Dangerous trail 

HBO presents the Blockbuster Of The Month, Angels and Demons on July 30 at 9 pm.
When Robert Langdon finds evidence of the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the lluminati — the most powerful underground organisation in history — he also faces a deadly threat to the existence of the Illuminati’s most despised enemy — the Catholic Church.

Upon learning that the clock is ticking on an unstoppable Illuminati time bomb, Robert is recruited to travel to Rome, where he joins forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist. Embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even to the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, Robert and Vittoria will follow the 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that marks the Vatican’s only hope for survival.

The movie stars Tom Hanks, Ewan Mcgregor, Ayelet Zurer and Stellan Skarsgard.
