During last night’s primetime coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympics, Sony Pictures started airing this new preview for Inferno, the Ron Howard-directed film marking the return of Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon.

Inferno finds famous Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) on a trail of clues tied to the great Dante himself. When Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to foil a deadly global plot.
