The trailer for Tolkien was released today - it’s the biopic that tells of a quiet, peaceful, solitary soul, called to a great adventure known as World War I. It’s clear that this movie is about how real events shaped the fantasy world of Middle-Earth that Tolkien would create upon his return home. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/Girzu81oS8Q

I also briefly discuss Rod Serling tonight, since he too brought back his experiences from war - in his case, World War II - which greatly influenced, among other things, The Twilight Zone.
