"Angels & Demons" premieres in Rome with Tom Hanks

"Angels & Demons," the film based on the Dan Brown best-selling novel, has had its world premiere in Rome.
Fake Swiss Guards stood at attention on the red carpet Monday as Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard arrived for the screening. Hanks plays Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon of "The Da Vinci Code" fame.
In the new film, the Vatican turns to Langdon for help after an ancient secret brotherhood called the Illuminati kidnaps four cardinals considered front-runners to be the next pope, and threaten to kill one an hour and then explode a bomb at the Vatican.
Hanks says "Angels & Demons" is a much more fast-paced film than "The Da Vinci Code," which took in more than $750 million worldwide.
