New Pics From Angels And Demons
First look at Robert Langdon's new do

New shots from Angels & Demons promise a slicker, quicker film than its predecessor The Da Vinci Code.

There has been plenty of talk regarding Tom Hanks' bouffant hair as religious symbol sleuth Robert Langdon, and even this has had a hot new update, according to producer Brian Grazer.

"It's totally different... It's better. Everything is more contemporary."

In the shots, we can see the intricate sets built in place of the Vatican and other churches, which were out of bounds to the film-makers, due to the (spoiler!) murder of two cardinals and the film's idea that there exist vast dark Vatican conspiracies.

We can also check out Ewan McGregor in his priestly garb as Vatican insider Carlo Ventresca.

Langdon's new girl, Vittoria Vetra is played by Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer, and is seen here getting involved with investigations.

There's a new trailer. Well it's a teaser. Looks interesting. Book is better than The Da Vinci Code and this has Ewan McGregor in too. Hopeful. More

Shame, I thought "Ayelet Zurer getting involved with investigations" was more euphemistic than it turned out to be,,, More

I'll see it.  Quite liked the Da Vinci Code and enjoyed reading Angels and Demons until the admitedly attrocious ending. More

I thought Angels and Demons was a massively entertaining book (until the awful ending). This should make a good movie, though we said the same about The Da Vinci Code. If it's a choice between this and Star Trek though (and I only say this as other have mentioned it) it's Angels And Demons all the way! More

gonna get lost between Star Trek and T4...
surely no ones that bothered after the lame Da Vinci Code movie? i know it made $750m but that was due to all the Da Vinci mania about jesus having a kid...no such pull for this one..unless you count seeing Hanks new do... id be suprised if it does more than half DVC box office... hopefully everyone will see star trek again instead of sitting through this...
