what's the story
Film adaptation of Dan ("The Da Vinci Code") Brown's novel of the same name. When Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) discovers evidence of the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati - the most powerful underground organization in history - he also faces a deadly threat to the existence of the secret organization's most despised enemy: the Catholic Church. When Langdon learns that the clock is ticking on an unstoppable Illuminati time bomb, he jets to Rome, where he joins forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist. Embarking on a nonstop hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs and deserted cathedrals and even to the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, they will follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that mark the Vatican's only hope for survival. Ron Howard directs.
