Based on Ray Bradbury's classic novel, Fahrenheit 451 takes place in a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and "firemen" burn books.

Michael B. Jordan plays Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as law enforcer and with his "mentor," played by Michael Shannon.

The film premieres on HBO this May, but in the meantime, check out the recently released official teaser trailer above.
