Fahrenheit 451 (1966 film)
Fahrenheit 451 is a 1966 British dystopian drama film directed by François Truffaut and starring Oskar Werner, Julie Christie, Cyril Cusack. Based on the 1953 novel of the same name by Ray Bradbury, the film takes place in a controlled society in an oppressive future in which the government sends out firemen to destroy all literature to prevent revolution and thinking; this was Truffaut's first colour film as well as his only English-language film. At the 1966 Venice Film Festival, Fahrenheit 451 was nominated for the Golden Lion. In the future, a totalitarian government employs a force known as Firemen to seek out and destroy all literature, they have the power to search anyone, anywhere, at any time, burn any books they find. One of the firemen, Guy Montag, meets one of his neighbours, Clarisse, a young schoolteacher who may be fired due to her unorthodox views; the two have a discussion about his job, where she asks if he reads the books he burns. Curious, he begins to hide books in his house and read them, starting with Charles Dickens's David Copperfield.
This leads to conflict with his wife, more concerned with being popular enough to be a member of The Family, an interactive television programme that refers to its viewers as "cousins". At the house of an illegal book collector, the fire captain talks with Montag at length about how books make people unhappy and make them want to think they are better than others, considered anti-social; the book collector, an old woman, seen with Clarisse a few times during Montag's rides to and from work, refuses to leave her house, opting instead to burn herself and the house so she can die with her books. Returning home that day, Montag tries to tell Linda and her friends about the woman who martyred herself in the name of books and confronts them about knowing anything about what's going on in the world, calling them zombies and telling them they're just killing time instead of living life. Disturbed over Montag's behavior, Linda's friends try to leave but Montag stops them, by forcing them to sit and listen to him read a novel passage.
During the reading, one of Linda's friends breaks down crying, aware of the feelings she repressed over the years, while Linda's other friends leave in disgust over Montag's alleged cruelty and the sick content of the novel. That night, Montag dreams of Clarisse as the book collector; the same night, Clarisse's house is raided but she escapes through a trapdoor in the roof, thanks to her uncle. Montag breaks into the captain's office looking for information about the missing Clarisse and is caught but not punished. Montag meets with Clarisse and helps her break back into her house, to destroy papers that would bring the Firemen to others like her, she tells him of the "book people", a hidden sect of people who flout the law, each of whom have memorized a book to keep it alive. Montag tells the captain he is resigning but is convinced to go on one more call, which turns out to be Montag's house. Linda leaves the house, telling Montag that she couldn't live with his book obsession and leaves him to be punished by the Firemen.
Angrily, he destroys the television before setting fire to the books. The captain lectures him about the books and pulls a last book from Montag's coat, for which Montag kills him with the flamethrower, he escapes and finds the book people, where he views his "capture" on television, staged to keep the masses entertained and because the government doesn't want him to be known to be alive. Montag selects a book to memorise. Truffaut kept a detailed diary during the production and published in both French and English. In this diary, he called Fahrenheit 451 his "saddest and most difficult" film making experience because of intense conflicts between Werner and himself; the film was Universal Pictures' first European production. Julie Christie was cast as just Linda Montag, not both Linda and Clarisse; the part of Clarisse was offered to Jane Fonda. Tippi Hedren was considered but Hitchcock told Truffaut that she was not available. After much thought, Truffaut decided that the characters should not have a villain/hero relationship but rather be two sides of the same coin and cast Christie in both roles, although the idea came from the producer, Lewis M. Allen.
In an interview from 1998, Charles Aznavour said he was Truffaut's first choice to play the role given to Werner. Paul Newman, Peter O'Toole and Montgomery Clift were considered for the role of Montag. Laurence Olivier, Michael Redgrave and Sterling Hayden were considered for the role of the Captain, before Cyril Cusack was cast; the film was shot at Pinewood Studios in England, with the monorail exterior scene taken at the French SAFEGE test track, in Châteauneuf-sur-Loire near Orléans, France. The film featured the Alton housing estate in Roehampton, south London and Edgcumbe Park in Crowthorne, Berkshire; the final scene with the "Book People " reciting their chosen books was filmed at Black Park near Pinewood, in a rare and unexpected snowstorm that occurred on Julie Christie's birthday, 14 April 1966. The production work was done in French, as Truffaut spoke no English but co-wrote the screenplay with Jean-Louis Richard. Truffaut expressed disappointment with the stilted and unnatural English-language dialogue.
He was much happier with the version, d

Fahrenheit (roller coaster)
Fahrenheit is a steel roller coaster at Hersheypark in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Located in the Pioneer Frontier section of the park, the roller coaster opened on May 24, 2008, it features six inversions and became the steepest roller coaster in the world when it opened with its first drop of 97 degrees. Fahrenheit held the record until Steel Hawg at Indiana Beach, which featured a 111-degree drop, opened several weeks on July 5, it is now the 7th steepest roller coaster in the world. Fahrenheit was announced in a Hersheypark press release on September 27, 2007; the ride was one of two new attractions for the 2008 season. Fahrenheit was the first-ever roller coaster to gather hype through a viral marketing campaign; the campaign started as a post on coaster website ThrillNetwork.com regarding the sight of businessmen in the general area of where Fahrenheit is going to be built. At first, the ride was planned for an announcement on October 2, 2007. A sign was seen on the side of the wooden structure for the Western Chute-Out slide the ride would replace.
