Michael Shannon and Michale B. Jordan in Fahrenheit 451

HBO drops a fiery new teaser for Fahrenheit 451, starring Michael B. Jordan as a dystopian fireman. Jordan’s co-star Michael Shannon promises a “dark, gritty” take on Ray Bradbury’s classic story. Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s Laura Harrier and The Mummy‘s Sofia Boutella also star. Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes) directed the TV movie and also wrote the script.

Guy Montag (Jordan) lives the dream in a future where those in power use the media to control the minds of the people. In this world, books are outlawed to prevent the spread of subversive ideas. Montag works as a fireman…not putting fires out, but burning books. When Montag meets a free-thinking young woman named Clarisse (Boutella), he begins to question the rules of this oppressive society. Montag’s own increasingly subversive activities put him in conflict with his supervisor Beatty (Shannon).
