Have you ever wanted to step into the shoes of Robert Langdon and unwrap mind-blowing (or ridiculous, depending on your perspective) conspiracies? Well, the folks at Sony are here to help you with that. Ahead of the release of Inferno, starring Tom Hanks, sleuths in the making can take part in a “three-week race against time” via a series of interactive puzzles. Participants will have the opportunity to decipher clues, solve riddles and get that much closer to the movie with the “Inferno Journey Through Hell” interactive experience.
Each week, head over to the website to solve three new puzzles boasting the circles of hell theme depicted in the movie. Using the best of Google (Google Maps, Gmail, Google Search, Google Play, Google Docs, Google Cultural Institute and YouTube) and social media, find the hidden clues and win prizes including an Italian getaway. Even better, they’ve enlisted the help of Dan Brown to create difficult puzzles that will have you wondering just how in the heck you’ll be able to solve them.
“Dan Brown is a master of creating suspenseful and intellectual mysteries that are known for interweaving classic references to art and history while also using hidden codes and symbols,” Elias Plishner, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Digital Marketing for Sony Pictures Entertainment, said. “For the first time, Dan has collaborated with the studio and our partners at Google to develop an online puzzle-based challenge that is filled with his signature brand of entertainment. The ‘Inferno Journey Through Hell’ will lead fans through many fun twists and turns while also giving them the chance to win some pretty spectacular prizes.”
Gameplay starts today and will continue through to the film’s release. Inferno heads to theaters on October 28.
