With the term "fake news" seemingly used daily, it seems particularly apropos that HBO has just released a trailer for their forthcoming film, Fahrenheit 451, which is based on Ray Bradbury’s classic 1953 tale, and depicts a dystopian future where the media is an opiate, history is outlawed, and “firemen” burn books.

Starring Michael B. Jordan as Guy Montag, a morally conflicted book burner, the drama escalates as he's forced to reckon with his mentor who is played by Academy Award nominee, Michael Shannon, who believes, "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing,” and that, "we are not born equal, so we must be made equal by the fire."

Fahrenheit 451 will premiere in May on HBO.

For more recommended viewing, here is everything coming to and leaving Netflix in March.
