“There’s a switch,” says the voiceover. “If you throw it, half the people on earth will die. But if you don’t, in a hundred years, the human race will be extinct.”
We see Hanks reprise his role as Robert Langdon from previous Dan Brown adaptations “Angels & Demons” and “The Da Vinci Code.” This time, however, he’s tasked with thwarting the release of a virus that threatens to wipe out the human race.
“You are humanity’s final hope,” adds the voiceover.
