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

Writer Ray Bradbury's 1953 novel, Fahrenheit 451, brings to life a dystopian American society where history is being rewritten and television reigns supreme, while literature is being forced to the brink of extinction by "firemen" tasked with burning books. "It fulfills the mission of the Alternative Truth Project, which is to raise some questions about our political and social situation".

In the movie, Michael B. Jordan plays Guy Montag, a fireman who suddenly becomes disillusioned with his role of censoring writing and destroying knowledge after he meets a rebellious young girl.

We could make any number of fire-based puns to usher in the intense first teaser for HBO's upcoming Fahrenheit 451 film, like "it's going to be lit", or "things are really heating up", but we'll keep it simple and say that it'll undoubtedly ignite your excitement. It follows Guy Montag, a firefighter whose job is to burn those contraband books. Numerous book's details proved prescient, including its depiction of how television would come to rule people's lives.

The firemen are aided by robotic "hounds", that can sniff out book lovers and pursue them should they flee, injecting a tranquilizer with their bites.

When Bradbury wrote the book, he expressed concern about the freedom of information and affiliation, Cherne explained. In many ways, the real world of modern media goes far beyond anything the uncannily seer-like Bradbury envisioned.

There is some hope embedded in Bradbury's tale. To take them and modernize them. Montag, after a crisis of conscience, seeks this group out. 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. But of course the movie will be a whole lot more than that.

In addition, Cherne said, members of the cast will provide sound effects to accompany the action in the play, such as the sound of approaching sirens or robotic hounds.

"I think it's pretty obvious, right?" "I think it'll be both exciting and amusing in a way", Cherne said.

"We should not distinguish between good and bad books", he criticized.
