"Fahrenheit 451" EP on Bradbury Classic's Relevance Today: "We Asked for This"

The HBO PR Twitter handle (not to be confused with the regular ol' HBO Twitter handle, I guess) just dropped three new images from Ramin Bahrani's forthcoming adaptation of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, and they are.

Along with Jordan, the film will star Michael Shannon as its antagonist (naturally), Sofia Boutella, and YouTuber Lilly Singh.

Based on Ray Bradbury's classic novel, the TV film depicts a future where media is an opiate, history is outlawed and "firemen" burn books.

"Between technological advancements and politics, I think Bradbury's biggest concern is now".

Pep Guardiola Breaks Another Premier League Record
Saints threatened to report Liverpool to the Premier League over an alleged illegal approach for Van Dijk and the Reds backed off. Leicester, which has both conceded and scored in 14 of 22 games, is even money on the goals line at +1.5.

Yes, there isn't much to the actual teaser, but thanks to THR we have some looks at the star-studded main cast of the film in Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Fruitvale Station), Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, Man of Steel), and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Mummy).

Bradbury's novel was set in the future where he was predicting having screens on the wall that you could interact with.

Unfortunately, Fahrenheit 451 feels more relevant today than anyone probably would've guessed upon publication.

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.

Trump unsurprisingly denies racist 'shithole' comment
He further argued that Trump's alleged comment "isn't just un-presidential and un-American, it's inhumane". "It's very frustrating", a senior White House aide told Politico.

The name for the novel came from the fact that Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which books burn. In the film, Guy not only is responsible for burning books, but also shutting down the people resisting the anti-knowledge government by uploading books to the Internet. There was no reason to put it in the future; it's just [set in] a unusual tomorrow. Readers Digest, quick short soundbites, destroying the concept of reading, thinking and knowledge, he said. "He was anxious about reader's digest, he was concerned about quick short soundbites".

Bahrani said he never had the opportunity to meet with Bradbury before his death but did an extensive amount of research, watching and reading multiple interviews and more. That goes to what one of the things I think is different between Bradbury's novel and 1984.

"We are not born equal, we must be made equal by the fire, and then we can be happy", Beatty says in one scene. The exact release date is yet to be declared.
