The latest news on 'Noah'...


"The film is inspired by the story of Noah. While artistic license has been taken, we believe that this film is true to the essence, values and integrity of a story that is a cornerstone of faith for millions of people worldwide. The biblical story of Noah can be found in the book of Genesis."

Here is my question...does anyone excited about a Darren Aronofsky film about Noah actually care if it is Biblically factual?  Like, is that why we are going?  If we wanted a strict Biblical epic steeped in scripture, wouldn't we look for the next Kirk Cameron film?  I just feel like they are making so much fuss over this movie and that can be a really bad thing, unless your film is exceptional.  Like, this is rivaling all the "it's practically porn" talk circling Blue is the Warmest Color last year at Cannes.  Thankfully, that film survived because it was just that good.  If Noah is a bomb, then this constant debate over it's scriptural accuracy is only going to make that explosion seem...bigger.
