The first trailer for HBO’s “Fahrenheit 451” has been released, starring Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon. Based on the book of the same name, the film is set in a future in which books are banned, and firemen have to burn them if found.
Fun fact, Faherenheit 451 is the temperature in which books can catch fire and burn, hence the name of the book.
Watch the trailer above and see the film on HBO in May.
Fahrenheit 451 is based on Ray Bradbury’s classic novel. In a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and “firemen” burn books, Jordan plays Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as law enforcer and with his “mentor”, played by Shannon. Premieres Spring 2018 on HBO.
