In the wake of the four "Angels & Demons" photos outing, Sony Pictures have released the first teaser trailer of the drama mystery thriller. Presenting another mystery to be solved before time runs out, the promotional video tells about a Papal Conclave that is taking place with thousands of people gathering at Saint Peter Square.
As the reporter goes on describing further on the occurrences, a voice of a man takes over. He explains that in that particular night in Vatican City an ancient ritual is taking place and that the entire world is watching the ritual. Then, slowly but surely, he reveals that it is the perfect night for him and his colleagues to have their revenge. The footage quickly moves to display a slew of snippets where Robert Langdon is on a trail to save the Vatican.
Coming back as Langdon, Professor of Religious Symbology at Harvard University, this time Tom Hanks is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol engraved into the chest of a murdered physicist. Discovering an unimaginable vendetta against the Catholic Church by an ancient underground brotherhood, the Illuminati, he now has to team up with beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb.
A second Dan Brown's novel to be brought to the big screen, "Angels" is directed by Ron Howard from the script penned by Akiva Goldsman. Supporting Hanks on the casting are Ayelet Zurer, Ewan McGregor and Thure Lindhart. This novel adaptation movie is set to be released in the U.S. on May 15, 2009.
