In The Da Vinci Code, you can not only find the inner relationship of some Da Vinci's paintings, but also some religious myths.

With Forrest Gump, Tom Hanks gained his second Oscar statute. Forrest Gump is about the legendary life of a stupid man named Gump who moves all Americans with his innocence and simple mind. With over 677 million dollars income, this Tom Hanks movie had proved itself a great success in commercial.
3. Angles & Demos
As a movie released in 2009, Angles & Demos gained over 485 million dollars in box office. The movie is also based on a book written by the same author of The Da Vinci Code. In this Tom Hanks movie, Langdon needs to prevent a planned terrorist attack that aims at running Vatican. Of course, as a religious movie, Angles & Demos raises great controversy.
As a movie on Christianity, Angles & Demos puts much emphasis on the relationship between science and religion. In fact, all the scenes about Vatican was made in a temporary house because Vatican forbid the director to shot any scenes in Vatican for such a movie. Though released later than The Da Vinci Code, Angles & Demos told a story earlier than that of The Da Vinci Code.
