Tom Hank‘s latest flick, Angels & Demons, based on the best-selling novel by Dan Brown, is receiving strong opposition from the Vatican.

According to Avvenire, the Vatican’s official newspaper, the church “cannot approve” the film. Another Italian newspaper claims the Vatican will soon call for Catholics worldwide to boycott the flick.

However, Archbishop Velasio De Paolis is worried that boycotting the movie will create a “boomerang effect” by giving it more publicity.

Guess the Pope and his posse are still bothered by the fact that the book and movie suggested Jesus had secretly married that “whore”, Mary Magdalene.

Jesus loves all – some more than others!

Even last year, while filming, the Vatican banned filmmakers from entering the Holy City or any church in Rome really. So one of the movie’s key scenes, set inside church of Santa Maria della Vittoria, had to be filmed on a soundstage.

According to a Vatican spokesman, Father Marco Fibbi, he said, “Usually we read the script but in this case it wasn’t necessary. Just the name Dan Brown was enough.”

The flick hits theaters worldwide this May 15th.

We bet the Vatican will be watching it in secret! angels_and_demons1__opt
