HBO Has Released a Great New Trailer For FAHRENHEIT 451
"We are not born equal. We must be made equal by the fire, and then we can be happy."
HBO has released another fantastic new trailer for their upcoming film adaptation of Ray Bradbury's 1953 dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451. This movie looks great and it doesn't hurt that it has an incredible cast that includes Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther, Creed) and Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water, Man of Steel) in the lead roles.
The film is being directed by Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes), and the story takes place in a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and "firemen" burn books.
Jordan plays the character Montag, "a young fireman who forsakes his world and struggles to regain his humanity as he battles his mentor, fire captain Beatty", who is played by Shannon. Sofia Boutella (The Mummy, Kingsman: The Secret Service) also stars in the film as Clarisse, "an informant caught between the competing interests of Montag and Beatty."
The cast also includes Lilly Singh (Bad Moms) as Raven, "a tabloid reporter who works with the fire department to spread the ministry’s propaganda by broadcasting its book-burning raids to fans."
The film will be released in May on HBO. Enjoy the new trailer!
