Lily cut a stylish figure for their joint appearance to promote the film, donning a flowing black coat which she paired with an orange turtle-neck jumper.

She also wore dark, slim-fitting trousers and added height to her frame with a pair of black heels.

Styling her brunette locks into loose waves, Lily looked in high spirits as she waved to fans on her way into the studio.

The first trailer for the film was released in February, and opens with Lily narrating over a scene of the author as a child, as she asks him: ‘Tell me a story.’

Scenes show Tolkien grow from boy to man, as he can be heard saying: ‘It’s a story about journeys, the journeys we take to prove ourselves.’ 

The film echoes Tolkien and Bratt’s real-life love story. They met and fell in love when the author was just 16 and she was three years his senior.

His guardian asked him to wait until he was 21 to pursue the romance as he believed he had been paying less attention at school due to love and didn’t like that Edith was a Protestant and not a Catholic.

Tolkien begrudgingly obeyed the instruction and wrote to Edith on the evening of his 21st birthday with a proposal but discovered she was engaged to another man.

Edith didn’t think Tolkien loved her any more and was worried about being left on the shelf, but she admitted the letter had changed everything for her.

She returned the ring and she and Tolkien married, with Edith converting to Catholicism and being thrown out of her home as a result.

The statement said: ‘The family of JRR Tolkien and the Tolkien Estate are aware of the Fox Searchlight motion picture entitled Tolkien that is due for release in May 2019.

‘The family and the Estate wish to make clear that they did not approve of, authorise or participate in the making of this film.

‘They do not endorse it or its content in any way.’

A spokesperson for Fox Searchlight Pictures told MailOnline: ‘We are so proud of Dome Karukoski’s film TOLKIEN which focuses on the early years of J.R.R. Tolkien’s extraordinary life and does not depict subject matter from his novels.

‘While we did not work with the Tolkien Estate on this project, the filmmaking team has the utmost respect and admiration for Mr. Tolkien and his phenomenal contribution to literature.’
