Correspondence to religious accounts of Noah

Noah is an important figure in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, with accounts in both the Bible/Torah and Qu'ran.

When Christian screenwriter Brian Godawa acquired a copy of the script in October 2012, he posted an evaluation on his website with the title "Darren Aronofsky's Noah: Environmentalist Wacko". Comparing it to what is said in the Bible, he said "If you were expecting a Biblically faithful retelling of the story of the greatest mariner in history and a tale of redemption and obedience to God you’ll be sorely disappointed." He predicted that the film "will be rejected by millions of devoted Bible readers worldwide because once again it subverts their own sacred narrative with a political agenda of pagan earth religion that is offensive to their Faith."[33]

Producer Scott Franklin told Entertainment Weekly, "Noah is a very short section of the Bible with a lot of gaps, so we definitely had to take some creative expression in it. But I think we stayed very true to the story and didn't really deviate from the Bible, despite the six-armed angels."[34]

"Worrisome" feedback from largely religious audiences at test screenings in October 2013 led The Hollywood Reporter to report on tensions between Aronofsky and Paramount over control of the final cut.[35][31]

Any of y'all gonna check this out when it releases?   I'm sure I will see it at some point.   I want it to be awesome, but I'm skeptical given exactly what ahmed said, "It's hollywood".

Damn, Anthony Hopkins refuses to age!

Given how easily persuaded the public is, it will be interesting to see how much new interest this film sparks in Old Testament literature. Do you (anyone) believe that this film will serve as a catalyst for future biblical blockbusters?

What are some other past Bible-based movies outside of the obvious cinematic legends like The Ten Commandments and Passion?

So far, it seems this Noah movie won't be popular among Christians, Jews and Muslims.  So it probably won't do well in the box office.  If that's the case, then this movie will not serve as a catalyst for future biblical blockbusters.

The Ten Commandments and the Passion are pretty much it.  I can't think of any other Biblical movie that made as much money as these two.

Christians and Jews who have been asked to review the script or see early screenings are saying this film isn't faithful to the Biblical account and that it's more of a "Environmentalist Wacko" film.  

I can see Hollywood distorting the Biblical account and using this film to preach global warming.

I would love to see a movie based on the accounts of the 12 sons of Jacob from the BOOK OF JASHER, on par with the Biblical Nerrative (no contradictions whatsoever) except way more details, especially in the battles they had and they were unbelievably powerful, strength of bulls and ruthless as they come.

They would crush mens skulls with rocks and chop heads and limbs off like nothing, the perfect viscous warriors that were born to massacre

Another part where Jacob himself came behind 2 men that were about to kill one of his sons, they were shoulder to shoulder and Jacob cut them both in half with a single swing (sword)

Some Christians do not agree with the book but the Bible does mention the book of Jasher and to me it is authentic, IMO

As for Noah and Hollywood, lol, they never get it right, they spent millions yet they do not even bother reading the Biblical Narrative properly. Just like Michelangelo's David, the priceless art work that did not even have David circumcised, lol, does anyone even read the Bible  Huh

I can see a movie made out of that passage where the kids are making fun of a fat man and god sends a bear to rip them limb from limb. It has action,bullying etc, I envision a young paul giamatti with the dick of a young Kenny rogers playing the role.
