Who has heard of this movie?
It couldn't be coming out at a better time with the craze over The DaVinci Code. (It's coming out Feb 25).

EDIT:

I understand this is a very passionate ( ) and sensitive issue for many members. Please use utmost respect for each other in this thread. Thank you.

Ooh, I hadn't thought of it that way before! I've heard of it, but I don't really know that much about it yet. Who's in it?

it's the DaVinci Code a movie too? or just the book. i just heard it's way too controversial.  i saw the Passion's trailer a while ago in yahoo movies, it looks really strong and graphic.

but if the Pope himself approved it already i guess the controversy is only with the Jews. i rather not say much about that cuz im not really familiar with the whole issue.  but i just saw the trailer of the movie and i liked it.

ok, i just read a summary of the Da Vinci Code in Amazon. It sounds really but really interesting.  However, i couldn't find any relation with Christ, at least it didn't mention in the summary.  why is it related? anyone knows?

I think Jewish organizations are pretty split in terms of giving approval to this project.  Mel Gibson has said time and again that he didn't intend to defame Jews in this film, and I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

But, as always, we have to reserve judgement until actually viewing the piece.  The Dead Sea Scrolls were thought to contain all sorts of information about Jesus Christ that is contradicted in today's Bible.  The Vatican has confiscated the text, and refuses to indulge anyone's curiosity or (IMO, their right to know) about the text.  Anyway, it's thought Jesus had children, but we'll never know til the Vatican wants us to.

Is "The Passion of the Christ" actually based on "The DaVinci Code?" Or do they just both have similar ideas?

I don't know anything about links to the Da Vinci code, but I'd like to see this movie. I'm tired of people always being difficult when it comes to a religious subject...

there have been all kinds of controversial movies of Christ over the years which contradicts the Bible.  this new one is based on the New Testament, not the DaVinci Code. 

take a look of the trailers, the one that says CineMovies.fr  is the long one and the one saying Official Site is the new one, shorter.

I'm looking forward to seeing this. Mel and Jim Caviezel are pretty devout Christians anyway so I doubt they would put anything offensive in there. Maybe we're becoming to obsessed with political correctness nowadays, people are demanding the movie be stopped before they even see it.

I could not agree more. Political correctness is a friggin' waste of time!

To clear things up: (We're studying this in my Bible as Lit class!)

The DaVinci Code - Thriller discussing the idea that the Holy Grail is Mary Magdalene. It talks a lot about the Gnostics and the Dead Sea Scrolls. (Gospels that were removed from the New Testament when the Roman Catholic Church was setting up the basics with the Bible.)
The DaVinci Code is being made into a movie by Ron Howard, to be released in 2005. The book has not been approved by the Pope, it hasn't really been discussed pubically with him, so it doesn't draw attention to the book. (It's pretty radical).

The Passion of the Christ - Movie about Jesus' life and Cruicifiction. Coming out Ash Wednesday.

About Jesus' brothers - It's a well known fact (and in the Bible) that Jesus had siblings. Many of them in fact. The controversy of the DaVinci Code and the Dead Sea Scrolls is that Mary Magdalene was his wife and lover. And the most loved Disciple.

Did you guys watch Entertainment Tonight today? they showed a much longer trailer of the movie. it was a lot better than the ones you can see in the link i put. i just can't wait to see this movie.

About the Da Vinci Code and what it says about Christ is not new at all. I've heard the same thing somewhere else.  I've even heard that Mary Magdalene appears in the portrait of the Last Supper.  We have several of those but i see no Mary there. Still is a big rumour.

if there will be a movie about that book, that one will also be a must see movie.

Like I said above, YES - the DaVinci Code is being made into a movie by Ron Howard, in theaters 2005. 

Actually, there is a theory that it is Mary Magdalene in DaVinci's Last Supper. She's the one sitting on Jesus's left. (When looking at the painting). She's wearing the opposite of Jesus, and Peter's hand is across her neck.
