Fahrenheit 451 Official Teaser Trailer

Everyone’s probably come across Fahrenheit 451 at some point in their lives. The novel presents a future American society where books are outlawed and “firemen” burn any that are found. After a film adaptation over 50 years ago, it’s about time that we get a new modern adaptation of the dystopian novel and what better place for it than HBO? This new version has quite the formidable cast with Michael B. Jordan, fresh off Black Panther, and the always solid Michael Shannon. I haven’t read the book or seen the 1966 version so this will definitely be something to look out for once it premieres on HBO sometime in May.

  1. The 1966 version didn’t age well and really disappointed me when I finally got to see it somewhere in the mid nineties when I was in my mid twenties. But even then the film was 25 or so years old and so it’s not surprising. I was also comparing it to the book, which I did enjoy. After all the years a reboot will be nice and I’m curious to see if it does a better job of putting the feelings generated by the book to the big screen.
