HBO’s Fahrenheit 451

HBO’s Fahrenheit 451 trailer showcases what happens when literature is banned

This past February we got to see a teaser trailer for HBO’s upcoming Fahrenheit 451 adaptation. Now they’ve released a full-length trailer for the TV film and it is definitely awe-worthy.

The film is based on Ray Bradbury’s 1953 literary classic, Fahrenheit 451. The novel has been adapted several times over the years, most notably Francois Truffaut’s 1966 film, and has been met with mixed criticisms.

The official synopsis for the film is below:

In the distant future, books are banned and ordered burned and firemen are charged with this responsibility. Guy Montag is one of them: he goes about his work without questioning motives, believing he is helping out with the end of seeking knowledge. All this changes when he meets another person who makes him challenge his actions and convictions.

The cast consists of Michael B. Jordan, who is playing Guy Montag, a 30-year-old fireman. He is joined by Michael Shannon, Laura Harrier, Sofia Boutella, Khandi Alexander, and Lilly Singh.

Ramin Bahrani is directing as well as co-writing the adaptation along with Amir Naderi.  Jordan is also executive producing the project through his Outlier Productions.

The movie will be released on HBO on May 19, 2018. Make sure you watch the trailer below and let us know what you think:
