One More Full TV Trailer for Ron Howard's 'Inferno' with Tom Hanks
"Only he can unlock the mystery. Only he can stop the unthinkable." Another new fast-paced trailer has debuted online for Ron Howard's adaptation of the other Dan Brown novel, Inferno, once again starring Tom Hanks as symbologist Robert Langdon. We've already seen a couple of different trailers for this movie already, and this new one tries to hype up the excitement of the story even more. The cast includes Felicity Jones as Dr. Sienna Brooks, Langdon's beautiful sidekick in this one, plus Ben Foster, Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ana Ularu, and Ida Darvish. As much as I have enjoyed reading the novels, this particular big screen version of Langdon's history-inspired, globe-trotting, solve-the-mystery thriller doesn't seem to be that exciting. Here's to hoping it's much better than it looks, only time will tell.
Here's the latest TV trailer (+ poster) for Ron Howard's Inferno adaptation, direct from YouTube:
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 foil a deadly global plot. Inferno is once again directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Ron Howard, of the two previous Dan Brown adaptations (The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons) plus In the Heart of the Sea, Apollo 13, Willow, Cinderella Man, Frost/Nixon and many other films. The screenplay is written by David Koepp, adapting from Dan Brown's novel. Sony will release Inferno in theaters everywhere starting October 28th this fall.
I've only seen the Da Vinci Code and it was "meh" to me. Is there a reason these movies keep going? Or is it simply because good books = franchise? I guess Tom Hanks has got to pay the rent somehow...

The mediocrity in film making at its best...

Sorry for being harsh, Bo, but I don't like Ron Howard, to be honest in the first place. I think he's movies are mostly exercise in mediocrity, as I said above. I also and certainly think that when it comes to 'A Beautiful Mind'. Secondly, I think that this subject is a way overused and this is pure exploitation of the Christian narrative for me. I have no problem with Tom Hanks though, he's regularly good (but nothing special for me). However, for a moment I did think I might see the whole trilogy at some point for some fun. Because, 'well made' part refers, for me, on a good production without something special about it. Good standard is a word I would use to describe it. Like making of a good car. It drives smoothly and that's all to it. But sorry, I am not fan of this, that's definite.

Well Bo, you got me with Missing. I have to admit, that was very good film. Acting ensemble probably had to something with it too. So, my bad. I got lost among many of R. Howard's films that I don't really like. Of course, not that I feel very bad about it, but I remember the mentioned one as a very good film. I was also very disappointed how that film was received which mostly makes me think that only mediocrity passes for success in the film industry. And although I could say that Ron Howard has skills, I am not happy with the notion that he probably taught a lesson with that one good take. As for the attitude to the general audience, hey man, you definitely have my voice with that. Cheers...
