Director Ron Howard has a suggestion for people riled by the way Christian history is depicted in "The Da Vinci Code": If you suspect the movie will upset you, don't go see it. Howard's adaptation of the blockbuster novel opened at the Cannes Film Festival Wednesday with a black-tie premiere that brought Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Ian McKellen and Paul Bettany onto Cannes' famous red carpet. Other stars who attended: Aishwarya Rai, Juliette Binoche and Sidney Poitier, who got a standing ovation when he declared the festival officially open.
