HBO Now’s much-anticipated Fahrenheit 451, starring Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon, leads the list of noteworthy streaming releases in May. The film is based on Ray Bradbury’s classic sci-fi novel of the same name, set in the future where history is rewritten and firemen burn books.
Amazon Prime’s Last Flag Flying, available May 4, stars Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne and Steve Carell. Thirty years after serving in Vietnam, three friends — one former Navy, another a former Marine, and the third a reverend– come together to bury their friend’s son.
