Movies were "nonsense": Tom Hanks slams "The Da Vinci Code".

Tom Hanks is not satisfied with every one of his cinematic works. The actor is heavily critical of the "Da Vinci Code" series. He describes the films as "nonsense" and a purely commercial venture. But there are also some good memories.

Tom Hanks settles accounts with the "Da Vinci Code" films. In an interview with the "New York Times" he describes the film adaptations of Dan Brown's bestsellers as "nonsense". The Oscar winner played symbol researcher Robert Langdon in The Da Vinci Code (2006), Illuminati (2009) and Inferno (2016).

Using a typical scavenger hunt scene, Hanks explains why he thinks the films are bullshit: "I mean, Dan Brown, bless him, says, 'Here's a sculpture in a place in Paris! No, it's way over there. See how a cross shows up on a map?".

The 65-year-old also criticizes the historical liberties that the story takes. For him, the films correspond to the true story just as little as the "James Bond" films correspond to the real world of espionage. His conclusion: "These Robert Langdon sequels are nonsense. The 'Da Vinci Code' was nonsense."

Today he sees the films as a purely commercial venture. He has nothing against well-made, commercial entertainment. "But when we did the third film, we proved it wasn't good commerce after all." "Inferno" not only lagged behind its predecessors in terms of criticism, but also at the box office.

Hanks also has fond memories of The Da Vinci Code. During filming he celebrated his birthday: "We shot at night in the Louvre. I changed my trousers in front of the Mona Lisa! They brought me a birthday cake in the Grand Salon! Who has the opportunity to experience something like that?"

At the end of May, Hanks premiered "Elvis" at the Cannes Film Festival. Director Baz Luhrmann's biopic tells the musician's story from the perspective of his manager Tom Parker. This is embodied by Hanks as a greedy man who enriches himself from Presley's financial gain.
