Rome — Pope Francis on Monday named former Fox News correspondent Greg Burke as his spokesman, marking the first time a U.S. citizen has held the post, which is crucial to shaping and spreading the papal message around the world.
Francis also appointed Spanish radio reporter Paloma Garcia Ovejero as his deputy spokesperson. She is the first woman to hold such a senior position within the Vatican communications hierarchy.
Burke, 56, is a member of the conservative Opus Dei movement. He takes over from the Rev. Federico Lombardi, who is 73 and, like Francis, a Jesuit. Lombardi had been Vatican spokesman for a decade.
Pope John Paul II’s longtime spokesman, Joaquin Navarro-Valls, was also a member of Opus Dei, the organization portrayed in Dan Brown’s bestselling potboiler “The Da Vinci Code” as being at the root of an international Catholic conspiracy.
A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Burke joined Fox in Rome in 2001. He left the conservative »

Director Ron Howard and Tom Hanks are primed to cap off their trilogy of globetrotting crime cappers later this year with Inferno, the apocalyptic thriller that heralds the return of Hanks’ brilliant mastermind and symbologist, Robert Langdon.
Following up on The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, Howard’s latest directorial effort is once again based on Dan Brown’s literary phenomenon, this time teeing up Tom Hanks and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story alum Felicity Jones as a partners-in-supernatural-crime.
David Koepp (Angels & Demons) is the brains behind the script, pitting Jones and Hanks against a deranged scientist known as Bertrand Zobrist, who wants nothing more than to unleash doomsday upon the unsuspecting masses.

10 years ago, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon transitioned from the pages of Dan Brown's hit novels to the big screen, with Tom Hanks portraying this iconic character in 2006's The Da Vinci Code. He returned three years later for the follow-up Angels & Demons, but it's been seven long years since we've seen Dr. Langdon on the big screen. That will change this fall with the upcoming Inferno, and today we have the second trailer with new footage.
This new trailer, which comes courtesy of Sony Pictures, finds the famous symbologist (again played by Tom Hanks) on a trail of clues tied to the great Dante himself.

It’s been a decade since The Da Vinci Code hit theaters and seven years since the same team adapted Angels & Demons and it’s a little surprising just how little director Ron Howard‘s adaptations of author Dan Brown’s art history-themed airport thrillers have remained in pop culture consciousness.

The teaser opens with a man committing suicide off a tower after being told “It appears that you’re out of options,” followed by Hanks’ Robert Langdon character being summoned by the witness to the suicide. Clues lead him to drawings of Dante’s “Inferno” that have been changed.
“Dante defined our conception of hell 700 years ago, but these circles have been altered,” he declares. “‘Dante’s Inferno’ isn’t fiction — it’s a prophecy.”
It turns out that a madman is trying to wipe half the world’s population, and kill Langdon. Langdon, who suffers from amnesia, teams up with Sienna Brooks (Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories, as he fights for his life. »

Reprising his role as Robert Langdon, protagonist of the best-selling book series by Dan Brown, Tom Hanks is faced with his biggest challenge yet in the new full-length trailer for Inferno. Helmed by director Ron Howard, who also directed the first two installments in The Da Vinci Code series, Inferno pits Langdon against amnesia, a new vision of Dante’s Hell, and a shady organization with a global plot of death.
Luckily, Langdon has a partner in Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), who seems to be the only one trusting the world’s greatest mind as he is framed for a crime. Also starring Ben Foster, Omar Sy, and Orrfan Khan, Inferno looks to be a more psychedelic, world-ending entry into the mystery series.

“The world’s greatest mind is facing his greatest challenge.” So touts the first full trailer for Inferno, again starring Tom Hanks as symbologist/humanity savior Robert Langdon.

This time, the clues come not from the art world or the Vatican but 14th century… »
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
