Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, and Anthony Hopkins are teaming together to tell us the biblical story of Noah and his ark building adventure.
As a Bible believing Christian, I am particularly interested in what they are doing here. It certainly looks like they are taking a lot of liberties with what actually happened. But then, there’s not a whole lot of extra info in the text about what happened. We’re told that men were evil, God told Noah to build an ark, and the flood was sent. So there’s going to be a lot of reading between the lines here for a feature length film. And I mean, we do know that it took Noah a while to build that ark so…
How I feel about the film will ultimately depend on just what kind of liberties are taken with the story. If the core of the story is in tact and nothing sacrilegious is done to it, it might be okay. I’m not really counting on that — especially after seeing these trailers.
Yes, “Trailers” plural. We have two here. A domestic trailer and an international trailer.
The film hits theaters on March 28th of 2014.
