Any Ray Bradbury fans out there? Here’s HBO’s just-released Fahrenheit 451 trailer, based on Bradbury’s 1953 dystopian novel about book burning and censorship.
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.
Black Panther‘s Michael B. Jordan stars as the book’s protagonist, fireman-turned-rebel Guy Montag, while his “mentor,” fire captain Beatty, is played by The Shape of Water‘s Michael Shannon. The movie will hit HBO this May.
It was a pleasure to burn.
