Da Vinci Code: Church Sounds Caution

NEW DELHi, India -- With the world premiere of The Da Vinci Code just days away, the Catholic Church has called on followers to regard both the book and movie with caution.

Da Vinci Code stars Tom Hanks (R) and Audrey Tautou

Last month the Vatican called for a boycott of the movie and now the church has produced a rebuttal documentary entitled, The Da Vinci Code -- A Masterful Deception.

A central premise of The Da Vinci Code is that Jesus had a child with Mary Magdalene and that a clandestine society has for centuries protected their descendants.

The movie, which stars Tom Hanks premieres at Cannes this week before being released worldwide. [The movie will open in Kiev theaters, on Thursday, May 18th]
