Some facts from Angels & Demons Movie Fansite:
We all know that the first movie, The Da Vinci Code, angered the heads of the Catholic Church. This resulted to the banning of the director, Ron Howard, to shoot the prequel Angels & Demons in any of the Catholic churches. The dilemma: the setting of Angels & Demons is at Vatican City. Due to the lack of support of the Catholic heads, Howard ended up using some camera tricks and Catholic church imitations.
