Fahrenheit 451 Trailer

"A little knowledge is a dangerous thing." This is a must watch! HBO has unveiled the first teaser trailer for their new adaptation of the novel Fahrenheit 451, directed by filmmaker Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo, At Any Price, 99 Homes). Adapted directly from Ray Bradbury's seminal work about a dystopian book-burning future America (which was made into a film in 1966), this version stars Michael B. Jordan as Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as a law enforcer. The full cast also includes Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella, Keir Dullea, Chris Gleason, Martin Donovan, Lilly Singh, Grace Lynn Kung, Joe Pingue, and Sean Jones. This looks so damn good, way better than I was expecting it to look. I'm fully ready for this, and I feel like Bahrani might've been the perfect director for it after all. Fire this up.

Here's the first official teaser trailer for Ramin Bahrani's Fahrenheit 451, direct from HBO's YouTube:

Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 is based on Ray Bradbury's classic novel. In a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and "firemen" burn books, Jordan plays Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as law enforcer and with his "mentor", played by Shannon. Fahrenheit 451 is directed by acclaimed American indie filmmaker Ramin Bahrani, of the films Strangers, Man Push Cart, Chop Shop, Goodbye Solo, At Any Price, and 99 Homes previously. The screenplay is also written by Ramin Bahrani, with Amir Naderi, adapted from Ray Bradbury's novel of the same name - first published in 1953. HBO Films will be releasing Ramin Bahrani's new adaptation of Fahrenheit 451 exclusively on their service, but no exact date is set yet. Expected in spring 2018. Stay tuned for additional updates. First impression? Who's in already?

looks dumb

Well, this story hardly can relate to today's audience, they just don't get the point. Besides, the book and the older film did it good. To be engaging enough, it will need more than menacing Michael Shannon or Michalel Jordan as a hero...

Same here. what's the point to burn books in the era of digital content? Lazy writing.

Huh...? Really? C'mon... It's based on a book! This is too much over-analysis.

Not really. they took a brilliant metaphor and turned it into action movie. In the era of metanet and digital content, they should have tried another approach, like burning cells, tablets and computers... ;D I am reading Game of thrones on my tablet, so they can burn all the books they want.

First off, you haven't seen this movie yet, so this is pretty harsh judgement for something you've barely seen 60 seconds of? Second, sure, but maybe that metaphor works just as well with today's world without having to digitize everything. Third, I am pretty sure people will still be reading printed paper books 100 years from now. Seriously, they're not going away.

It's not a harsh judgement, it's a statement. Go burn a book nowadays and Millenials will laugh their A.O at you. They simply don't care. Burn their iPhones and welcome to the (Matrix) Revolution. ;D

Sorry, you spelled 1000 years from now wrong ... Just saying ...

Yeah definitely over analysing. Who knows they could be controlling what people see on the internet as well. China does that well. You don't know until you see the movie.

Hey tarek. I would say, lazy overwriting of the old and good idea in some other, lazy times. But, I think you're wrong about the books. They are still something which means reading and understanding, and I mean a paperback. Digital books and digital technology gives me means to handle books and ideas, which is less than understanding them. As long there are printed books, we have critical awareness,And who cares about Millenials, they are just a sect in the world where so many people still wants a change. I'm bold enough to say, printed books are the media that will teach people more than the digital ones. They succeeded for hundreds years. What's another thousand years? Nothing ... Cheers ...

Definitely no need to remake the film/to put a book on the screen or to upgrade it with some digital quality. The essence is somewhere else. Truffaut/Julie Christie film isn't just a good film, it has the quality of catching the right moment in history to be that kind of film. This one is lost and in fact looks, despite the whole digital background, historically outmoded and misplaced. If there's any idea left to be developed here, it needs much more narrative upgrading which I don't see. In fact, I don't see a good reason for that either. This is some other time and some other dilemmas are in other. The ones I don't see in here. Anyway, good reply Bo. As always. Cheers ...

I agree too, of course. I just see other consequences of it. But let's see what becomes of it. Although, all three of us very well know that nothing interesting will come of it. Unfortunately. Cheers Bo ...

Yeah, it's valid in the time of digital media ...

DIG!!!!

Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon?!? YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH TWO MICHAELS! Also too bad they didn't get in on that Tesla flamethrower deal....

I can't stand Michael B. Jordan's expressionless face. ;D

tarek on Feb 27, 2018

17

Is that sarcasm?....I can't tell if you're kidding....

THE_RAW_ on Feb 28, 2018

No it wasn't Raw. I wasn't joking alas. He's the black version of Ryan Gosling, except Ryan looks stoned all the time and Michael looks angry all the time. ;D

tarek on Mar 1, 2018

Haha! Well alrighty then. Ryan Gosling is hit or miss for me. However, I've liked Michael B. Jordan since Chronicle, although I've only seen him in Fantastic Four (which....was pretty terrible after they got their powers) and now Black Panther. I've been told CREED is solid, I'm just not much of a fan of the Rocky franchise. I have other viewing priorities currently.

THE_RAW_ on Mar 2, 2018

Fantastic 4 sucked hard indeed. ;D As for creed, well, it didn't work for me, but you could enjoy it. It's Man of Steel of Boxe, that is, I am angry at the world because my dad is dead.

tarek on Mar 2, 2018

Creed is on the list....but yeah...not really interested. Thanks for the synopsis!

Hmm, looks interesting. Got some real Netflixian type vibes from this. And I could watch almost anything with Michael B. in it. Plus Michael Shannon too.
