Star of ‘Angels and Demons’ says if you don’t like it, don’t see it

.- Tom Hanks, star of the film “Angels and Demons,” based on the book by Dan Brown, who also wrote “The Da Vinci Code,” said this week that those who feel offended by the lies of the book and the film should not see it.

Speaking to reporters, Hanks said, ''Anyone who doesn't want to go to this film, thinking it might include things they'd find objectionable: Don't go! I don't go to a lot of movies I know I won't like. I don't go to those 'Saw' films that feature torturing people. I don't want to go to movies to watch people being tortured."

Hanks said he was “very satisfied” with the character he plays in the film, Robert Langdon.

The Under Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, Mr. Angelo Scelzo, told reporters the Holy See’s policy is not to allow the filming of any movie on Vatican grounds, which is why Ron Howard was unable to film there.

“All productions concerning the Vatican must be filmed on sets that are reconstructions of the Apostolic areas,” he said.
