  • Books are burning in first Fahrenheit 451 film teaser

HBO started working on a modern film adaptation of Ray Bradbury's classic novel Fahrenheit 451 more than a year ago.

The Plot and Characters: Fahrenheit 451 is based on Ray Bradbury's classic novel of the same name, depicting a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and "firemen" burn books.

Yes, there isn't much to the actual teaser, but thanks to THR we have some looks at the star-studded main cast of the film in Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Fruitvale Station), Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, Man of Steel), and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Mummy).

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.

The trailer itself doesn't actually feature any footage from the movie itself but does give us a great idea of what we can expect, with the trailer featuring the dark imagery of books and knowledge set aflame. When director Ramin Bahrani took to adapt the story, his first big challenge to modernize it was to figure out how to make it still relevant in a time when all of the world's books can exist on the Internet on our smartphones. Jordan leads the film as Montag, "a young fireman who forsakes his world, battles his mentor and struggles to regain his humanity".

Finally, we have a photo of Sofia Boutella as Clarisse, an informant who "gets caught between the competing interests of Montag and Beatty".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO's Fahrenheit 451 will be along sometime this spring. "The speed at which [technology] is advancing, perhaps exponentially - I am concerned, are we going to be able to get ahead of the dam?"

"We're all guilty of just reading the headlines", the director concluded.

"We are not born equal, we must be made equal by the fire, and then we can be happy", Beatty says in one scene.

HBO's film "Fahrenheit 451" takes place in an "alternate tomorrow", Bahrani said, because numerous technologies Bradbury imagined are "right here, right now".
