Humanity is the disease, Inferno is the cure.
The sequel to The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, Ron Howard’s next big release Inferno is all set to release on 14th October. We take you through the details of the movie.
In The Poet’s Words
Inferno is the first part of Italian poet Dante Alighieri’s 14th century epic poem Divine Comedy. The poem tells the journey of the poet through the realms of Hell, guided by the Roman poet Virgil.
The movie is based on writer Dan Brown’s fourth work that goes by the same title and was also on number one on New York Times Best Seller list for hardcover fiction. In the movie, the protagonist Langdon is racing against time to solve the mystery hidden in Dante’s poetry to save the world from a deadly artificial plague.
Unlocking The Mystery
In the mystery thriller, a Dante obsessed biologist called Bertrand Zobrist (Ben Foster) designs a bomb to half the human population and save the planet in the long run.
Following the Langdon series, the movie showcases how the symbologist (Tom Hanks) follows Zobrist’s breadcrumb path of riddles to reach the device’s disabling point. The trail starts off at a hospital of Florence where the professor finds himself in a state of daze and no memory of the last few days.
It is only Professor Langdon who can see the clues to the riddles and he must solve the mystery to save the planet from extinction. Memory and imagination play a very crucial role in the movie.
Irrfan Khan plays the character of Harry “The Provost” Sims, head of the Consortium who helps Zobrist in the mission. Felicity Jones portrays the role of Dr. Sienna Brooks, who helps Langdon escape. Omar Sy also plays an important part in the movie.
