"Angels & Demons" is No "Da Vinci Code" at Box Office

Posted: May 16th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Angels & Demons" is No "Da Vinci Code" at Box OfficeSubmit Comment
"Angels & Demons," a prequel to "Da Vinci Code," brought in over $16 million on Friday, giving Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard their second highest opening day at the box office.

Playing in 3,527 theaters, the new movie is released nearly three years after "Da Vinci Code," which set career opening records at the domestic box office for both Howard and Hanks with a first day gross of $28.6 million and a weekend of $77.1 million.

Not only is "Angels" the duo's fourth collaboration following "Da Vinci Code," "Apollo 13" and "Splash," but their fourth film together to open in the top spot.

Come back on Sunday (May 17th) to see weekend box office estimates.

people were dissapointed from 'da vinci' and since they know the same team is doing this movie they prefer to stay home and wait for the dvd..

Agree with WV-Films: A&D is NOT the prequel of TDVC. They are just different books with the same character, that's all. But TDVC is the sequel of A&D, however Sony Pictures wanted TDVC to be the movie before A&D.

Tom Hanks is like a box of chocolates, even though it sometimes looks like sh*t, doesn't mean it is. But this film was a box of poo!

Anyone notice how Ron Howard lifts an introduction scene from The Peacemaker? If you know what I'm talking about its almost shot for shot at a pool and let me tell you...Tom Hanks is no Nicole Kidman.
