Renowned symbologist Robert Langdon’s back for another mystery to crack, but Inferno sees in less than great shape. At the start of the movie - once again adapted from a hit Dan Brown novel - Langdon wakes up in a Florentine hospital with a head injury and no idea of the past few days’ events. Worse still, there’s a man-made super-virus hidden somewhere, and only by solving a series of clues left in classic works of art can Langdon track it down before the pestilence wipes out half the planet.

October is one of our favourite months of the year, because we can start wearing sweaters, leaves are falling, and we can justify horror movie marathons all month long.
In theatres, however, we are getting a very interesting mix of thrills, scares, laughs, and some indie gems that caught our eye when they played the Toronto International Film Festival last month. That’s right, awards season is on the verge of beginning, and October features a couple of those highly buzzed titles. Among these are Moonlight and The Birth of a Nation, as well as some good old fun at the movies, like Tom Cruise returning as Jack Reacher, or Tom Hanks’ reprisal of Robert Langdon in Inferno. »

Today brings about our first real look at Inferno, the next Dan Brown book adaptation that has Tom Hanks reprise the Robert Langdon role from The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons. Come inside to watch the teaser trailer!
Personally, I never cared for The Da Vinci Code movie adaptation, though I know many enjoyed it. Angels & Demons, however, was pretty damn impressive and resparked my interest in the Robert Langdon adventures in general. Even so, my interest in Dan Brown's books have waned, and his last few didn't make much of an impression. So I'm not entirely sure how to feel about the Inferno movie at this point:
It's not really a bad trailer, but certainly makes it look more action-packed than the story really is. What's more intriguing to me, however, is so much of this trailer seems to use footage from the last act of the story, »

Sony Pictures has released the two posters for the hotly-anticipated sequel Inferno, the fourth novel in Brown's popular series. The Da Vinci Code hit the big screen in 2006, followed by 2009's Angel's & Demons. The Lost Symbol is the third book in the series, but it's being skipped for some reason.
Tom Hanks will reprise his role as Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon. The film also co-stars Felicity Jones, Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Ben Foster, and Sidse Babett Knudsen. Inferno is directed by Ron Howard from a script written by David Koepp,
In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces... Dante's Inferno.
Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. »

Ah joy! Finally -- a movie that invites all the cheap-shot insults that Savant must normally stifle. What follows is all in good fun. »

★★★★☆ British director Ken Russell passed away in 2011 leaving behind a life's work devoted to filmmaking at its most exuberant and vital. Russell made a number of films in the early part of his career which depicted artists brimming with the same enthusiasm of expression as the director himself. The Great Passions is one of two collections which the BFI are releasing to honour his distinctive approach to the biographical form. The three films collected here are dedicated to Dante Gabriel Rossetti (Dante's Inferno), Isadora Duncan (Isadora) and Henri Rousseau (Always On Sunday) - three artists whose eccentricity provide a perfect foil to Russell's own bravura style.
