Opening This Week - October 28

Wide Releases:


Directed by: Ron Howard
Runtime: 2hrs, 1min

It's hard to say why Dan Brown's absurd series of Robert Langdon stories finds success. Most people claim his writing isn't very good, and everyone seems to agree his stories are fundamentally silly. Yet they sell copies well enough to spend weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers List. The film series is about the same. Lots of bad reviews, poor Rotten Tomatoes rating, yet they continue to rake in solid box office numbers. This is what it means to be a guilty pleasure. It might be silly but if it's entertaining and the audience is there, they'll just keep making them. The claim in many of the early reviews is that this is the best in the series so far, but it's currently sitting at 27% on Rotten Tomatoes. So temper expectations.
