Robert Langdon, widely considered to be the world’s greatest mind, faces his gravest challenge yet in the latest – and seemingly final – trailer for Inferno, the third chapter in Ron Howard’s Da Vinci Code series.
Primed to stage one final hurrah for the divisive franchise, it is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story alum Felicity Jones that will join forces with Tom Hanks’ returning symbologist as Dr. Sienna Brooks, who scramble across Europe together in order to stop an extinction-level event that harbors some connection to Dante’s nine circles of Hell.
A race against time and a protagonist struggling with an unreliable memory are among the clichéd tropes to feature in today’s new teaser, which really begs the question as to whether Inferno is a movie sequel audiences demanded in the first place. Alas, money talks, as is often the case, and thanks to the combined $1.2 billion of Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, we now arrive at this year’s apocalyptic thriller.
Also starring Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Ben Foster, and Sidse Babett Knudsen, Inferno premieres on October 28.
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 stop a madman from unleashing a global virus that would wipe out half of the world’s population.
