Watch the trailer for HBO’s upcoming adaptation of Fahrenheit 451
HBO is releasing their adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s classic work “Fahrenheit 451” in May of this year, and today they released a brand new trailer. The TV film stars Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station, Black Panther) and Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water, Revolutionary Road). This is one of those books that likely scared the crap out of you when you read it in school. If you didn’t, do it now. Much like “1984” and “The Handmaid’s Tale,” modern retellings of these horrifying stories are appropriate now, with what’s going on in the world. Considering the cast, this one promises to be just about perfect. You can check out the trailer for HBO’s Fahrenheit 451 below.
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.
