HBO has released the first teaser for Fahrenheit 451, a film based off the Ray Bradbury novel and starring Michael B. Jordan as a rebel in a dystopia that burns books. Like other dystopic narratives – did you not watch The Handmaid’s Tale? – Fahrenheit 451 feels uncomfortably close to reality in 2018 (see also: the Trump administration blustering about censorship and “fire and fury”).

It’s full of slow-motion takes and images of fire that make everything else seem much darker in contrast. Along with Jordan, the film will star Michael Shannon as its antagonist (naturally), Sofia Boutella, and YouTuber Lilly Singh. “I have always loved Ray Bradbury’s prophetic novel Fahrenheit 451,” writer-director Ramin Bahrani said in a press release from HBO. “Two years ago, as I looked at the world around me, it seemed like the ideal time to do a modern interpretation. I am grateful to HBO for helping me bring my vision of the film to audiences with this incredible cast.” The film does not have a release date yet but is expected to debut in spring.
