Following a brief logo teaser back in January, HBO has now unveiled the first full trailer for “Fahrenheit 451,” its upcoming original film adaptation of the iconic Ray Bradbury novel.
Directed by Ramin Bahrani (“99 Homes”) and written by Bahrani & Amir Naderi, the story depicts a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and ‘firemen’ burn books.
Michael B. Jordan portrays Montag, a young fireman who forsakes his world and struggles to regain his humanity as he battles his mentor, fire captain Beatty (Michael Shannon). Sofia Boutella also stars.
The film debuts this spring, exclusively on HBO.
