Review: INFERNO / A MONSTER CALLS / ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY

When Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to stop a madman from unleashing a global virus that would wipe out half of the world’s population.

None of the movies in the Robert Langdon saga have been produced in the order that their corresponding novels by Dan Brown were released. THE DA VINCI CODE was made first, but adapted from the second book; ANGELS & DEMONS was the second movie to be released, but adapted from the first book. INFERNO is the third film to be adapted, but from the fourth book in the series. The third book, THE LOST SYMBOL, remains unproduced because the studio preferred to adapt INFERNO instead. (IMDB)

A visually spectacular and unabashedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona. 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.

Tom Holland, who collaborated with director J.A. Bayona on THE IMPOSSIBLE, was the stand in for the monster during filming. He received a special "Thank You" during the end credits. (IMDB)

A group of unlikely heroes who, in a time of conflict, band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and, in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Anthony Daniels was reportedly disgruntled that Alan Tudyk was allowed to play K-2SO in the relative comfort of a motion-capture suit, whereas Daniels had to endure years of discomfort and injuries in the C-3PO costume. This tension came to a head when Daniels cursed at Tudyk after ROGUE ONE's premiere. Tudyk later joked that a "F*** you" from Daniels was one of the highest compliments he had ever received. (IMDB)
