Michael B. Jordan is on a roll this year with upcoming appearances in both Black Panther and Fahrenheit 451. On Friday, HBO revealed the intense trailer for the latter, a blazing sci-fi adaptation featuring both Jordan and Michael Shannon.
The trailer provides a fiery aesthetic as piles of books burn and shots of a fireman wearing the 451 insignia, further fueling the fire, are shown.
The film is directed by Ramin Bahrani, best known for his work on 99 Homes, and written by Bahrani and Amir Naderi. Based on a classic novel by Ray Bradbury, in which “firemen” burn sacred books in effort to rewrite history, it presents a somewhat alternate universe to viewers.
The film is expected to debut this spring exclusively on HBO. Check out the teaser below:
