The Da Vinci Code film trilogy is very popular, as are the suspense and mystery books by author Dan Brown on which they are based.
The three feature films were huge box office successes, with a total of nearly $1.5 billion grossed by the franchise. In the reviews, the evaluations were mixed between critics and fans, and one of the famous who doesn’t like the saga is the actor Tom Hanks, who starred in the project.
In a recent interview with The New York TimesHanks spoke about Robert Langdon’s films, stating that he thinks the trilogy is pointless, just made to raise money.
“Oh God, that was a commercial venture. Yes, these Robert Langdon sequels are pointless. The Da Vinci Code was meaningless. […] All we were doing was promising fun. There’s nothing wrong with a good [filme] commercial, as long as it is a good [filme] commercial. When we made the third one, we proved it wasn’t a [filme] such a good trade.”
