Fahrenheit 451 Trailer

Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon come hot off Black Panther and The Shape of Water, but you don’t need to leave the house to see their new movie. Fahrenheit 451 premieres on HBO this weekend, an adaptation of the Ray Bradbury classic. Ramin Bahrani adapted and directed the film.

Shannon plays Beatty and Jordan plays Montag, two “firemen” in a future where the government burns books. This future is more of an extension of our present than perhaps the Bradbury novel, as the firemen also deal with cloud uploads and screens connected to central networks. Bahrani spoke with /Film by phone about Fahrenheit 451 this week. The film premieres Saturday, May 19 at 8PM on HBO.
