Release Year: 2009

Directed By: Ron Howard

Starring: Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor, Ayelet Zurer, Stellan Skarsgård, Pierfrancesco Favino, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Armin Muelle-Stahl

Who doesn’t love Tom Hanks? The movie star and all-around American sweetheart has starred in some of our collective favorite movies of all time, whether it’s a war epic or an endearing drama about a lovable guy. Back in 2009, Hanks continued the fan-favorite Robert Langdon film series with the mystery thriller sequel Angels & Demons, and it’s a Netflix must-watch.

Based on the novel of the same name by Dan Brown, Tom Hanks stars in Angels & Demons as Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon as he realizes the ancient brotherhood known as the Illuminati has made a comeback. As he ventures to Rome to warn the group’s enemy, the Vatican, Langdon follows an ancient trail of symbols to thwart the Illuminati’s planned deadly plot.

Angels & Demons comes from director Ron Howard, who needs no introduction, and follows the hit 2006 mystery film The Da Vinci Code, which is also featured on this list. The sequel was a box office success but a miss with critics and was later followed by the 2016 franchise capper Inferno. If you’re both a Tom Hanks fan and a mystery buff, here’s a movie night headliner for you!
