Professor Robert Langdon is at it again. In Inferno, everyone's favorite historian/world-saver is back to save the planet in another movie based on the work of author Dan Brown. Langdon, as played by Tom Hanks, first entered the business of world-saving in 2006's The Da Vinci Code, tradition he continued in 2009's Angels & Demons. Now, Langdon is ready to save the world from a plague inspired by Dante's inferno in, but before he does, you might want to check out the other two movies first. But, are the Da Vinci Code movies on Netflix? Because, if not, it's gonna take Professor Langdon to magically figure out how you can watch them.
Luckily, they are — kind of. The Da Vinci Code is, but Angels & Demons is not. But before you start re-watching these films any way you can, first learn a bit about Inferno. In the new film, Langdon will face a brand new, non-Da Vinci themed threat. This time, instead of finding clues in the Mona Lisa, Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital, having no memory of why or how he got there. With a little help from a nice doctor (Felicity Jones), Langdon tries to solve clues left in Dante's Inferno in an attempt to stop a world-wide plague meant to curb the Earth's population. Sounds like a lot to ask of a history professor, if you ask me. But, Langdon isn't just any old Professor — he's done this before. If you want to check out Robert Langdon in action before you spend money on seeing Inferno on the big screen, you'll want to re-watch the first few movies, below.
The Da Vinci Code
The Da Vinci Code, the first movie that kicked off our Robert Langdon obsession, is currently streaming on Netflix. The first movie in the series follows Langdon as he gets caught up in a criminal investigation and is set on a quest to find the Holy Grail when his friend is murdered in Paris.
Angels & Demons
Angels & Demons, the follow up to The Da Vinci Code, is, unfortunately, not streaming on Netflix. The movie, which finds Langdon traveling in Rome to help the Pope when a group of cardinals are taken hostage by the Illuminati, is only available to rent on DVD via Netflix, but that doesn't mean it's not available via other streaming services. Angels & Demons is available to rent via Amazon Video and iTunes ($3.99).
Of course, if you're really in the mood for some Dan Brown, you can always check out the original book series, which includes The Lost Symbol, a 2009 novel that has not yet been adapted into a movie.
