Controversy’s fueling ‘Code’

Across Europe, local exhibitorss insist they’re confident “The Da Vinci Code” will become one of the bigger blockbusters in their countries when it opens next week. And despite a lack of familiarity with Christian values and symbolism in the Far East, awareness of the movie and the hoopla surrounding it is piquing moviegoers’ interest there, too. The thriller, starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou, appears to have struck a particular chord with Europeans by turning a thousand years of their history into pop culture and giving them the chance to look with newfound interest at their own heritage. Pic will be going out on a massive 850 screens — almost half the country’s capacity.
