COMING NEXT YEAR: THE ANTI-PASSION:

COMING NEXT YEAR: THE ANTI-PASSION: Jack Matthews of the New York Daily News writes that Ron Howard’s film of The Da Vinci Code is scheduled to be released next year. Matthews’ description of the film (and the book it was based on) makes it sound like there could very well be the same sorts of protests against The Da Vinci Code that accompanied The Last Temptation of Christ in 1988.

And in other Passion news, it was finally knocked off the top of the box office charts–by, ironically enough, The Dawn of the Dead.
