Sony Pictures has released the teaser trailer for Ron Howard‘s adaptation of Inferno starring Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones. The film is a follow-up to the 2006’s The Da Vinci Code and 2009’s Angels & Demons, and finds Hanks reprise the role of symbologist Robert Langdon who wakes up in an Italian hospital suffering from a severe case of amnesia and must regain his memories to stop a terrorist from releasing a virus inspired by Dante’s Inferno.
When the Visceral Games and Electronic Arts video game Dante’s Inferno was released in 2010, it didn’t make much of a splash. Some people enjoyed it, especially for its look, while others didn’t enjoy it so much due to gameplay that was very similar to the God of War series. And everyone moved on.
Now the game may be getting dusted off or given some new chances by gamers, as a movie version is in the works. It’s being reported that Fede Alvarez, the short film director who made his feature debut with 2013’s Evil Dead and became one of the rare few to prove that remakes can in fact work when done properly, is in negotiations to take on the live-action adaptation.

Tonight was the big game, and to sum things up, booze and gumbo be flowin’ strong in the French Quarters of New Orleans tonight.
The obvious big draw of the Super Bowl is the game itself, but right behind that it the unveiling of some of the best commercials you’ll see. Recent years have been an incredible disappointment for the advertisement industries, and it has seemed like very few companies have anyone working for them with fresh and funny ideas. So would this year be the year when commercials rose back to their former glory, or would failure loom once again?
The short answer is no, no there was not any glory. The majority of this year’s commercials, like recent years, were utter garbage, and that’s just sad and honest truth. The only real bright spots of the year came from the always-popular Bud Lite ads, and Doritos made a strong showing themselves. There were a couple of decent ones scattered around in between these, but that’s about all there is to it. You can head over to SPIKE to check out all of the commercials!

A whole lot of buzz is building about a certain video game from Electronic Arts that’s apparently being called Dante’s Inferno and is taken from the Inferno chapter of Dante’s classic The Divine Comedy. This was very recently part of a massive studio bidding war for the rights to make it into a movie at some point. Out of all of the studios, Universal eventually won out.
The peculiar thing is that at this point, the game is nowhere near actually being released. Does this mean that this game OR its storyline is so unimaginably good, people absolutely had to have it right here and now without waiting to see if it actually was enjoyed by gamers? It’s very hard to say at this point. You have to imagine that all of these studios knew things that we currently do not. Something had to set it off. There’s a chance that the story was very much wanted to begin with and EA won, but I highly doubt that, considering the story has been around like 700 years and studios have a lot of money to toss around.
