When movie studios think it’s a good idea to put your name on top of the movie title on your movie posters, that’s when you know you’re living a charmed life. So how do you know when that charm life is getting less charming? When they start adding a second (or God forbid, a third) name along with yours over the movie title. That’s when you know it’s time to start saving some money and maybe, just maybe, pass on that third mistress in East L.A. But I digress. Here’s the first movie poster for Tom Hanks’ upcoming “Angels and Demons”, his prequel to “The Da Vinci Code”. Which reminds me: that’s another sign that you’re living a charm life; when every movie critic in the world savages your film, and it still makes a gazillion dollars.
So what’s the second one about?
Based on the novel by Dan Brown, “Angels and Demons” is a prequel to the author’s “The Da Vinci Code”, and once again follows world-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), who is summoned to a Swiss research facility (CERN) to analyze a mysterious symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. Langdon discovers evidence of the unimaginable: the rebirth of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati, the most powerful underground organization ever to walk the earth.
Starring Tom Hanks, Ayelet Zurer, Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgård, David Pasquesi, Cosimo Fusco, Ursula Brooks, Armin Mueller-Stahl, and directed by Ron Howard.
Get your fill of angels and demons on May 15, 2009.
