"Black Panther" star Michael B. Jordan says he wants to 'burn" in the first official trailer for HBO's new hotly-anticipated science-fiction drama "Fahrenheit 451," which is based on Ray Bradbury's groundbreaking 1953 novel of the same name.

Also starring The Shape of Water's Michael Shannon, the thought-provoking cable movie is set in a dystopian future where an authoritarian American government has banned books in an effort to suppress dissenting ideas. With a new system of policing in place, "Firemen," newly certified officers, have been given the authority to seek out and burn the last remaining books in America.

Jordan plays a young fireman recruit, named Guy Montag, who, privately, begins to second-guess his job and disagree with the government's decision to burn books. Though the slightest hint of a difference of opinion could cost him dearly. Meanwhile, Shannon plays Captain Beatty, Guy's mentor and tough-minded boss.

Developed into a HBO original movie by filmmaker Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes, Man Push Cart), who both writes and directs, "Fahrenheit 451" also stars Sofia Boutella (The Mummy, Star Trek: Beyond), Martin Donovan (Ant-Man), Laura Harrier (Spider-Man: Homecoming), YouTube star Lilly Singh, Grace Lynn Kung (TV's Mary Kills People), and veteran actor Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey).

"Fahrenheit 451" will be released sometime in the spring on HBO.

Fahrenheit 451 is based on Ray Bradbury's classic novel. 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.
