Imagine a society where books are outlawed and “firemen” have been tasked to burn and destroy any remaining literature, erasing history right before our eyes. This is the reality in Fahrenheit 451, a jaw-dropping new HBO Film starring Michael B. Jordan (HBO’s The Wire, Black Panther) and Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon (Shape of Water), available on Digital Download June 18, 2018 and Blu-ray™ and DVD September 18, 2018.

Based on Ray Bradbury’s classic sci-fi novel of the same name, the thought-provoking parable depicts a frighteningly plausible future where media is an opiate, history is purged and dissent is outlawed. The dystopian thriller centers on Montag (Jordan), a young fireman who forsakes his world and struggles to regain his humanity as he battles his mentor, fire captain Beatty (Shannon).

 

Directed by Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes), Fahrenheit 451 also stars Sofia Boutella (The Mummy), Lily Singh (Bad Moms), Laura Harrier (Spider-Man Homecoming), Martin Donovan (Ant-Man), and more. Also executive produced by Sarah Green, Ramin Bahrani, Michael B. Jordan, Alan Gasmer, and Peter Jaysen.
