Skip to comments.Report: 'Noah' Fixated on 'Overpopulation and Environmental Degradation'

Director Darren Aronofsky initially described his vision for Noah, the big-budget interpretation of the Biblical story, as a look at the world's first environmentalist.
A person who caught an early test screening of the film says Aronofsky's template is still present in the movie's rough cut.
The Hollywood Reporter's new feature on the film, set for a March 28 release, details the behind-the-scenes wrangling between the film's director and the studio, all with an eye on the people of faith curious to see the story on the big screen. Test screenings haven't softened worries that spiritual audiences may not embrace what they see.
Further, THR spoke with several people who saw an early test screening in Southern California's Orange County and who identified themselves as religious. One viewer, who declined to give his name because Paramount required him to sign a nondisclosure agreement, echoed the sentiments of others by criticizing the depiction of Noah as a "crazy, irrational, religious nut" who is fixated on modern-day problems like overpopulation and environmental degradation.

here we go again, to be followed by a pro-commie “Animal Farm”
We see far too many historical films where the writers and directors take far too much artistic license and end up distorting the true facts.
This often leads to a a generation of people who see these films and walk away with nothing but a pack of lies.
For example. The movie JFK.
I remember a made for TV Noah that came out probably 15 years ago.
My wife and I, as well as, many others in the Christian community were excited. The media hype made it seem like they were doing a serious movie about Noah.
The opening scene? Moses rowing up to the ark in a small row boat. It was a horrible farce that was supposed to be like Mel Brooks style movie. We were very disappointed and turned it off no more than 10 minutes into it.
Hollywood knows how to mess things up.
Flood Epics far predate the Old Testament and cross many ancient cultures throughout history. Science tells us that it took 70,000 years to accumulate all the ice present during the last great Ice Age - and 2,000 years for it to melt. Floods? - indeed - probably flooding to an extent that nearly wiped out the relatively small total human population of Earth.
I’m surprised they didn’t produce a remake of Lord of The Flies with a George Bush character in the starring role.
How about the “new” John Adams, or A Beautiful Mind? Whenever I see a new film release that’s sold as “based on a true story”, I generally dismiss the “true” part.
Genesis 1:2 says this earth was flooded long before Noah’s days.
That is always a good idea
There is a name for people who do that: propagandist.
I liked both the John Adams miniseries and A Beautiful Mind.
It should score very well with 18-30 year old males who want to see Emma Watson dress up like Jane in Tarzan.
Are you speaking from experience? :^)
The films budget is at least $130 million.
I doubt Emma Watson in a “dress” will draw enough 18-30 yr olds to cover that (pardon the pun).
I didn’t waste my time with the rewrite of John Adams. I enjoyed A Beautiful Mind as a completely fictitious story, but Ron Howard did not portray John Nash as a fictitious character.
The real John Nash was nothing like the character in the film, nor was his EX-wife, Natasha. As a matter of fact, John Nash never delivered a “Love” speech when he received the Nobel Prize in Economics. The rewrite of the real John Nash is offensive, at best.
It’s inaccurate to state that the earth was flooded. It was covered in water, but it wasn’t “flooded”, although I do appreciate your point.
Genesis 1:2 AND the earth 'became' without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. (deep what?)
AND the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the water.
IIPeter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of,
that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world (age) that then WAS, being overflowed with water, perished:
Peter is not describing Noah's flood as he already wrote about Noah in II Peter 2:5.
