May 19, 2006 Director Ron Howard's adaptation of the book by Dan Brown's best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code walks a careful line. On one side lies world-famous art and shadowy figures. On the other is Howard, attempting to bring a unique interpretation to light.
May 19, 2006 Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code is second only to the Harry Potter series as the best-selling novel of all time. It has inspired a whole slew of writing on Biblical puzzles, the life of Mary Magdalene, and some debunking of Brown's premise. Now comes the long-anticipated film, directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tatou.
May 9, 2006 The Da Vinci Code is expected to be a blockbuster hit this summer. Sony Pictures is hoping that the millions of people who bought Dan Brown's book will also buy movie tickets. Father James Martin is hoping that after fans see the movie, they won't come looking for him. He's tired of having everyone he meets ask him about the Priory of Sion and Opus Dei. Martin, a Jesuit priest, is the author of My Life with the Saints.
