When the museum's curator is gruesomely murdered inside Paris's famed Louvre Museum, Langdon and Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tatou), the granddaughter of the curator, race through Europe trying to uncover clues as to where they might the Holy Grail. Unfortunately Opus Dei, an ancient religious order, has ulterior plans. Teabing and his sidekick Silas want the grail to ruin the reputation of the Roman Catholic Church. Their belief is that the grail (which is not actually a grail at all, but a person) holds information regarding the relationship between Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. Also starring Sir Ian Mckellen, Alfred Molina, and Jean Reno the film is an action-packed adventure that shakes the foundations of the church. Directed by Ron Howard and written by Akiva Goldsman, The Da Vinci Code was one of the most commercially successful films of the year.
