At the end of February, we shared the teaser for HBO Films' Fahrenheit 451, but have you seen the official trailer? It came out last week, and has us even more excited for May 19, when it premieres on HBO at 8 p.m. ET.

The film is based on the classic by Ray Bradbury, and takes place in a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and "firemen" burn books.

Michael B. Jordan plays Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as law enforcer and with his "mentor," played by Michael Shannon.
