Every once in a while, Ron Howard and Tom Hanks get together and make a movie based on a Dan Brown novel. These movies are easily digested, totally forgettable affairs based on moderately-entertaining-but-hackishly-written airport novels, and they always make a ton of money (the Robert Langdon shared universe, which is only two films into its run, has generated over $1B at the worldwide box office).
So of course there's another one.
Here's the official plot description, in case the trailer above proved too difficult to follow:
Academy Award® winner Ron Howard returns to direct the latest bestseller in Dan Brown’s (Da Vinci Code) billion-dollar Robert Langdon series, Inferno, which finds the famous symbologist (again played by Tom Hanks) on a trail of clues tied to the great Dante himself. When Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to foil a deadly global plot.
A race against time, a deadly global plot, symbols that need to be decoded. You know the drill.
Inferno arrives on October 28th. God, I hope it plays Fantastic Fest.
