Behind the Scenes:
The film is based on Dan Brown's novel of the same name, and the best-selling novelist's rise to fame is somewhat dramatic, inspired by "Doomsday Conspiracy" author Sidney Shelton during college Dan Brown, who wrote his first novel, The Digital Castle, in 1996, did not win him much despite his more vivid depictions of the gray area between personal freedom and national security. The expected success, followed by Angels and Demons and The Snares, were all poorly received, and it wasn't until the advent of The Da Vinci Code that Dan Brown became the best-selling author of all time, the novel that combines the code. Deciphering, art history, religion and mystical beliefs in one, topped the New York Times bestseller list for 34 consecutive weeks since its publication in March 2003, and has sold more than 40 million copies to date .
The film brings together the most golden combination in Hollywood, directed by the best Oscar director Ron Howard, starring Tom Hanks, a top Hollywood movie star with both top sales and reputation, and Audrey Tautou, Ian McKellen , Jean Reno, Paul Bettany and Alfred Molina and other strong players to join, of which Audrey Tautou was known to the audience for "Amelie"; Jean Reno in "This The character in Killer is not too cold has long been regarded as a classic by fans; Ian McKellen is the most famous actor in the UK, and his role as Gandalf in the "Lord of the Rings Trilogy" is the most brilliant one in the entire series ; Paul Bettany, the fastest-rising British actor in recent years, has been well-received for his performance in "Fight the Sea"; The evil and righteous Doctor Octopus is also impressive.
Since the filming of "The Da Vinci Code", because the original novel touched on religious conspiracy and questioned beliefs, it was strongly protested by the Catholic group, and was even opposed by the nuns during the filming of Lincoln Cathedral in the United Kingdom. It was planned to use Westminster Abbey, England, as the location for the ending scene, but the church rejected the crew's request, and the crew eventually replaced Westminster with Lincoln Cathedral as the scene for the ending.
Different from the frequent cold reception of the crew during the filming in the UK, during the filming of "The Da Vinci Code" in France, it was welcomed by French President Chirac, down to the Louvre management department. Chirac received him at the Presidential Palace. The crew members were delighted to have Audrey Tautou and Jean Reno two French movie stars in the crew, while the Louvre Museum management gave the green light to the crew's request to set the scene in the Louvre, which is also following "Louvre". The second film to enter the Louvre after The Phantom of the Floating.
In fact, Dan Brown, the author of the original book, took it easy, saying: "I'm not afraid of the controversy that arises from the subject matter of the original book. The secrets I mentioned in the book have been It has been circulated for hundreds of years, and these are not made up out of thin air, I just express these circulating legends in words, that's all." Ron Howard, who is the best director of the Oscar, is naturally uneasy in the face of pressure. Impressed: "Fictions are just fictional stories, and the films I make are also processed art forms. I just want to make a wonderful film. Although I will faithfully follow the original, I will not be The point of view or the reaction of the outside world changed my original intention and ultimate goal - to make the film good." In order to better express the suspenseful atmosphere of Dan Brown's pen, director Ron Howard watched the film while shooting. From a number of old films from the 1970s, including "The Exorcist" and "Rosemary's Baby", learn how to use which film technique to maximize the thrilling and suspenseful atmosphere of the original book from beginning to end.
Movie Comments:
There is no doubt that since 2005, "The Da Vinci Code" has received unprecedented controversy and attention whether it is the original book or the movie. The lawsuit of the original book is still under trial, but this does not stop the movie in the slightest. The release of the film, just like the suspense that held people tightly when I first saw the original book of "The Da Vinci Code" can finally be felt on the screen, even if some people criticized the casting of the cast, but Tom Han Cox's wisdom and deep acting skills, with a unique cast, coupled with the scheduling of Oscar's best director Ron Howard, it is difficult for "The Da Vinci Code" to not be a big hit at the box office.
