Ron Howard’s adaptation of Dan Brown’s Inferno may be the one that kills the franchise.

Inferno is more of the same with a crazy weird puzzle that must be solved to prevent a dead biochemist’s plan to kill off half the world’s population (to save it) from coming to fruition. This must be done by a half-dead Robert Langdon who is recovering from a head trauma and the doctor who helps him.

In a trailer made for IMAX (the film was made with IMAX cameras), Eastwood talks a bit about the movie. The trailer follows the break.

Sully opens on September 9th.

Brooklyn lawyer James Donovan (Tom Hanks) meets with his client Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), a Soviet agent arrested in the U.S. in BRIDGE OF SPIES, directed by Steven Spielberg.

Bridge of Spies tells a story that unfolded over five years in a little under two-and-a-half hours. It’s the story of a man who was on the prosecutorial team at Nuremberg but had spent the time between then and 1957 as an insurance lawyer. Then he was asked to represent a Soviet spy and, in trying to do his job properly, became the second most hated man in America (after the spy) – until the Soviets shot down U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers.

It’s a case where real life became something out of a John LeCarre spy novel.
