Tom Hanks in The Da Vinci Code
When I entered the theatre at midnight this morning to see King Kong I had expected to see trailers such as those for X-Men 3, Mission: Impossilbe 3 and Miama Vice. However, the one trailer the truly surprised me was that of The Da Vinci Code. With no previous warning that we could expect the full trailer today, the adaptation of the best-selling novel looks pretty damn sweet.

I don't know if it is just me, but doesn't Tom Hanks look kind of weird playing the role of Robert Langdon? Ahh, it's probably just me, but I had pictured the character differently while reading the books by Dan Brown. Fortunately, Audrey Tautou (Amelie) looks pretty damn cute as investigator Sophie Neveu and I cannot wait to see this girl in a film without subtitles (I still dig her French films also). Also, does Ian McKellen have to be in every major blockbuster movie? This guy pops up everywhere and I love that Ron Howard decided to use his dialogue (voice) for the trailer.
All the rest of the cast fit their parts extremely well including Paul Bettany who plays Silas, the albino Monk. Silas becomes the main villain in the film and is shown practicing the traditions of his extremist faith in the trailer; pay attention to scenes of a guy torturing himself. Yum!
The first clue.
A message from the dead.
