In an industry dominated by Superhero blockbusters, it's always great to see a good ole fashion drama/thriller start making waves. Inferno, the third movie in the Robert Langdon trilogy, based on the Dan Brown novels shows much promise from the new trailer that was just released. It has all the elements that made the Inferno novel such a success.
Check out the new trailer for Inferno
Inferno takes place after the events of Angels & Demons when Robert Langdon wakes up in a hospital room in Italy with amnesia and the target of a major manhunt. When a mysterious woman named Sienna Brooks appears to help him, she leads them toward a mystery embroiled within a web of dangerous twists revolving around the 14th-century poem Dante's Inferno. At the end of the journey lies a danger unlike anything Robert Langdon has faced before, with the fate of an entire generation at hand.
Inferno once again stars Tom Hanks as the Harvard Symbologist Robert Langdon. Joining him in this new adventure is Felicity Jones as Sienna Brooks, Omar Sy, Ben Foster, Irrfan Khan, and Sidse Babett Knudsen. The movie (based on the novel, which sold 6 million copies so far) is expected to do really well — much better than the previous movies. Inferno was such a great vision that Director Ron Howard felt compelled to skip over the book that was released prior — The Lost Symbol.
Cinematically, when 'Lost Symbol' came out, I think our feeling, my feeling, was that it's a terrific, another terrific novel. It's great material, but it felt like, coming close on the heels of 'Angels and Demons' and 'Da Vinci Code,' that thematically and tonally, it might feel a little bit too much like the other books, at that particular moment. ['Inferno'] immediately felt like a cinematic next step, and that excited us. 'Lost Symbol' is outstanding and you know, someday, something important has to be done with it.
