Tom Hanks Believes ‘The Da Vinci Code’ Trilogy Was Trash

Media Take Out Staff |

Tom Hanks starred in The Da Vinci Code trilogy, but he admits that the franchise was terrible.

“Oh, God, that was a commercial enterprise. Yeah, those Robert Langdon sequels are hooey. The Da Vinci Code was hooey. I mean, Dan Brown, God bless him, says, ‘Here is a sculpture in a place in Paris! No, it’s way over there. See how a cross is formed on a map? Well, it’s sort of a cross.’ Those are delightful scavenger hunts that are about as accurate to history as the James Bond movies are to espionage,” he said to The NY Times.

“But they’re as cynical as a crossword puzzle. All we were doing is promising a diversion. There’s nothing wrong with good commerce, provided it is good commerce. By the time we made the third one, we proved that it wasn’t such good commerce.”

The first movie grossed $224 million in its worldwide opening weekend and a total of $760 million worldwide.
