Noah – opens in U.S. theaters March 28, 2014

The movie is based on the story of Noah’s Ark but this story is focused on the trials of building the Ark with the human element of fight and struggle between other humans and not just the struggles in building the vessel. It stars Academy Award winner Russell Crowe as Noah, Oscar winner Jennifer Connolly as Nameeh, Emma Watson plays the role of Il-La and Anthony Hopkins who is also an Academy Award winner stars as Methusela. Supposed to open in U.S. theaters March 28, 2014 it has been a very controversial movie from all angles. The director Darren Aronofsky wants everyone to go see it, and even cautioned the religious viewers calling Noah as “the least biblical biblical film ever made.” The reason behind that is that the story of Noah and the Ark is taught in a lot of different religions and is one of the first and most important stories about life, hard work, faith, trials and tribulations. That means that there will be groups of people that will watch it and take it as a literal meaning of the story of Noah, which is not what is supposed to happen. Hollywood of course puts a dramatic twist on a religious story and anytime religion is involved controversy will follow. The film is a Hollywood depiction about the story of Noah’s Ark so liberties will be taken in both the script, the scenes, and how the story is told for dramatic effect. That doesn’t mean however that the movie will not be a blockbuster in 2014. At the end of the day it is still just a movie whether you agree with the story line or not. Then decide what you would do differently if you were to make the movie yourself. Because that’s the debate that always ensues directly following us leaving the theater anyway.
