Trivia: References to supposed Priory of Sion members are scattered throughout the film. For example, Botticelli's Venus graces the cover of Langdon's book "The Sacred Feminine" and there is a poster on the streets of Paris for Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo.

Trivia: Multiple churches and religious buildings refused to let the production shoot on their premises due to the "blasphemous" premise of the book. As a result, many buildings had to be created with CGI, which is noticeable throughout the film.

Continuity mistake: When Teabing rolls the Cryptex to Langdon near the end of the movie, in one shot we see that the Cryptex rolls to a stop about 6 inches from Langdon's knee, but when the shot changes to an overhead view we see the Cryptex is now suddenly at least 2 feet from Langdon. Then the shot changes again and its now more like a foot from him.

Question: Is Mary Magdalene really buried at the Louvre, or are they just making that up?

Answer: Come on. The whole book and movie are a work of fiction. The whole thing is "made up" with a few references to historical events and a few real organizations thrown in.
