ROME - Director Ron Howard claimed Sunday that the Vatican interfered with efforts to get permits to shoot certain scenes of his "Angels & Demons" religious thriller in Rome - a charge the Vatican said was purely a publicity stunt.

The film, which stars Tom Hanks and is based on the best-selling novel by Dan Brown, has its world premiere Monday in Rome.

Poor Ron. Did the CGI geeks fail him?

Is anyone really surprised at that?
The Catholic church gets into anything that isn't their business if they don't agree with it.

Excuse me, ma'am?

This "is" their business. Would you appreciate a stalker showing up at your house with a film cam?

Rome is their house?

Publicity stunt. Lots of locations have restrictions. Even Hollywood (the area) has restrictions on filming.

I disagree with you, this is NOT their business to dictate what movies we watch or what movies are filmed. Rome does not BELONG to the church.

Newspapers always start with the big city. They go like New York, Washington, it does not necessarily mean the city in itself.

The film is clearly set in St.Peter's Square. That's located in an area called "the Vatican". This is also a territory which the Papacy and the Catholic (sorry the word offends you ) church owns. The Pope is the head of this state. They own these areas by default. Mussolini thought so. All of Europe still does.

They actually have the right to decide who comes in and who gets out. It "is" their house. This is not Rome. Actually, Rome sort of belongs to the church too, historically.

Ron's just a sneaky bugger who sent in spies to do some secret cam work. That's cheesy and childish
