HBO Films Shares Trailer For FARENHEIT 451

HBO Films Shares Trailer For FARENHEIT 451

It was directed by Ramin Bahrani from a script he wrote with Amir Naderi.

Michael Shannon of Shape of Water fame will play Jordan's mentor Beatty.

I don't want to focus so much on [President Donald Trump] because I don't want to excuse the 30 to 40 years prior to that; he's just an exaggeration of it now.

Jordan ("Black Panther", "The Wire") and Michael Shannon ("Man of Steel", "Boardwalk Empire") star in the new version of Bradbury's 1953 novel about a future where books are outlawed.

"Between the technological advancements in last 20 years and politics, I think Bradbury's biggest concern about the erosion of culture is now... and the speed at which this is advancing is exponential".

The movie has no release date yet, but stars Michael B. Jordan (of Creed and Fruitvale Station) as Montag and Michael Shannon as his fire captain, Beatty.

How Michael B. Jordan-Starring Fahrenheit 451 Adaptation Is Updated for the Modern Day

"Bradbury's novel was set in the future where he was predicting having screens on the wall that you could interact with", Bahrani told the Reporter.

While the whole book-burning conceit might seem quaint today, because you can always read them on your "super computer in your pocket, Bahrani said, Bradbury's prophetic themes are, more relevant today". "I think we've been going in that direction for a long time, it's just now kind of being revealed to us more clearly".

"When you do an adaptation, you're going to change things", Bahrani said.

One critic wanted to know how he decided which books to burn in those sequences, and if he picked books that meant a lot to him, entirely missing the point of the novel and of Bahrani. "One of the things in the film is storing knowledge, books in DNA". Social media and supercomputers like my phone are real now.

In a new teaser for Fahrenheit 451 which debuts on HBO this spring, we see a copy of Crime and Punishment set on fire atop a pile of books that also includes titles like Lolita and Things Fall Apart. This exists now. All your drives could be stored 100-fold in DNA. He thought all that would destroy concepts of thinking, reading and knowledge. "He was anxious about reader's digest, he was concerned about quick short soundbites". Bradbury says we've asked for this.
