I don't care for the book much but the movie trailer looks really good!
Me, 'cept for the fact it has Tom Hanks in it. I really can't stand him, nor his accent/voice. He's just not the right actor for the job IMO.
Not me - haven't even read the book. However, I AM excited that Audrey Tautou is in it. I hope that Tom Hanks keeps his hands off her.
I am excited. I was just given some passes to the movie theater and I already know when I'm gonna use them.
I feel the same way, but I'm sure the movie will still be good.
It was written specifically for Harrison Ford, but he turned it down. I'd agree Hanks isn't the perfect pick for the role. However, what is wrong with accent? I shutter to think if you ever heard me speak
I guess it's more his voice and tone rather than accent per se. I find it a bit nasal for my liking. It just really grates.
I agree with Tom Hanks not being right for the job. I've never really liked him either. I think the movie will be pretty good still. I'll be amazed if they manage to screw it up - the books as good a screenplay so there shouldn't be too much deviation.
yeah i agree.... why Tom Hanks?
Anyways, i think the book is pretty solid... well written and great imagery. I hope the movie is just as captivating as the book when i first read it. Da Vinci code is by far the strongest out of the four books Dan has written.
I'm reluctant about Ron Howard directing it... the book is very arts/history driven. I would have loved to see Ang Lee or Peter jackson had the first jab at it. Ron Howards action movies... im not a such a big fan of. With him its either an overreliance on dialogue, or special effects.
I am looking forward to it. I hope they stay clsoe to the book. I hate it when you read the book and then find a lot of differences in the movie.
Trust me, they won't wander too far from the book - it was written to be a movie if you ask me. The historical exposition is the one thing that could pose a problem. It'll be interesting to see how Ron Howard deals with it.
Ron Howard ...?
Ummmm ... pass.
Ignoring the failings of the book as well, this thing is just fuff. Sorry.
I'm not entirely sure the respective dirctors of 'Hulk' and 'Meet the Feebles' could have added more than the buffon they already hired to sit at the helm.
Didn't like the book so have no inkling to see the movie no matter how good the trailers look.
Both of the Dan Brown books I've read (the other being the precursor to DaVinci) are basically the same in format/storyline, extremely predictable, and a huge waste of time. I already wasted several hours reading the blasted stories. I'm not about to waste a couple more to see the movie.
My only reason for even considering the movie is for the moments when my netflix 3 are shipping, everything else on TV is showing The O.C.and its many teen drama variants and QVC is selling quilts. Otherwise, I wouldn't be interested.
That being said, I may watch it eventually just to see what the but hullabaloo is all about, how they pull off a pg-13 with the "ceremony" (they won't make enough if they pull an r), and how bad an actor tom hanks has become. I used to think he was excellent - I love SPR and have enjoyed many others. I even liked Castaway once he got on the island (too much early build up, which was essential but badly written/acted).
I might see, simply because I don't have the time to read the book.
(and, I rather like Tom Hanks)
Considering how bad the book was, the movie should be an improvement.
I am because I worked on it I want to know that all my efforts were worth it!
Did you get to meet Audrey Tautou?? She's the reason I want to see the movie! I <3 her.
Awesome! What exactly did you do?
I don't care for the movie but i will see it because i see all movies that come out...thats the life of being in the biz.
I can't say too much, but I worked as a runner on one of the sets in England. I saw Audrey Tatou, but only briefly, as well as Hanks, Sir McKellan and Jean Reno, who was the friendliest of the lot. I spoke to Ron Howard at one point (I didn't recognise him lol!)
Btw, was good to see a lot of Macs being used by the crew
have fun seeing it all of you sinners! and enjoy the after party... in hell!
I haven't read the book, mainly because of the industry that has grown up around it. Yeah, that's as stupid as those who hate the iPod "because everyone else has one", but I haven't read any critics who actually like Dan Brown's writing style.
I do have a weakness for the kind of plot involving an alternative history that dovetails seamlessly into our own, but anything like this has to stand up against Umberto Eco's "Foucault's Pendulum" or Neal Stephenson's "Cryptonomicon" and "Quicksilver". If anyone tells me "The Da Vinci Code" is as fascinating as any of them, I'll read it and go to the movie.
Hell, I might just read it anyway so I'll know if it's crap or not.
Yeah, when I read it, I enjoyed it but in a "cheap thrill" kind of way. The plot was terribly predictable and similar to Angels and Demons, and the writing style was pretty average but I found most of the historical (whether it's real or not) info compelling enough to keep reading.
I didn't realize he is in this movie...I may just see it then. I've been a fan of his ever since Leon.
I am embarassed to say that I read it in the end and quite enjoyed it
It's a good book to read on the tube home with your brain in neutral. So I'm actually quite looking forward to the film.
