It's round two for Catholics and The Da Vinci Code.
The Catholic League, the anti-defamation and advocacy organization that defends the rights of Catholics to participate in American public life without defamation or discrimination for their beliefs, is going up against the Ron Howard-directed Angels and Demons. The film is due in theaters on May 15 and features Tom Hanks reprising his role as art historian Robert Langdon. The Catholic League claims the film boasts an anti-Catholic agenda, and the group previously went to bat against 2006's The Da Vinci Code. The film eventually went on to earn a whopping $758 million in global box office receipts.
The Catholic League plans to send out several news releases about the falsehoods it claims appear in the film and in Dan Brown's uber-successful books, on which the films are based.
