The Da Vinci Code, directed by Ron Howard, was released ten years ago, and now he is back with another film adaptation of Dan Brown’s bestselling novel Inferno, starring none other than Tom Hanks. He reprises his role as Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, opposite Felicity Jones as Dr. Sienna Brooks.
Below is the first teaser trailer for the film Inferno.
The film follows Langdon, who is now drawn into a tormenting world where he must try to stop a global genocide scheme by following clues in Dante’s “The Divine Comedy,” which was published in May 2013.
When Langdon awakens in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks, a doctor who he hopes will assist him in regaining his memories. They race across Europe and against the clock to thwart a lethal global plot.
Against this backdrop, Langdon faces a terrifying adversary and must solve an ingenious riddle that transports him to a world of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Using Dante’s dark epic poem as inspiration, Langdon races to find answers and decide who to trust… before the world is irreversibly changed.
Of course, a Dan Brown story would be incomplete without an intricate puzzle for Langdon to solve. As seen in the first trailer for Inferno, the film will be a good entertainer with puzzles and secret agendas.
According to reports, the director who initially wanted to work on “The Lost Symbol,” the third novel in Dan Brown’s book series, later decided to direct Inferno instead. This could explain why they took so long to create their third installment, despite the fact that the first two films in the series were huge successes. In fact, “The Da Vinci Code” grossed $758 million worldwide in 2006, while “Angels & Demons” grossed $485 million globally in 2009.
