Michael B Jordan cranks it up to Fahrenheit 451 – or some better pun about fire. New trailer for HBO movie!

Synopsis: “In a terrifying care-free future, a young man, Guy Montag, whose job as a fireman is to burn all books, questions his actions after meeting a young girl…and begins to rebel against society.”

Based the classic novel, HBO brings Fahrenheit 451 to the small-ish screen with Michael B Jordan up front. Along with Jordan are Michael Shannon and Sofia Boutella (The Mummy, Atomic Blonde) and is directed by Ramin Bahrani who did that other Michael Shannon movie with a number in the title – 99 Homes.

This trailer looks pretty intense and with Jordan being the new hot property (hot…like as in FIRE but also he’s really popular…because its a movie about burning bo-….nevermind) in Hollywood after Creed and Black Panther this is definitely one too keep your eye on when it hits HBO in May.
