The new trailer for Angels and Demons, the prequel to The Da Vinci Code has been released and it’s better than the first teaser.

I really disliked The Da Vinci Code in theaters and it was the first time I ever disliked Tom Hanks in a movie (and it’s not just because of his hair style in the film). So when I heard of the prequel novel being made into feature film, I was not excited at all.

The first movie unjustly made over three-quarters of a billion dollars ($758,239,851!) despite a poor 25% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. My expectations of the prequel were that people have learned from watching The Da Vinci Code and will avoid it… At least I would.

However, after seeing this trailer my final thought is it makes me go from “I’m definitely not seeing this in theaters” to “Maybe I’ll check this out in theaters.” I still do not have high expectations for this movie despite how good the book is.

Enough chatting, here’s the brand new trailer:

So, what do you think of the trailers?

Angels and Demons is directed by Ron Howard and is of course based on the successful book by Dan Brown. It opens on May 15, 2009.
