Expensive biblical epics havent been a staple of Hollywood for decades, but this week saw the release of the first trailer of Noah which will hit theaters in early 2014.
Some like J.W. Wartick have written on concerns over possible divergence from the Biblical story. Fair enough, but I dont have a problem with divergence, if it is in the sense Brian Godawa describes:
" there is nothing wrong with engaging in creative license, whether it is magical seeds or six-armed Watchers, or even Noah as a warrior. I dont even think there is a problem in using non-biblical sources like the Book of Enoch or the Sumerian version of the Flood story, where unlike in the Bible, Noah receives dreams about the coming Deluge. The question is, does it support the spirit or meaning of the original story, or the original authors intent. Bible believing Christians do not necessarily own this category of Biblical interpretation. The Bible doesnt say what vocation Noah had before the Flood, only what he was afterward (a tiller of the soil). So if a Christian attacks the notion of Noah as a warrior shaman, he may really be illustrating his own cultural prejudice of the notion of a white bearded old farmer which is not in the Bible either "
However, Godawa does discuss quite a few concerns he had with an earlier draft of the script. Having only seen a brief clip of the movie, and not knowing how the script evolved or was edited, Im not going to add or subtract from his analysis other than this: I do like how the film trailer does not depict Noah as a pastoral old man leading cute, Narnia-like animals into an ark....

“RIIIIIGGGHHHHTTTTTT...... What’s a cubit?”
Best Noah story ever told.
“How long can you tread water?”
COOL South Park episode come to life
FIGHT AROUND THE WORLD LOL!
According to review in Hollywood Reporter, “Some Christians may not like that any reference to God has been removed from the movie”.
Hear no Righteousness,
See no Righteousness,
Speak no Righteousness
That would be the part that would ice if for me - no mention of God??? Not even once??? GEEZ, that’s rich.
Only in Hollywood do you let an avowed atheist direct the “Noah” movie. Then you roll out the PR to say this “artistic” interpretation should be just fine with those over reacting Christians. Then you spin control when it crashes and burns at the box office and finally you green light the atheist to do the next Christian based movie and complain the stupid Christians won’t come to see movies, so what is the point of doing them.
"How long can you tread water?"
That certainly does seem to be the pattern. Interesting how much $$$$$$$$$$$$$ these Hollywood idiots are willing to lose when the opposite could be the case if they would just pull their deeply imbedded heads out of their bums. It’s all about the Leftie/Atheist Agenda no matter what.
