"The Greatest Story Ever Told,” is not the greatest movie ever made, but the 1965 epic about the life of Christ at least understood the nature of its sour;ce material. The Bible, Old and New Testaments alike, as a rich vein of subject matter – and profits – for the movie industry.
Then in the late 1960s, Hollywood made it’s hard left turn and God and the Bible were all but forgotten in Tinsel Town.
But this year, the movie industry seems to have rediscovered the Bible as a very marketable/lucrative subject. Three major movies will be released based on Biblical narrative, with another five faith-themed movies also coming to theatres in 2014. Four more Bible-themed movies are in the works for 2015.
According to Gallup, half of Americans identify as “Christian” or “Protestant” with another 24% identifying as “Catholic.” Maybe Hollywood has finally realized that it pays to pay attention to religious audiences.
Some of these movies, such as Darron Aronofsky’s big budget epic, “Noah,” and the Jesus bio-pic, “Son of God,” based on the popular television series “The Bible,” have been heavily promoted and covered by the media. Others have flown under the radar, like Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” starring Christian Bale, set to be released the end of the year (Dec. 12.).
