Legion M and Fox Searchlight Pictures Forge Fellowship for the New Film “Tolkien”

Inspired by the Real-Life Story of J.R.R. Tolkien 

Legion M and Fox Searchlight Pictures are forming a fan-driven “fellowship” to celebrate the new film “Tolkien,” inspired by the real-life story of J.R.R. Tolkien, debuting at theaters nationwide starting May 10.

The Legion’s more than 75,000 members will demonstrate the true power of fandom through a passionate and fully engaged social media and in-theater grassroots campaign, culminating with hundreds of “Tolkien” fan-led meetups at theaters across the country during the film’s opening weekend. The meetups will eventize “Tolkien” screenings, giving fans of the iconic author a unique community viewing experience featuring an exclusive item related to the film. 

Check out Nicholas Hoult himself welcoming the Legion to "Tolkien" in the following exclusive video.
