Sony Pictures has announced an Inferno IMAX release. You can catch Tom Hanks‘ return as Robert Langdon when the Ron Howard film hits IMAX theaters October 28.

The third film in the franchise that launched with The Da Vinci Code in 2006, which brought in over $758 million at the worldwide box office, and continued with Angels & Demons in 2009, Inferno has Hanks reprising his role as Langdon opposite Oscar nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) as Dr. Sienna Brooks, Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi) as Harry Sims (also known as The Provost), Omar Sy (The Intouchables) as Christoph Bruder, and Sidse Babett Knudsen (“Borgen”) as Dr. Elizabeth Sinskey, the head of the World Health Organization. Ben Foster (Lone Survivor) is also slated to star as the film’s chief villain.

“Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon is back, and ‘Inferno’ is his most thrilling adventure yet with the patented Dan Brown twists and turns,” says Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures. “We’ve had an extraordinary response to the film from audiences – it’s testing extremely well. Ron Howard has made Inferno the most visually stylistic film in the series so far, with intense action sequences and cryptic dream sequences that will have audiences wanting to experience this film in IMAX.”

“Beginning with the very first IMAX DMR release — ‘Apollo 13’ — IMAX and Ron Howard, along with the support of our partners at Imagine Entertainment, have created a longstanding and successful tradition of bringing awe-inspiring entertainment to movie-goers around the globe,” adds Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “Together with our friends and colleagues at Sony, we are excited to continue that legacy with Dan Brown’s latest franchise installment Inferno, which is sure to thrill audiences when it launches this fall in IMAX theatres worldwide.”

The Inferno IMAX release will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of the IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that aims to make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

The Imagine Entertainment production features a screenplay by David Koepp based on the book by Dan Brown. Inferno’s executive producers include Dan Brown, Anna Culp, Bill Connor, and David Householter.
