Tom Hanks Warns Sensitive People of Angels and Demons

By Casey LaMarca

With Dan Brown's "Angels and Demon's" adaptation hitting theaters this Friday, Tom Hanks warns sensitive viewers to avoid seeing the film in regards to its subject matter. Hanks returns as Robert Langdon in the follow up to the 2006 box-office smash The Da Vinci Code.

"If anyone feels that the film is going to be offensive to them, don't see it," Hank says. "I'm here to say not to see the film. Stay away, please, please. I beg you."

Although Angels and Demons is not sparking the same amount of controversy as The Da Vinci Code did three years ago, the themes of the sequel (the book is actually a prequel) are still dealing with controversial and sensitive matter surrounding religion and the church.

Hank states that "Every movie is exploited by the marketing people, but it's not like they created the controversy."

Directed by Ron Howard, Angels and Demons opens worldwide this Friday with potential for being a box-office smash like its predecessor.
