Hot on the heels of director Ron Howard’s wildly successful adaptations of Brown’s The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons comes Inferno, the most successfully cinematic Robert Langdon yarn to date. In comparison to its brethren, it’s still dumb as a box of rocks, but at least it’s light on its feet.
Coming out this week, Dan Brown‘s Angels & Demons has Tom Hanks solving riddles, all in the name of saving the Vatican from the Illuminati; Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn co-star in the holiday comedy, Four Christmases; plus a look at Shorts, and Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
The theatres are quiet this weekend, aside from the release of one big film that has every other studio steering clear. That film is of course Warner Bros’ long-awaited adaptation of the Dan Brown novel, Angels & Demons, starring Tom Hanks once more as professor Robert Langdon.