Not long after the teaser was shown, a web design company named. Curiously, the name of the company was an anagram of a roller coaster design firm. Nantimi had just announced that they would be creating a website to promote Hershey's new attraction, revealing the price of the attraction, $12.1 million. Two days it was discovered that the log-in window on the Nantimi site had a username and password written in it. Using it to log in, logos for a ride called. Soon after, it was found that the Nantimi website was registered through web hosting company Go Daddy, through it, an address to Nantimi's supposed headquarters was found. Putting the address into online map software, it was discovered that this supposed headquarters was in the middle of an open field with no nearby buildings except a farm. In early September, it was discovered by looking through the Nantimi website a link saying "them.travelled/thRu", that led to a page with a letter that claimed that the materials designed by Nantimi would be ready by September 26, 2007, "for the following day's announcement".
An e-mail address was discovered. Another e-mail address was discovered, when e-mailed, provided a response in binary, providing another e-mail address. After an e-mail was sent to this address, a reply arrived revealing a new announcement date, September 27, 2007, along with saying that those playing the Alternate Reality Game would receive the announcement on September 26, 2007. By re-arranging the letters of the phrase "them.travelled/thRu" a location on the Nantimi site was discovered at the URL, where an animated GIF flashing between several pictures was discovered. These pictures included pictures of the Western Chute-Out slides, a section of track of the style used by Intamin, a picture of the ride's layout. Sometime someone e-mailed Hersheypark asking if they had any connection to Nantimi. In the reply, Hershey confirmed the September 2007 announcement date; the same day, Nantimi hired a web security developer named Donan Michael. The announcement of the hiring included information that on his favorite colors, that Donan was a specialist in base64 encoding.
That day, a new teaser page was posted on the Hersheypark website, confirming the September 27 announcement date once again. Two days coaster enthusiast website Coasterdom managed to get an interview with an employee of Nantimi; the interview contained a reference to "nanatomic" a member of another coaster website, Theme Park Review. The same day the interview was posted, a hint, "s & o are the key" and a puzzle featuring an image of what appeared to be roller coaster track was found; that day, yet another e-Mail address was uncovered, when contacted, replied with more binary, that when translated led to another address. That night, the puzzle was solved, revealing a shot of part of the ride; that night, sing the information that Donan was a specialist in base64 encoding, his favorite colors and orange, someone thought to encode the phrase "silver and gold" in base64, revealing another URL, which provided a black-and-white image of the Western Chute-Out slides, the GIF animation that the puzzle was found in.
A few days 25 people across several coaster related sites began to get messages about "Phase 10". These e-Mails requested that the people the message had sent to them to provide their name, e-mail address; the next day, a picture of one of the supposed employees of Nantimi meeting with Sandor Kernacs, president of Intamin was discovered. The next day, the ones who had received the messages began getting e-mails containing small square pictures with the subject "25" and text saying "You are one. Play nice.". It was discovered the squares were pieces of a puzzle, the puzzle started being assembled soon after. A location on the Nantimi website was discovered that contained a list of threads relating to Hersheypark's 2008 ride on several popular coaster enthusiast forums. Soon after a blog by Nantimi employee Martin Tinley surfaced; the next day, a supposed beta video of the new attraction was posted on coaster forum Theme Park Review. However, it was revealed after a few days to be a hoax created by a coaster enthusiast who wanted to stop people believing in the game.
The same day the video was revealed to be false, a sale listing for the Western Chute-Out slides was discovered on the website of "Rides4U" a company dedicated to selling amusement rides. Although there were little to no hints from Nantimi for several days, after Nantimi resumed sending out the square pieces, the entire right-hand side o

Fahrenheit 11/9 is a 2018 American political documentary by filmmaker Michael Moore about the 2016 United States presidential election and the subsequent presidency of Donald Trump. The film had its world premiere on September 6, 2018 at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, was released in the United States on September 21, 2018, by Briarcliff Entertainment, it grossed one of the lowest totals of Moore's career. It received positive reviews, with review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes saying it " to a specific choir, but for anyone who's enjoyed Moore's filmography another worthy chapter."The film received a nomination for Best Documentary Screenplay from the Writers Guild of America. It received four nominations at the 39th Golden Raspberry Awards and won three, including worst actor for Donald Trump; the distributor describes the documentary as "a provocative and comedic look at the times in which we live", referring to the 2016 United States presidential election and the subsequent presidency of Donald Trump.
