HBO's new teaser for 'Fahrenheit 451' movie blazes to life

Fahrenheit451_1

The story takes place in an unspecified time in the future of America where books have been outlawed and "firemen" have the responsibility to burn any that are found.

In a new teaser for Fahrenheit 451 which debuts on HBO this spring, we see a copy of Crime and Punishment set on fire atop a pile of books that also includes titles like Lolita and Things Fall Apart. Eventually, Montag turns his back on the world he knows and goes toe-to-toe with his near-inhumane mentor, fire captain Beatty, played by Michael Shannon.

"It was daunting to take on Bradbury because he's such a genius and a legend".

Ray Bradbury's 1953 novel Fahrenheit 451 is a classic piece of literature that has stood the test of time.

"We started working on this a year before the election", Bahrani said. Conflict between a government censorship diehard and the flamethrowing fireman who isn't quite sold will run rampant in the TV movie written and directed by Bahrani, who has plenty of thoughts on how to keep the sci-fi story relevant.

"We are electing this thing in my pocket", Bahrani said, pulling out his smartphone.

"I will never forget reading it as a kid", explained Boutella, "it gives you an alternative way of thinking". Between the technological advancements in the last 20 years and politics, Bradbury's biggest concern about the erosion of culture is now.

Bradbury's novel was set in the future where he was predicting having screens on the wall that you could interact with. There was no reason to put it in the future; it's just [set in] a unusual tomorrow.

"It's not hard to control what is on the internet given that things are so centralized", he said. Bradbury was concerned about mass entertainment - Reader's Digest, short soundbites.

But tweets and wiki entries are even shorter version of Readers Digest, and "We are all guilty of reading only headlines", he told the mostly online press in the hall. Bradbury says we've asked for this.

Fahrenheit 451 doesn't have an official release date yet, but it's said to be dropping sometime in the United States spring, which should be around April or May.
