A Fiery Premiere in NYC

9 May 2018 - By TW Staff

Tuesday night saw the New York premiere of HBO Films' Fahrenheit 451 at New York University's Skirball Center, with an after-party at TAO Downtown.

Based on Ray Bradbury's classic novel, Fahrenheit 451 portrays a dark future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and "firemen" burn books.

HBO Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler and President, HBO Films Len Amato joined Director Ramin Bahrani and stars Michael B. Jordan, Michael Shannon, and Sofia Boutella for the screening, along with luminaries like Frances McDormand, Tessa Thompson, Isabella Rossellini, Trudie Styler, Edie Falco, Greg Kinnear, Maxwell and more.

Check out the official trailer below, and be sure to tune in to HBO Saturday, May 19 at 8 p.m. ET for the film's debut.
