Professor Langdon is back!
Sony has released the official trailer for Inferno. The film is an adaptation of Dan Brown‘s novel of the same name in the Robert Langdon series.
Tom Hanks returns to play the humble professor of religious iconology and symbology with Ron Howard returning to the director’s chair. Professor Langdon teams up with Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) to uncover a plot that will wipe half the world’s population away. The threat is far worse than what we have seen the professor dealing with so far.
As far as the trailer goes, like many modern ones, this too is plagued by the fact that it simply gives away too much. The viewer is bombarded with so much of information in the two and a half minutes that it makes you feel that you’ve watched the whole movie. People cutting these trailers must understand that “less is more“, especially when your story essentially relies on the suspense factor.

David Keopp (Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible) has penned the screenplay based on Brown’s novel.
Along with Hanks and Jones, the film also stars Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Ben Foster, and Sidse Babett Knudsen.
Inferno opens in theaters on October 28, 2016.
Read the official synopsis below :
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 stop a madman from unleashing a global virus that would wipe out half of the world’s population.
