HBO has released a teaser trailer for its upcoming film, “Fahrenheit 451” starring “Black Panther” actor Michael B. Jordan.

As previously reported, the Ray Bradbury classic takes a grim look at a totalitarian future, where firemen have taken on a new duty of starting fires instead of putting them out (complete with flame throwers). Their goal is to burn all books, as way of suppressing independent thought and action in the public. The film’s story centers around a young fireman, Guy Montag (Jordan), who finds himself questioning his job, even as he encounters an odd young woman, and learns about an underground of rebels who each memorize the entire contents of a book, so that they can preserve it even without the use of paper.

The project also stars Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella, Laura Harrier, Grace Lynn Kung, Jane Moffat and more.

“Fahrenheit 451″ is directed by Ramin Bahrani.
