We have teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox Film for a VERY special competition - the chance to win two tickets to the Tolkien premiere in London on April 29.

This competition is now closed. The winner is Conor Murray.

As well as tickets to the premiere, the prize includes hotel and flights for the lucky winner plus their guest.

Tolkien stars Nicholas Hoult as the famed writer J. R. R. Tolkien and explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a fellow group of outcasts at school.

This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the "fellowship" apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning a trip to London for the premiere of Tolkien, please answer the following question:

Who plays writer J. R. R. Tolkien in the new biographical film Tolkien?

Send the answer along with your name and phone number to entertainmentonline@rte.ie with 'Tolkien Competition' in the subject line. One entry per person. You must be over the age of 18 to enter.
