Tom Hanks and Ron Howard have cracked the Da Vinci Code again!
Their new Dan Brown movie, “Inferno,” racked up $94.3 million this past week around the world, one week before its US opening.
“Inferno” was most popular in Italy, Brazil and Russia. The thriller featuring Ben Foster, Irrfan Khan. Omar Sy and Felicity Jones hasn’t opened in China yet.
This was a smart move on Sony’s part since “Inferno” has a very weak 27% here on Rotten Tomatoes, and may not be so much of a blockbuster. But if they can clean up abroad before the October 28th American premiere ushers in a lot of negative reviews, American box office numbers will be irrelevant.
