Tom Hanks is back once again as world-renowned Harvard University professor Robert Langdon in Inferno, which just released its long-awaited official trailer. Set against the backdrop of Florence, Italy, the action-packed trailer treats us to expansive shots of the stunning Italian city and its many ancient icons, as well as shocking images of near-apocalyptic doom.
Based on Dan Brown’s bestselling novel series, Inferno is the sequel to the controversial 2006 hit The Da Vinci Code and its 2009 follow-up Angels & Demons. This time around, Langdon must uncover a mystery hidden in an image of Dante’s Inferno, eventually unearthing a shocking prophecy that may not only lead to his own demise, but to the genocide of half of all humankind.
Omar Sy co-stars as Christoph Bruder, head of the SRS team, who enlists the professor of iconography and symbology to help find the truth behind the “Inferno” threat; Felicity Jones is Sienna Brooks, a doctor who helps Langdon escape from the nationwide manhunt he unknowingly finds himself a target of, and Ben Foster as transhumanist scientist Bertrand Zobrist, who risks everything to keep the dark secrets of Inferno sealed.
Inferno, directed by Ron Howard, hits theaters October 28, 2016.
