'Fahrenheit 451' teaser and first look images get intense makeover

'Fahrenheit 451' teaser and first look images get intense makeover

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

Bradbury's novel unfortunately found very real world inspiration in things like the Nazi book burnings in WWII (I've been privileged enough to visit the memorial to this horrific act, and I won't lie, it was a rather emotional experience for a bibliophile like me), but it's also incredibly political, addressing things like freedom of speech and ideas, and the government controlling what you know.

They're gone, Bahrani said when asked where are the checks and balances. Also, "we are electing again this thing in my pocket", he said, pulling out his smartphone.

HBO has released the first teaser for Fahrenheit 451, the upcoming film adaptation of the Ray Bradbury novel starring Michael B. Jordan, Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella and Lilly Singh. Social media and supercomputers like my phone are real now. "We are electing to give it all away to this". Bahrani was instantly drawn to the material's relevance to our modern times, even with the advent of the internet since the source material was written-which certainly changes how you have to navigate the issues held within the text. Between the technological advancements in the last 20 years and politics, Bradbury's biggest concern about the erosion of culture is now.

"I think it's pretty obvious, right?"

Trump administration proposes new offshore drilling plan
The Trump administration's plan would open 90 percent of the nation's offshore reserves to development by private companies. Scott is an ally of President Trump, and the state is also home to Trump's winter resort at Mar-a-Lago.

"We started working on this a year before the election", Bahrani said.

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

In the footage from the new movie, which debuts this spring on HBO, Shannon's character Beatty - the movie's villain as Jordan's Guy Montag comes to side with the pro-knowledge resistance - says harrowing lines that remain just as resonant and terrifying in today's world as they would have been when Fahrenheit 451 was published in 1953. It's just now kind of being revealed to us more clearly. This is the story we are set to see in HBO's latest Television Movie, Farenheit 451, which is set to be a gritty take on Ray Bradbury's classic tale.
