HBO's Fahrenheit 451 Teaser Trailer Fires Up Excitement [VIDEO]


The teaser trailer for HBO's Fahrenheit 451 has hit the internet and looks pretty amazing. I'll have a hard time putting Fran├žois Truffaut's 1966 vision of Ray Bradbury's novel aside as I love it so much. I'm willing to give it a chance, though.

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, Jordan plays Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as law enforcer and with his "mentor", played by Shannon. Premieres Spring 2018 on HBO.

Original Graphic Novel Transformers: Bumblebee Coming in September


IDW Publishing is thrilled to announce that in 2018 Bumblebee from the TRANSFORMERS franchise will star in his very own original graphic novel! The perfect jumping on point for the next generation of TRANSFORMERS fans, Transformers: Bumblebee – Win If You Dare gives readers the opportunity to join in the fan-favorite character’s adventures. Life can feel rough when you aren't the fastest or the tallest Autobot, but Bumblebee is up to the task!

When his best friend is hurt, Bumblebee takes it upon himself to finish the mission—and prove his worth to his fellow Autobots along the way. Things get tense as Bumblebee and a new human friend infiltrate a series of incredible races, hunting down dangerous foes and a devastating secret. It's an exciting new, action-packed '80s adventure! X-Men '92 co-writers Chad Bowers and Chris Sims along with artist Marcelo Ferreira (Back to the Future, Transformers: Windblade) have crafted a nostalgia-tinged, yet equally fresh standalone story.


"The exciting thing about this book is that it really hits all the highs of TRANSFORMERS for fans new and old," said IDW Associate Editor, David Mariotte. "It has action, adventure, racing and robots, but it also has a lot of heart and humor that comes through in this simultaneously retro and very modern package."

“This story is just a ton of fun,” said Michael Kelly, head of publishing at Hasbro. “Bumblebee is the ultimate underdog, and everyone loves an underdog. IDW has done a fantastic job bringing this iconic character to life for a new generation of fans.”

This new OGN will be available in comic shops and book stores September 11, 2018 for $9.99.

See a Preview Image from The Death of Superman Animated Movie


"A preview image from the upcoming The Death of Superman animated movie is featured on the iTunes Extras page for the Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay animated feature. Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay will hit April 10, 2018 to Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD, and March 27, 2018 to Digital HD. No official details for The Death of Superman have been released as of yet, but that is expected to change in the coming weeks. Early details – including a trailer, cast, creative team and release date – are expected to be announced shortly."


I'm not really seeing anything too off the beaten path here that veers far from what we've seen before. Superman is wearing his New 52 outfit and looks rather young. I can't remember if this film and its sequel, The Reign of Supermen, are going to be within the established DC Animated Universe or stand-alone movies. Either way, I'm sure it will be a better adaptation than the watered-down version we got in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
