Hot Michael B. Jordan in New “Fahrenheit 451” HBO Dystopia Movie – Here’s What To Expect

359

We haven’t cooled down yet after Michael B. Jordan’s “Black Panther” role and now we got one more exciting trailer for the adaptation of the Ray Bradbury classic.

Keep on reading to know what to expect.

What is it about?

The new HBO movie is based on Ray Bradbury’s 1953 dystopian novel of the same name. It is a futuristic story about the society where books are burned to censor and destroy knowledge.

Michael B. Jordan plays a fireman Guy Montag, whose job is to burn books.

“A little knowledge is a dangerous thing — news, facts, memoirs, internet of old. Burn it,” says Shannon, who plays Jordan’s fire captain, says in the trailer. “We are not born equal, so we must be made equal by the fire.”

Wonderful Michael B. Jordan

Beloved “Black Panther” antagonist Michael B. Jordan will play a leading role as a “fireman” Guy Montag who starts having doubts about his job and the order in which he lives. His mentor-turned-nemesis is played by the perennially evil Michael Shannon.

Moreover, Jordan served as an executive producer on the project, producing through his Outlier Productions.

The film is directed by Ramin Bahrani and also stars Sofia Boutella, Lilly Singh, Laura Harrier, and Martin Donovan.

“I have always loved Ray Bradbury’s prophetic novel…two years ago, as I looked at the world around me, it seemed like the ideal time to do a modern interpretation. I am grateful to HBO for helping me bring my vision of the film to audiences with this incredible cast,” said the director.

Dystopian style

Actually, it’s not the first time Bradbury’s story has been adapted, as it was previously made into a 1966 British film, a 1979 play, a 1984 video game, and a collection of short stories by the author, titled “A Pleasure to Burn.”

Still, there’s a strong feeling this time it’s going to be a success.

American dystopia with dark, chilling and Blade Runner style cityscapes combining with people in virtual-reality headsets make us believe we got in a near American future.
