'Fahrenheit 451' Teaser Trailer: Ray Bradbury's Dystopian Future Is Coming to HBO

'Fahrenheit 451' Teaser Trailer: Ray Bradbury's Dystopian Future Is Coming to HBO”

"Politically things are going in a very unusual direction in terms of what is real and what is not real", he continued.

Seeking to modernize the themes in Bradbury's 1953 novel - which revolve around the population's willing abandonment of knowledge - Bahrani said that where "Bradbury was concerned about mass entertainment and short sound bites", he is "with tweets and wiki entries".

Jordan, Sofia Boutella, and Michael Shannon, the film focuses on a future American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" burn any that are found. Jordan portrays lead character Montag, a young fireman who "forsakes his world and struggles to regain his humanity as he battles his mentor, fire captain Beatty, played by Shannon", HBO announced in a press release. "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".

"We are electing this thing in my pocket", Bahrani said, pulling out his smartphone. Between the technological advancements in the last 20 years and politics, Bradbury's biggest concern about the erosion of culture is now.

The film was directed by Ramin Bahrani of 99 Homes notoriety.

In the unlikely event that the words HBO and Fahrenheit 451 in close proximity to each other aren't enough to get you excited, perhaps the cast will. Michael B. Jordan will play Guy Montag, the young fireman who starts to realize that maybe he's in the wrong line of work. Social media and supercomputers like my phone are real now. "One of the things in the film is storing knowledge, books in DNA".

"It's not hard to control what is on the internet given that things are so centralized", he said. Readers Digest, quick short soundbites, destroying the concept of reading, thinking and knowledge, he said. We're all guilty about reading headlines.

"Bradbury said we asked for this".

Fahrenheit 451 doesn't have an official release date yet, but it's said to be dropping sometime in the U.S. spring, which should be around April or May.