The documentary explores two questions: How the US progressed to the Trump presidency and how to "get out" of the era of the Trump administration. Apart from the Trump Administration, the documentary delves into some events that Moore believes are connected to or inspired by Trump, such as the 2010 Flint water crisis orchestrated by an appointee of Governor of Michigan Rick Snyder who changed the source from Lake Huron to the Flint River, leading to unacceptable levels of lead in the water, the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in 2018, which resulted in the March for Our Lives protest across the United States, calling for gun control measures and criticizing politicians who receive campaign donations from the National Rifle Association, he criticizes Barack Obama for his visit to Flint for not living up to the expectations of the people of Flint who expected to receive federal help after the visit. Moore compares Trump's rise to power to that of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, parallels the Reichstag fire with the September 11 attacks, compares Hitler's hate speeches against different ethnicities and sexual orientations to some of Trump's comments, showcases recent instances of unprovoked racial violence inspired by Trump.
He concludes that the United States Constitution no longer protects the people from the wealthy and powerful, the American Dream is now nothing more than a mere dream. He cites his previous documentaries Roger and Me, Bowling for Columbine, Capitalism: A Love Story which highlighted unpunished social and political injustices, he says that after the likes of Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, the country needed to see a president like Trump in order to wake up to the reality of what he believes the United States of America has become: a country not worth saving, but starting anew; the film's title relies on U. S. date notation to refer to November 9. The title serves as a callback to Moore's 2004 political documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, which refers to the date of the September 11 attacks in the United States. Both of Moore's documentary titles are an allusion to the 1953 dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Director Michael Moore partnered with producers Harvey Weinstein and Bob Weinstein in May 2017 to produce and distribute Fahrenheit 11/9.
The Weinsteins planned to fund $2 million out of $6 million in a documentary deal. The Weinsteins did not provide the funding, the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations emerged in the following October; as a result, Moore shut down development of the documentary. Before returning to Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore focused on putting on a Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender, which ran for 12 weeks. Production of the documentary resumed with between $4 million and $5 million in private funding; as part of filming, Moore made a clandestine visit to the Florida resort Mar-a-Lago owned by President Trump and mingled at the resort for 15 minutes before being escorted out by security. Fahrenheit 11/9 had its world premiere on September 6, 2018 at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. Moore screened Fahrenheit 11/9 in his hometown of Flint, Michigan on September 10. Briarcliff Entertainment considered releasing the documentary in July 2018, it used a theatrical release date optimization program and decided on September 21.
It was released alongside Life Itself, The House With a Clock in Its Walls, Assassination Nation. Based on early tracking, Fahrenheit 11/9 was expected to gross $4–10 million in its opening weekend in the United States and Canada. Variety said the opening-weekend gross "won't come close to trumping" Fahrenheit 9/11, which grossed $23.9 million at 868 theaters in the United States and Canada. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A" on an A+ to F scale, while PostTrak reported filmgoers gave it an overall positive score of 82%, including an average 4.5 out of 5 stars. After making just $1.1 million on its first day, weekend projections were lowered to $3 million. The film went on to debut to just $3.1 million, finishing eighth with a per-theater average of $1,804. Deadline Hollywood noted the film should have begun a limited run in larger cities (such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and C
Fahrenheit (1995 video game)
Fahrenheit is a full motion video game published by Sega and developed by Sega Studios for release on the Sega CD and Sega 32X CD in 1995. Developed as a 32X CD title, it saw a release on the Sega CD, where it was the same game, but with downgraded video quality. Both versions were bundled and sold together as one package for the North American release, while Japan and Europe only saw the Sega CD version being released. For the North American version, both discs were required to play the 32X CD version, which demonstrated a rare attempt to implement DRM protection in a console which had no copy protection at all. Fahrenheit is one of the many full-motion-video games that were released for the Sega CD in the 1990s. Played through a first-person perspective it follows a rookie firefighter belonging to a fictional fire house called "Company 13." After an introduction exposition scene the player advances to the first of three burning buildings to rescue victims and property while disposing of potential hazards.
As the player wanders through each building, an on-screen menu will pop up, allowing movement to the Left, Right or Forward. The game is timed, so decisions must be made or the computer will make the decisions for the player. In addition to this, the player has a limited supply of oxygen; the game has three different levels of a password feature. On release, GamePro called the game "a well-executed thriller that builds in intensity." Though they complained that players are given too much time to think about their choices, they praised the game's cinematic presentation, tough decision making, use of aural clues. Famicom Tsūshin scored the Mega-CD version of the game a 24 out of 40. GamePro did a separate review for the 32X version, commenting that "The strong elements of Fahrenheit on the Sega CD get better on the 32X CD." Next Generation scored the 32X version two out of five stars, commenting, "Fahrenheit is unusual in that it lets you decide where to go, something that has never been done in an FMV game before.
That feature alone makes this game fun. However, the bad acting, grainy video, lack of gameplay don't allow the fun to happen."
Fahrenheit is a tiny lunar impact crater located in the southeast part of the Mare Crisium. This area of the surface is nearly devoid of impact features of interest. To the east are the Dorsa Harker wrinkle ridges, beyond them is Promontorium Agarum at the edge of the mare; the landing site of the Soviet Luna 24 probe is located about 15 kilometers to the southeast. The crater is named after German-Dutch physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, it was designated Picard X. The crater Picard is located to the east-northeast on the Mare Crisium.
