No, but I am willing to bet they focus more on the sex and violence of the people of the time - than on THAT being the reason why they were destroyed!

 

They did the same with "The Bible" minis-series and Sodom and Gomorrah. Although, I have to admit seeing the angels do karate and sword play on the way out of the city was :eek:

The trailer looked interesting, clearly a far leap from the biblical account. The animals coming to the ark however looked quite well done.

The Wikipedia page mentioned a character named Eve, I wonder if they will have some depiction of Eden?

There was also a character listed as "Fallen Angel"?

Something I do think I'll have to research, the wiki page mentioned six armed angels called "Watchers".

Is this the LGBT Noah or non LGBT Noah version? jk - Naturally Hollywood will not be using our new bible .. interested in seeing how it turns out.

I generally avoid bible films because I can't sit still through all the inaccuracies, however the trailer for this looks pretty good. 

 

Noah doesn't look feeble with a long white beard, the animals coming to him was good (although the hundreds of snakes was overkill, one pair would have been enough)...it would be cool if they'd show the angels coming down from heaven and the Nephelim but from the trailer it looked like opposition came from just the local clan leader...  

 

I fear they'll have Noah and his sons being depicted as violent but yes, at least the ark is the right shape.

 

I'll wait for reviews and opinions on my brothers and sisters but this film is a definite "maybe"

 

(Like Crowe)

Interested in seeing it?

Ooooo, It looks good. It is bound to be blasphemous. You know they are catering to the audience of today. And they just have to take poetic license with it. But whoa, it looks good!

I'm with Leslie on this one--I don't care for Russell Crowe that much---but I saw the movie preview in the theater last weekend and it looks pretty good! What I find interesting, though, is the fascination people have with end of the world scenarios--I think they can feel it coming, don't you?

Noticed this preview the other night when my wife and I were at the movies.  Cannot wait!  When I was a kid I always was fascinated by the story of Noah and what it was like in the Ark.  AND Russell Crowe is playing the part of Noah!  :D

 

here is the trailer:

Just use discernment.  I too was waiting to see what it was about, but a little more research on the internet about the movie shows that it is way off.  The only truth so far in the movie seems that there is a chracther named Noah, he builds an ark, save animals and his family and a there is a flood.  The rest of the filler is way out there.

As the director has correctly pointed out there is not much information to go on in the account of Noah to make a full length film, so of necessity there will have to be much artistic license. The question is, will that artistic license be in harmony with the Scriptural pattern of truth? I will only be able to give my opinion after I see this movie, and not before. Assuming it has a rating that my conscience can bear, I am seeing this, in fact it will be the only movie I see in a theatre this year. Personally I am excited, and have been ever since I heard about it. Someone already Bible mini-series produced by Roma Downey. This series exaggerated, downplayed, or downright changed events in a way that only someone who has read the Bible would know. I was especially bothered by the story of Abraham. They had him take Isaac a short distance from their home for sacrifice (Scripture says a 3 day journey) There was no attendant (Scripture says there were two) The movie depicted a lamb stuck in the thicket for the substitutionary sacrifice (Scripture says it was a ram) And Sarah was able to run to the site in a manner of minutes, it was a three day journey! (Besides, there is no record of this at all.) Lot and his wife were shown to have made the decision to move from Abraham's encampment. (Scripture says it was Abraham who presented the idea to Lot.) So yes, we should stay skeptical of this movie, but I for one will not assume anything until I see it.
