Angels and Demons Science and Religion Featurette

I don't know how I missed this, considering I'm a big fan of the book, but a new featurette for Sony's big summer movie Angels & Demons hit last week focusing on the battle between science and religion that is the theme of Dan Brown's book. Director Ron Howard and stars Tom Hanks and Ewan McGregor talk about the ideas behind Angels & Demons and how they play into the story. It's actually a fairly fascinating and entertaining video. I'm a bit baffled that Angels & Demons doesn't have more buzz, but I'm guessing that Sony has been marketing it to the older demographics and not to the younger summer audiences.
Watch the "Science and Religion" featurette for Angels & Demons:
Angels & Demons is directed by prolific filmmaker Ron Howard, of everything from Willow to Backdraft to Apollo 13 to A Beautiful Mind to the previous The Da Vinci Code. The script was written by veteran screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, of Lost in Space, A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, The Da Vinci Code, and I Am Legend most recently. This film is based on Dan Brown's popular bestselling novel of the same name. Sony Pictures will be debuting Angels & Demons in theaters everywhere on May 15th this summer.
