Jordan plays one of the future firemen who torch the tomes, with Shannon as his captain.

In the footage from the new movie, which debuts this spring on HBO, Shannon's character Beatty - the movie's villain as Jordan's Guy Montag comes to side with the pro-knowledge resistance - says harrowing lines that remain just as resonant and terrifying in today's world as they would have been when Fahrenheit 451 was published in 1953.
