A sealed vial of antimatter capable of leveling Rome has been stolen from the Large Hadron Collider, and a note left behind credits the Illuminatiwith the theft.  Simultaneously one of the church's most beloved popes has been murdered, and the four-member committee historically designated to select his successor has been kidnapped.

Meanwhile the Vatican has summoned Harvard professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) to Rome, whose intricate knowledge of Illuminist symbolism may help officials locate the cardinals' kidnappers and the increasingly volatile vial of antimatter before it is too late.

Angels & Demons was nominated for two Teen Choice Awards.  The picture earned $485 million at the box office, tripling its $150 million budget.
