The Library of Secrets
If you look closely at the pages of your paperback copy of “The Da Vinci Code,” you will see something interesting — there are no actual pictures in the book.
Instead, the pages feature text only. No words are highlighted or written in quotation marks. Instead, they’re printed in a style that reminds me of manga comics.
This is because the book was published before the era of digital books. Back then, publishers wanted to highlight their importance by moving away from normal printing and into digitally created images.
It’s almost as if the creators of the da Vinci code movie were trying to imitate the storyline of the novel despite changing some things.
Here are all the different ways movies have tried to adapt the popular story for the screen. And when comparing them to the original, what works best?

Paragraph: Fans loved the first film so much they voted it as one of Amazon’s Top Ten Most Exciting Movie Premieres. But how well do you know the most famous cinema adaptation of all time? Read on for more details.
There were two films made about the Da Vinci Code: the first was released in 2003 and received 26 million views, while the second got 27 million people through the door. Both were bombs at the box office, which means fans
The Lost Letter
An early film in the series was The Lost Ticket, which aired on CBS on January 24, 1991. However, without Keanu Reeves, it lacked the popularity of the later movies.
The first movie to feature Tom Cruise as Léo de Raqoole was Not Quite Human, released August 6, 1992.
However, the second movie Abandoning All Hope did not come out until February 28, 1993. Both novels have many similarities, but the movie versions are different. In the books, Robert Langdon is an archeologist while he becomes a priest in the films. None of the movies have portrayed Rome well though they do talk about Vatican City and its countryside.
However, the most notable difference between the book and movie adaptations are the ending scenes. In the book, the viewers only get to read about the end scene; they never see it on screen. Though both movies received mixed reviews, with critics praising their action sequences and themes, they were mostly panned for their inaccurate depictions of the mind-numbing effects that cause the characters to hallucinate.
Thus far there has been one movie sequel and two television sequels.
The Angelic Conversation
After learning about the story of Jacopo Sandri, Dan Brown would like to have him attend a conference with Robert Langdon. To achieve this goal, he writes in his book, “the two of them will need to have an ‘angelic conversation’ that brings some parts of Jacopo’s soul back into harmony with the rest of him.
This can be achieved through a process called Contemplative Training, which involves training the mind and balancing the emotions. By doing this, Jacopo becomes more stable and peaceful, making it easier to live with what happened to him.”
Brown also talks about how we can find inner peace after reading the novel or watching any of the films. He suggests having these conversations as a way to get rid of our negative feelings towards others who have died because of social injustices.
One of the more popular films in this category is “The Last Kiss”. This movie got the highest rating from a lot of people, although some may say it was too dramatic. It took them right into the story line.
This is one of the first movies that comes to mind when someone thinks about The Da Vinci Code. A lot of people consider it as the very definition of The DA Vincenzo code.
Although it gets a little confusing because there are several versions of the film, the basic storyline is the same. Except for maybe the last few minutes of the film, you can watch the whole video below.
There’s also an audio version available. Although the transcript is written directly above my typing, I still prefer reading actual words over listening to my voice.
The Graveyard Book
Robert Donoughue wrote a book called Man in Motion, which was released in 2001. However, his first written work became very popular before that if you do not include films!
His novel, Shadow Children is about a boy named Strider who believes he’s an orphan since he runs away from home quite a lot.
However, his family still loves him and it all works out in the end. If you like this movie, you will also love another one of Mr.Donoghue’s novels titled Knight Rider. It has some similar themes at the same time.
It involves police officers and cars, but with dragons instead.
The Last Dragonslayer
While there have been many movies based on Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code, only one movie has been made so far for his other book, Angels & Demons.
However, due to its storyline being very similar to that of the Inferno, almost every fan thinks that another film should be made with this story too.
In order for this to happen though, Dan Brown would need to give his permission. So if you want to see another Angels & Demons film, contact your local theatre manager and tell them to get their cameras ready!
Dan Brown has stated in an interview that he will write either two more books or a new script within the next three years. This may mean that we can expect yet another Da Vinci Code film between now and then.
The Mona Lisa Smile
While there have been several versions of this story, most agree that Leonardo da Vinci completed at least two paintings with an identical panel. One was called “The Kiss” and featured human figures; the other, now named “La Gioconda,” or the smiling woman, included music in her smile and stars.
There has always been speculation about which member of his family she might be — including sisters who were known for their humor and intelligence. In fact, critics say, it is the intelligence and humorous quality that lends La Gioconda its enigmatic appeal.
Some believe he painted a third portrait to replace the one destroyed after being tipped over during cleaning. They suggest that perhaps there was some drama between him and the owner of the panel, or that he did not like what they had done to the painting.
Whatever the case, reports from when the picture went missing indicate that people still knew how to play tricks in the 15th century. It could have been lost due to trickery by locals trying to add mystery to a building project, or because someone wanted money (the original panel cost $40,000 back then).
Or it could just be another hoax.
The Gospel According to the Hibees
While there have only been two films made about the movie adaptation of Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinne Chris Cod,” that doesn’t mean you can’t find other versions of the story. In fact, there are many different interpretations of what actually happened between characters in the book when it comes to the Holy Grail, Jesus Christ, and the secret society known as the Priory of Sion.
Many people believe the original TV series was the best version of the film, with its own take on where the story takes place, how events unfold, and who the major players are.
There were also reports of a sequel being written called The House of the Dead III which was supposedly going to be set around the time period of the first movie but has not yet been produced with any cast or crew.
The Da Vinci Code
As mentioned earlier, there was a novel and later a film of The Da Vinci Code. However, fans of the book know that it was not written by Dan Brown but published under a pseudonym.
There have been many films based on the same theme since then such as Angels Heart starring Julia Roberts which came out in 1990. Also, 1999’s The Next Christma was also released and shared the same name with another movie coming out in 2000 named Christmas Miracle!
Fans may be pleased to learn that there are currently no plans for more movies based on the story. Both Universal Pictures (the studio who made the film) and New World Press (publisher of the books) commented saying they will never let anyone make a movie again if they don’t want to.
