HBO has released a new Fahrenheit 451 trailer. Written and directed by Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes), with co-writer Amir Naderi, the TV movie stars Michael B. Jordan as protagonist/fireman Guy Montag alongside Michael Shannon as his boss, Captain Beatty. Based on the book by Ray Bradbury, the film follows Montag, who burns books until he starts questioning what his work means for society.
The movie looks terrific and a clever update of Bradbury’s source material. And yet I can’t help but feel a bit saddened that the film has been relegated to HBO. Yes, a film that’s an adaptation of a classic sci-fi book about burning books isn’t going to make a billion dollars worldwide. But ten years ago, a movie with this kind of star power and based a book that everyone has to read in middle school would undoubtedly receive a theatrical release. Instead, we’re going to have to watch it at home. That’s a bit disappointing, but I’m still eager to see Bahrani’s take on the material.
