Tom Hanks Slams The Da Vinci Code As Cynical, Commecial ‘Hooey’

June 14, 2022

There is no denying that The Da Vinci Code was a phenomenon in the 2000s. The novel was released in 2003 and was only outsold that year by Harry Potter and the Order of The Phoenix, and the movie version, starring Tom Hanks, was released three years later, becoming the second highest-grossing movie of 2006 despite dismal reviews. The film was followed by prequel Angels and Demons and sequel Inferno, both of which saw Hanks returning to the role of Robert Langdon, but neither fared well from critics. A recent TV series of The Lost Symbol continued adaptations of the books of Dan Brown, but was canceled after one season. According to a recent interview in the New York Times, it seems that Tom Hanks was not a fan of the movies either.
