Trailer.


Cast/ Summary.

Looks very interesting. Can't wait to see it. But of course, the Church is against the release of this film. Some want a disclaimer at the beginning stating this film is fiction.

The following quote is from an article in Crisis Magazine regarding the Da Vinci Code:


$1:
While his extensive use of fictional formulas may be the secret to Brown’s stardom, his anti-Christian message can’t have hurt him in publishing circles: The Da Vinci Code debuted atop the New York Times best-seller list. By manipulating his audience through the conventions of romance-writing, Brown invites readers to identify with his smart, glamorous characters who’ve seen through the impostures of the clerics who hide the “truth” about Jesus and his wife. Blasphemy is delivered in a soft voice with a knowing chuckle: “[E]very faith in the world is based on fabrication.”

But even Brown has his limits. To dodge charges of outright bigotry, he includes a climactic twist in the story that absolves the Church of assassination. And although he presents Christianity as a false root and branch, he’s willing to tolerate it for its charitable works.

I heard that they were going to tone down the religious aspects of the book in the movie.

I don't know about that. I know the Church is not pleased though. They are keeping the filming very private. Westminster Abby refused permission for them to film there.

Kinda the main theme of the plot, isn't it?

If they do, it won't be great... Brown didn't have to tone his novel down for anyone, why should the directors?

That National Treasure movie (something like that) was quite a bit similar to the concept of the dVC

National Treasure was a real yawner for me. The issue of Christ being a man is a real sore spot for the Catholic Church. They created the myth of his divinity and have been ruthless with any individual or group that have tried to contradict them, Hollywood included.

I read the book too...it was awesome. How could you tone the book... The story is ficticious but all the facts in it are real.

IMAO, the least they tone it down, the more the church will be up and arms, the more publicity it will get, the more money it will get.

I am Roman Catholic and found the book extremely interesting and entertaining. I would not be offended at all if they stuck to the book as close as possible. People who are truly faithful will recognize it for what it is. Simple movies should not sway or misinform those who truly believe. It's an interesting speculative idea and for that I can't wait until next May when it comes out.

I hope i don't offend anyone when i say this. but the catholic church hates anything that even REMOTELY has to do with anything that might question what they believe in. suprise suprise. when you live in the bubble of your own beliefs your whole life, you tend to fear any sharp facts that may pop it.
But what do you expect believing in a carpenter who walked on water, cured the blind, turned water into wine and eventually came back to life only to dissapear? I have nothing against people who bleive this, im just saying that when you believe in such things, it will be questioned. The same way they would question anyone who believed in a janitor that could fly and make cool music with his eyeballs. Its unrealistic and unproven.

Perhaps they are afraid that the movie will convince believers to second guess thier faith aswell. Once they see the film they may say "hey yeah, that makes sense" and might stop going to church.

Im probably going to be bashed for this post. but this is just my beleif, and if a christian bashes me for it, it would be hypocritical. lol.

No need to bash your post.... the book doesn't address any of the above mentioned.

Masonic conspiracies, Illuminati, secret orders privy to the secrets of ages. This has been done before and to death. I've read both books and while entertaining, they didn't stand out to me anymore than the Indiana Jones series.
