seemingly imagined himself in.

Extremely Wicked Shockingly Evil and Vile Review

What if someone you loved, someone you thought you knew, someone who seemed so charming and caring, turned out to be an absolute monster? Would you immediately believe it – or would you deny the horrible truth with every fiber of your being? It’s hard to know the answer to that question if it’s never happened to you. An outsider might assume that accepting the truth would be cut and dry. But life doesn’t work that way. And the truth can be a slippery thing.

For four years, Ted Bundy cut a bloody path across America, brutally murdering young women in unspeakable ways. He did it brazenly, not even bothering to use a pseudonym when approaching potential victims in public. He was so entirely sure of his own charm that even when he was captured, and the evidence was stacked against him, he seemed absolutely certain he’d be set free. After all, who could believe a man like Ted Bundy could be a serial killer? That’s the question at the heart of Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a portrait not just of Bundy, but of the people around him – the people who failed to recognize his true, terrible nature.

Okja looks like it will be a very weird movie. And while fans of director Bong Joon-ho, the mind behind riveting sci-fi features like Snowpiercer and The Host, couldn’t eat that up more, it may take a little more to sell the casual Netflix viewer on the latest film from one of the greatest living filmmakers on the planet.
