This amazing creation came from J.R.R Tolkien and now we are receiving a movie about his life.

The movie is simply titled 'Tolkien' and is basically a biopic of the mans life. Beginning as a young man in the heart of World War I, we will see actor Nicholas Hoult play the part of Tolkien, and how he began to be inspired with the creative thoughts of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings universe while being in the trenches in France.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the movie is also reported to touch on Tolkien's wife Edith Bratt who had significant influence in Tolkien's writings. The love story between Beren and Luthien in the book 'Beren and Luthien' is about a mortal man and immortal elf. This story is direct reference to Tolkien and Bratt, as on their joint gravestone they are referred to as Beren and Luthien. In the 'Tolkien' movie, Bratt will be played by Lily Collins. The director talking the helm will be Dome Karukoski. The Tolkien movie is expected to hit theatres on May 10th, 2019.

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
